    federal way waOne of my favorite childhood memories was staying at grandma’s farm and walking across the field to visit the Johnson family. Rita and I enjoyed exploring things along the creek that flowed in front of their house. Rita, her parents and siblings will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences to her husband, children and grandchildren.

    We are sorry to hear the passing of Rita , she was always such a nice person to know and be around. I remember going to country school at Herman #1 in Hamlin with Rita and her siblings and walking home after school. When I was a freshman at DeLamere and Rita was a Senior, Rita rode to DeLamere with me. God Bless all your Families.
