Rita R. Sullivan

Rita Rose Sullivan, 61, of Fredericksburg passed away Thursday, April 18, 2013.

Rita's passion in life was her family; she loved her children and grandchildren fiercely and unconditionally. Not one of her family members had a person more devotedly in their corner than "Grandma." She attended too many sporting events over the years to count and was undoubtedly the loudest fan at every single event. Rita was a devoted wife of 41 years, a dependable and loving mother and a doting grandmother. No one ever spent a minute around her that didn't involve cracking a joke, bragging about her talented grandkids, or telling a story about something cute one of her kids or grandkids had done. Family was her reason for living life each day.

In true Rita fashion, she fought a strong fight until her last breath. When the end came she left this world surrounded by her family and a smile left on her face by the one person who could always put it there, "Michael Honey." Rita will be sorely missed but never forgotten as her memory will live on in her family's heart.

Survivors include her husband, Mike Sullivan; children Eric Sullivan, Joe Sullivan, Carey Shea, Cessy Mallory, Libby Heily and Angie Ramsey; brothers Albert Bresch and Ray Hess; sisters Janice Bresch, Brenda Bresch, Michelle Bresch, Jacki Kimmel and Rosemary Bresch; grandchildren Brianna Sullivan, Alexandra Sullivan, Chase Sullivan, Ccelsie Sullivan, Brian Steele, Emily Sullivan, Patrick Sullivan, Cooper Mallory, Tyson Mallory, Nikki Deering, Cody Shea, Blake Shaw and Brandon Shea; and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. Burial will be private.
