Rita was a genuine, sincere friend who was kind to everyone. I have wonderful memories of being at her birthday parties. She introduced us to Mad Libs and the Magic 8 Ball. Every time I do Mad Libs, I think of her and her fun, positive outlook on life. I will miss her.

I served with Rita at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building as a Hosting Missionary for many years. She always had a smile for every guest. Even though her health was not the best she never complained. We missed her when she moved to host at the Relief Society Building. Everyone on our shift loved Rita! I know her family will miss her, but will be blessed to see her again. She was a faithful wonderful sister.

Jon and Family, Rita was a wonderful cousin. I so admired her courage and humor through her trials. I remember complimenting her on her cute hairdo at the Huff Reunion and she reached up and snatched her wig off her head. There are 12 of us Huff cousins and now 2 have gone on before us. We know we will see them again. May you be comforted as you grieve and miss Rita. Love, MarLeah

She always made the very best treats (walnut squares) at the family reunions. We will miss her.

I LOVE RITA! I will miss her dearly. My heart goes out to you, Bishop Holloman. I loved her laugh, which was a constant when near her. I remember when she had to have the bone graft from her posterior when she had cancer removed from her head. She said, "This is the only time you can call me a butthead!" She rocked! She will rock with Brenna now!
