Rita was a 1979 graduate of Butler High School in Huntsville, Alabama where she excelled in everything she touched. She participated in the Mexican Student Exchange Program and loved her Accapella Choir. She attended Calhoun College and earned her Masters degree in cosmetology in Huntsville, Alabama. She owned and operated two salons in the Eva area. After giving birth to her two precious daughters, Rita met and married the man who God chose for her, Ken Marsh; her rock and love of her life. They married on February 13, 1997. She became "Mamma Ree" with the births of her grandchildren. Rita enriched weddings, funerals, and special occasions with her angelic voice. She was preceded in death by her father, Marion Gerald Hale; her beloved grandparents, Hugh and Leldon Edmondson (Papa and Mamma Ed); and uncles Lamond Edmondson and Decherd Edmondson. She leaves to cherish her memory; her husband, Ken Marsh; daughters Taylor (Jeremy) Cone and Tiffany Tubbs; Mother and Stepfather Gwyn and Jerry Bredeson; Grandchildren Aden, Carter, and Heidi Cone, Chloe, Sammy, Jamie and Brooklyn Marsh; Stepchildren, Justin (Tammy) Marsh, Heath (Tanya) Marsh, and Hannah Marsh; a brother, Reggie Wade Hale; Mother-In-Law Dorothy Nell Marsh; Sister-In-Law Terrie Marsh; Brother-In-Law Hal Marsh; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, and too many friends to count as everyone was a friend to her.
