Rita was a loving mother and phenomenal grandmother. She loved cooking and hosting family gatherings with her children and grandbabies. She also loved taking care of those in need and babysitting her grandsons: Darius and Dylan. In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting and shopping for her grandbabies. When she was able, she would prepare meals for BHPD in what has been named "Button's Cafe."

Rita, 59, of Benton Harbor passed away very unexpectedly on Nov. 11, 2021, at Spectrum Health Lakeland Medical Center in St. Joseph.

Rita will forever be cherished by her better half, Donald Taylor; and remembered in the hearts of her children: Elizabeth, Casey, David, Stephanie, Merissa and Sapphire; her sweet grandbabies: Darius and Dylan Steed, Charles and Cayden Ray, Kenneth Bernard, Aria and Elijah Trice, and Luna Mahon. She was greatly loved by her godchildren: Anita Terrell, Gene Dickleman, and Briana Fischer; her siblings: Naomi Gail, Vernon Jay, and Leonard Elliot Jr., family, and friends. Some of her proudest memories are with her better half, Donald Taylor, and niece, Teri Lynn Sutton.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Alice; father, Vernon; sister, Brenda; brother, Robert; and granddaughter, Amelia Steed.
