Rita was born on March 8, 1930 to Orville and Elva Crabtree. Originally from Oak Hill, Ohio, Rita moved to Marion after she married the love of her life, Ronald Myers, in 1964. 

Rita devoted her life to those in need of someone with her caring nature. She was a nurses aide and dietitian at the Marion County Home for several years. 

Her kind and caring soul will always be remembered by her family and friends. She treated everyone she met like they were her children.

Her family was her everything and she made sure they knew it. 

Preceding Rita in death are her parents, her brothers Blair and Myron Crabtree, and her children Linda, Michael, and Terry Wahley, as well as Kevin Newman, whom she raised as one of her own. 

Left to cherish her memories are her sisters Joan Brown and Vesta Christian, and children Billy Wahley, Theresa Gardener, Larry Wahley, and Elaine Newman. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren, and numerous great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and great-great-great grandchildren.
