Rita Gail Pope passed away in Humble, Texas on Saturday, July 18th, 2020 at the age of 76. She was preceded in death by her husband Joe Howard Pope. She will forever be remembered by her children Regina (Tommy Jr.) Duncan, Ricky (Rose), and James (Mischelle). Rita will also be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Dwayne, Katrina, Samantha, Jodi, Tommy III, Steven, Ricky Jr., James, Jr., and Dustin, her great-grandchildren Samantha, Hunter, Hailey, Katlyn, Andrew, Seth, Dominic, Celeste, Tommy IV, Weston, Daniel, and her great-great grandson Brantley, as well as her siblings, extended family, and dear friends.

Rita was born in Norfolk, Virginia. She and her husband Joe raised their children in Pasadena, Texas. Rita worked at Red Bluff Bingo Hall where she enjoyed keeping up with the regular customers. She loved to play slots and never missed her soap operas.

Rita always warned her loved ones that she would haunt them in the afterlife, so if you are one of those people and your lights flicker or you hear unexplained noises in your home, you can be sure that it is her paying you a visit.

Rita was the best friend you could have. She was always willing to help you in any way or share a cup of coffee while you blew off steam or had a pity party. She would always make you feel better! She adored her family and always put them first sacrificing her own needs. She put her faith in Jesus Christ and I know I will see her again! She’ll have a pot of coffee ready and say “About time you got here!” I will miss her until then and look so forward to telling how much she meant to all of us! LOVE YOU

Even though we haven't visited in some time, know that the memories made while growing up on Hempstead, will last an eternity. We were some of the luckiest kids to have had the families we did growing up. You and Joe will forever be remembered in mine and my siblings lives. Thank you for loving all us kids the way you did. You're gone but never forgotten. Rest in peace....you deserve it.
