Petrita loved spending time with her family. She enjoyed being on the boat, watching her grandchildren play sports.
She loved to cook, especially Mexican food and enjoyed decorating her home. It was always beautiful.
She taught aerobics in Rawlins and rocked to the oldies but goodies.
Petrita was always willing to listen to everyone's problems and help with anything she could.
She enjoyed dancing to any kind of music especially Country Music with her husband. But when it came to the oldies she would just get up and dance.
She will be missed by all.
