Jack, Kelli, Kyleigh, Griffin, and Lylah, we are sorry for your loss. We will miss Rita so much. Her beautiful, kind, and sweet spirit, along with her inspiring faith will be missed greatly. We are lifting you up in prayer during this difficult time. We love you all very much. James Lorance, Sr., Scarlet Lorance, and Caleb Turner, April 30, 2021 Rita was a good person. There's not any better compliment than that. I grew up with her and her family in my early church days, and I have had a chance to see her a couple of times in recent years. She is still the same person whether 17 or 71, and I will miss her.
