I remember being a little girl and going on our annual shopping trips to Brown County with a bunch of us girls. That would be the highlight of every fall for me.My mother, Linda told me about a time on our way back home from our annual trip when I was 4 years old, I sat right next to Aunt Rite and didnt stop talking to her the entire time, until we made it home. My mom said it was so sweet because Aunt Rite loved it because we carried hours of conversation and I was a shy girl but not that day to her. She was always so sweet and welcoming and I will miss her dearly. I promise I'll watch out and spend as much time as I can with your appleseed sister's, Margie and Ceil. I love you Aunt Rite ill miss playing at your beautiful house with my sister, brother and cousin Chelsea. Thank you for always being so nice to me. I see you beautifully in my mind and I hope youre having the time of your life right now with Donna in Heaven. Rest Beautifully.

Aunt Rite wow what a cook. Thank you for the great meals over the years you shared with our family. As a kid I always enjoyed coming out there walking the creek and playing in the barn. You are going to be missed until we see you again. Go rest in paradise and enjoy God's meals with Donna. We love you!

I have fond memories of visiting Aunt Rite’s farm house for different holiday celebrations. Whenever we would drive out to her house it was like heading to a new world. The beautiful woods, creeks, and animals that surrounded the home filled me with happiness and light. She was always so sweet and kind. My siblings and I would love to explore the rooms in the house and all of the antiques she had. Sending love to all of her family and friends.

I will always remember visiting Aunt Rite's farmhouse. It was usually for Easter. I always loved the way the old barn smelled, and walking down by the creek. I was infatuated with the different rooms in her house and the hallways. I loved the porcelain dolls of the farmer and wife that sat on the little chairs. Aunt Rite always made sure she asked me how I was and what was new in my life. She would always tell me that I was growing up so big. I'm going to miss her and my heart goes out to her sister, my grandmother, Marge Carter and also her other sister, Ceil. The Appleseed Sisters.
