I am the daughter of Ada 0ster Maiers and her sister was Mildred Oster Garland, Rita’s mother. Rita was my cousin. I would like to extend my sympathies to Karen and Gail as well as Rita’s children and grandchildren. My memories of Rita was that she was one of the funniest people around!! She and my mother shared humor. God be with each of you during this time
