From Legacy.com:

Rita Lillian Watkins

Rita was born April 15, 1942 in Newbridge, S. Wales and died at her home in Fort Pierce on February 23, 2014. After teaching in England and Spain Rita’s adventurous spirit led her through Europe, the Caribbean and Bahamas, eventually settling in Ft. Lauderdale where she worked for many years in the yachting industry. Rita’s wit, wisdom and laughter will be sorely missed by so many, too numerous to mention by name but including family and friends in Wales, England, Australia, New Zealand, Bali, her extended Fort Pierce and Fort Lauderdale families, New England and elsewhere. Noson dda annwyl Rita. We love you.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to one of the following: Treasure Coast Hospice; Heathcote Botanical Gardens; United for Animals.
