It is with great sadness that I forward the message below. Rita was such a wonderful vivacious lady loved by all who knew her. Spunky, spirited, a fierce advocate, loyal friend, and defender of those marginalized. Dr. Rita Robinson will be greatly missed but we know she is at Peace. To be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord! We rejoice through our sadness as we continue praying for her family.
