Rita C. Ladd, 79, of Spring Hill, joined her heavenly father April 29, 2021. She is survived by loving partner, Richard Rooney, Jr., daughter, Pat Laterza and her husband, Bob Cook, son, Brian King and his wife, Deanna, grandsons, Michael, Matthew, Sean, and Scott, great-grandchildren, Megan and Jack. Pita will truly be missed by her family and friends. May she rest in peace. God saw you were getting tired And a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you And whispered “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
