We were saddened to receive the news that Rita lost her battle with cancer today. Rita started her battle in 2012 and fought long and hard all these years and went into Hospice a couple of weeks ago. Her husband James has been by her side as well as the children and the grandchildren and the stress brought James down and into the hospital and a couple of stents were put in. They both have had their battles through the years.
They are a very loving, dedicated and devoted family and were always thankful for their blessings and the time they shared together. There have been many miles traveled thru the years from their original home in Texas to their current residence in Franklinton, NC. May God grant them everything they need to get through this difficult time. I am sure Jud and Joellen Ammons will greet her with open arms and continue to watch over all of us.
Jud and James were partners and friends for years. Their Surefoot Beagles were a force to reckon with and they had a lot of success and many Field Champions. Their families worked together in numerous areas and you couldn't ask for better people or friends.
Rita was a devoted wife, best friend, love of James life, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and very dear friend to so many. James and Rita were married for over 40+ years. The love, dedication, devotion, friendship, lessons shared spilled over into all areas. Her smile and love would light up a room and she shared that with so many. She fought the cancer with all she could and for as long as she could til God brought her home. I am sure Rita would want to tell her kids...
James, the children and grandchildren, siblings and friends would like to say
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. The pain and suffering is over for our precious Rita. Hold onto the many cherished memories through the years and she will forever be in all of our hearts. She will continue to watch over all of you and will walk by your sides.
