Rita Watkins dies in Fort PierceMar 10, 2014 by Guest Writer
There will be a gathering to celebrate the life of Rita Watkins on March 11 from 5-7 p.m. at Bimini Boatyard, 1557 SE 17th Street, Ft. Lauderdale (33316).
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.
