The old adage, “the world is my oyster” could not be more appropriate for Rita. She traveled many roads, met many people and showed the wisdom and confidence of a seasoned road warrior. Along her journey her passion for cooking was influenced by the cultures she encountered. Meticulously writing recipes down she committed her ideas to paper and became a published author by releasing two cookbooks.
Rita was preceded by her husband, Stu Pritchard; her parents; granddaughter and brother, John Anselmo.
Rita’s memory will be cherished by her sons, Guy Pritchard and wife, Glenda of Amarillo, TX; Stuart Pritchard and wife, Lois of Newport, OR; Kim Pritchard and wife, Helen of Roswell, NM; 7 grandchildren, Cory, Coby, Stephen, Victoria, Elizabeth, Erin and Evan; 4 great-grandchildren, Sean, Hannah, Hayley, Harper and brother, Frances Minahen.
