Message: I came to know Rita through my five years working in the curatorial department at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. I thoroughly enjoyed our regular discussions about the latest exhibitions or goings on in the art world. I will miss her warm and genuine personality and her knowledge and passion for the arts.

Message: I so admired Rita for all she was and did. As a colleague on the Docent Council, I admired her for her intelligence, hard work, and friendship. She was indeed a special person to me and I have a special memory of her reaching out to me when I was a new docent, inviting me to have lunch with her, which made me feel welcomed in the midst of more experienced docents.I regret I cannot come to her service tomorrow, but I will be thinking of her.

Message: My deepest sympathy to Rita's family. Rita was a good friend, confident, knowledgeable, committed, and generous with her ideas.She will be remembered by her fellow docents for her extensive research for each art work that she shared with us. She gave so much to the museum of her time, intelligence and support. I will especially remember her discussion of Caravaggio and Isabel Bishop. She brought us into the works of art. Besides the docent corps, Rita worked with me and was also so committed to the Decorative Arts Council and the library at the museum. She has left a lasting impact. Rita will be deeply missed by all of us. She was very special. With deep condolences to her family. Laura Harris

Message: Even though I did not know Rita very well, my memory of her goes way back. We shared a great love for opera and art, particularly the Wadsworth Atheneum. She was a wonderful person and talking to her was always stimulating. The last time I saw her was at the movies in Manchester watching a live transmission from the Metropolitan Opera last Fall. She will be greatly missed by many. My condolences to her family Sybille Brewer
