One thought on “Rita A. Scott

  1. Rita was my cousin and godmother.She was always cheerful and kind to me and kept me updated about the family which was very much appreciated since I lived out of state and wasn’t sure who was still in Oswego. The last time I saw her was in 1998 when my brother was ill and she called her sisters to let them know I was visiting and she wanted them there for lunch for a get together. This was typical of the way she was like her mother and it made me feel like I was back home again. I regret not getting back to Oswego since then to see her and will miss her very much. Tommy and Laurel my family and I feel your loss and will pray for all of you.Love, Louise
