Rita was not just the sum of her schooling, and employment, she was an awesome singer (Chaka Khan didn't have nothing on her), she loved singing with her sisters and family, she had a green thumb (very proud of her flowers), she loved sharing her wine talents, famous for her dipped chicken, loved spending time with and taking care of her grandchildren, and always laughing and having fun with family. If you knew her, you know she kept it real and raw.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter Cassandra Turner  Sullivan; siblings, Louise Dolson, Mayhew Turner,  Johnsie Turner, Sarah Jean Rucker,  Betty Bailey,  Paul Turner, and Phyllis  Turner.
