Rita was a dynamic personality and award winning photographer. She owned Woodhaven Galleries for over 40 years and was a cherished asset to our community, immortalizing many of our family members for generations to come in her amazing style. Her incredible creativity and talent, which was part of her life's signature, will be greatly missed by all.

Her motto was " A thing of beauty is a joy forever!" and she certainly lived that to the fullest.

To honor her and her love of the photographic art form, we are requesting donations in lieu of flowers to The Joy of Giving Something a not-for profit organization which sponsors both junior and adult photographic talents.

Their website is www.jgsinc.org should you wish to view their work.

Checks are made payable to: Joy of Giving Something Inc.
