Rita Stalter of Fayetteville, N.C. and a former long-time resident of Walden passed away on Tuesday July 28, 2020. Born on September 8, 1942, she was 77 years old.
Our dearest mama, you were unlike any other grandmas as you lived for all your children, each generation. It was always about the children from yours to theirs to the great-grandchildren. All of us have lived with you for periods of time. It wasn't just a weekend at grandma and grandpa's as a visit, it was always at mama and pa's. You were parents to all of us and so deeply missed; the glue to our family and our favorite memories. There were never any favorites, it was ALL, always everyone together all the time, never separated. You and your mashed potatoes brought us together. We love you with all our hearts, may you rest in peace with Connie (mom) and Pop.
