Our condolences to Charlene and the rest of the family. What we will always remember about Aunt Rita is her bright smile. The last of the Breyer siblings, Aunt Rita was always there for her brothers and sisters. Uncle Charles, Charlene, her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren were the loves of her life. Rest in peace Aunt Rita we will miss you.
Mrs. Dunn, as I will always think if her, was a wonderful woman and a surrogate grandmother to me. She and her sisters looked after me and spent time with me many times over the years when I lived on Holly Road. I will always remember and love her.
I know she will be missed greatly by many friends and family.
