Memorial Service for Rita Flood
Rita Flood Memorial Order of Service
Rita Flood was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and lived most of her adult life in Lansing, Illinois, with her husband of 65 years, Ralph. She moved to St. Paul in 2009 to be near her daughter Rebecca and daughter-in-law Ruth MacKenzie. When Rebecca brought Rita to Unity Church, she loved the open hearted welcome she received and quickly became a pledging friend of the church and a member of the Heritage Society, because that’s just what you do. A memorial will be held in the Sanctuary at Unity Church on Friday, March 31, at 2:00 p.m., and via livestream.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Unity Church-Unitarian or the Communication Center Fund State Services for the Blind.
