Oh My Darling Great Aunt Rita.. how I shall remember you!. I enjoyed our frequent phone chats where you would make me laugh so hard that sometimes it hurt. But it was our shared joy in God's beautiful nature and your pioneering spirit that I loved most. You were always doing something because "it's not good to just sit around".. and this was advice from you in your late nineties when you certainly deserved to just sit around after a century of being so productive on the farm and in the kitchen.. I cherish the feathers from your own pride of peacocks that you gave to me . You will always be one of the most inspiring people I ever met. Miss you I will. Claudia Scott, Jacksonville, Florida

We will miss our Pownal friend and neighbor, Rita, who was such a good model for aging with grace and dignity. We enjoyed many a front porch conversation with her and feel fortunate to have known her. A long life, well-lived.
