Rita loved to play softball, games especially Loteria, dominos with her friends, riding with her friend Eva Franco. But most importantly she loved being in the sunshine spending time with her daughter and granddaughter as well as enjoying watching “novelas” with Lucy. Rita was an excellent provider and a hard worker. She was an awesome mother who prided herself in taking exceptional care of her children Claudio and Erika and was the sweetest grandmother to Lucy and Violet. You would also find Rita playing “washers” with her family and friends. She loved to eat tacos de tripitas and her favorite candy bar was Payday.
