Rita graduated from Old Orchard Beach High School. Sadly, Rita went blind in her early 20s, but it never interfered with her joyful nature.

She loved to listen to music and books on tape. Rita had a lovely voice; she enjoyed singing and was very creative, she dabbled on her keyboard writing music and lyrics. She also wrote beautiful poetry. She was also inventive, trying to craft things to make life easier. Rita was quick witted and had a great sense of humor, she loved to joke with her friends. She will be best known for her kind, loving spirit and generosity.
