    Deepest sympathy Ben, Ash and family on the loss of Rita. Rita certainly was one of a kind, a lady that we absolutely adored. Rita became a much loved member of our family and we feel blessed that we had so much time with her, especially over the past year. We chatted together, cried together and boy did we laugh together. Rita we hope that we made you feel as special as you made us feel every single day. We will cherish the memories of your awesome friendship and continue sharing stories of how you made us laugh. Until we meet again, we love you Rita eater!

    Beautiful Rita, you made the job of cleaning fun to go to! Your humour was infectious and so to your love of plants. You will always have a special place in my memories.

  7. Angharad Booth says:

    Dear Ben and family, thinking of you all at this time. My sincere condolences. Rita lived with us in the late 70s in Perth. (Rina Booth is my mum ). I have the utmost fondest of memories of your mum when I was little right to my 20s . She was simply one in a million and a great friend to mum and took me under her wing when I was little always laughing and taking me swimming. May you and your family find comfort knowing she was well loved. Sincerely, Angharad Booth

    Love from Craig & Fiona

  9. Marilyn and Graeme Gough, Murwillumbah, N.S.W.

    I remember dear Rita as a lovely young girl in Rasharkin, Northern Ireland, so long ago, with her Dad Norman, lovely sister Roberta and brothers. In recent years Rita was a long way from us here in Northern New South Wales, and we are so saddened that we must now say a farewell to a dear cousin. We send our love and sympathy to Rita’s son Ben and family, and to Rita’s sister Roberta and husband Ian, and her brothers in the UK. Our thoughts will be with all those attending Rita’s farewell service on Friday 15th at 2 o’clock.
