Not sure what to say?

I was one of the snot nosed little cousins that probably tormented her. One of the last times I got to visit with her was down a Theo's place. We had such a good visit. She will be missed by so many. She had such a great spirit about her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

I have memories of being at the Barr farm for reunions when young - as one of her younger cousins, she would tease us and make us feel at home when we visited..very friendly and such a great laugh...I mostly remember her smiling. She will be missed by many family and friends.

Such great memories of such a wonderful, pure-hearted, fun-loving, REAL person! So glad I got to spend some growing up years with her in Hoxie, KS. All who knew her are better people because they did. I miss you being in this existence, girlfriend! Until we meet again. . . .

Marita was such a sweet friend with a wonderful sense of humor. I was so looking foward to seeing her at our class reunion in October but now I will looking forward to seeing her in Heaven and we can talk uninterruped forever. I am sorry I never met her family, but you had to be very special to be part of her. God bless you.

Aunt Marita was a wonderful person-so warm and caring. I have many great memories of the times spent together. Those memories I will hold close to my heart until I see you again...Love you forever.

Marita was an incredible woman... Awesome mother, teacher, and a dear friend. I am so VERY blessed to have known her.
