This weekend, I was saddened to learn that Rita (Rista12 on this forum) passed on in February. Rita was a regular contributor to our "Something for the weekend" challenge threads and, at 94 years, showed us that creativity has no age limits.
I've added links to some of Rita's posts below but I'm sure those that followed her contributions will have their own favourites to remember.
Rest in peace Rita.
Oh dear, very sorry to hear that Dave, Rita's posts on Something for the Weekend were inspirational.
I'm sad to hear this news about Rita (@Rista12) Dave, and thank you for letting us know. I've enjoyed her creative art and gentle comments over the past few years of the Photoshop Challenges, and had been in touch with her by PM a few times. I've just spent some time looking at her past work in remembrance of her. She was an inspiration and I'll miss her.
For those new to the forums who come across this, click on Rista's name to see links to all her posts.
Thank you very much for sharing, Dave.
I have only known Rita through Something for the Weekend, where each and every post of hers will always remain pure pleasure.
Very sad news indeed. May she rest in peace. My condolences to her family and friends.
Thank you for letting us know, Dave.
I would love to know more about Rita. Where she lived, and what her interests were? When we pass we live on in the memories of the people who knew us, and while we loved having Rita in our wee family of SFTW contributors (from her profile her posts to the SFTW threads were the only forum post she made) we knew so little about her.
We knew she was a digital surgeon and talented illustrator
We knew that at 94 she still had romance in her heart
And we knew she had a sense of humour (even if we didn't know the context (her age being 94))
RIP Rita. Gone but not forgotten.
