Rita was an amazing woman. She was a loving mother / mother in law /nana / and Nonny. She will be greatly missed.
You will be missed and always loved
I want to say what an amazing woman my Mom Rita Monk was.She bravely fought and defeated this ugly cancer,all while dealing with the death of her baby boy Skip and beloved husband Frank. She was able to move on with life and chose to begin again here with me in NC. The past 406 days I treasure. When cancer showed it's ugly face back to her,she wasn't sure if she could go to battle again.But she put her big girl panties on and returned to war. She fought a frightening,painful and courageous fight until her body just could no longer struggle,setting her soul free. To soar high above all pain and misery. Free to be reunited with all those she loved dearly,knowing the ones she left behind are strong enough to be without her.For we will all be together again one day......I ask that all those she has known to remember her fondly today and always. And also pray that one day there will be a cure that can destroy that ugly creature called cancer.
