I so enjoyed working with Rita at Berhalter Furniture in the early 1970’s. Rita was a great lady. Sorry for your loss.

I remember Rita from Sellicks. Nice, nice lady. I went to K'ville High School and my parents had the Burger Dairy Store and .y dad had the Nash Car store. My maiden name was Hoop. My sister Pat also graduated from K'ville high school. Rita, you are in God's arms now.
