RITA K. AYSCUE|
July 13, 1959 – May 10, 2013
She loved all creatures big & small, especially her cat, Taz, and three dogs, Obi, Chewie & Magic. She cherished her family and many friends. She loved life, people, spreading joy, laughter and fun wherever she went. Rita had the uncanny ability to light up a room and draw everyone around her into fun. She will always be remembered for her kindness, generosity, and compassion and for the love she shared so freely with others.
