Rita Gail Horn, age 66, of Pace, Florida went peacefully to be with our Lord, after a 14 year battle with cancer. She was born on November 15, 1946 in Canton, Georgia. Rita graduated from Crestview High School with the Class of '64.
Rita retired from Santa Rosa County School Board after working as an Administrative Assistant at the County Office. But her greatest work on this earth was the work for her Lord. She took great pride in her service as the organist at Immanuel Baptist Church for over 30 years.

She is also survived by siblings Andy (Carolyn) Keith, Becky Moore, Bobbie (Ken) Dukes, and Carolyn Dalton.
