Rita May Weidmann 24.05.1929 – 25.07.2020

Early on a Saturday morning of a weekend where all three of her children were already scheduled to come to spend time with her, Rita quietly departed from her long life of 91 years. By her own admission it was a very fulfilling and rewarding life. Her wide range of interests included the natural world, wildlife research and observation, gardening, a love of classical music, and particularly the realm of education where she used her knowledge of the physical world and spiritual science (anthroposophy) to educate many children in a large variety of different subjects.

Rita loved people and was always interested in other people’s lives (and their pets’ lives). She felt a strong need to be helpful to others and was at her happiest surrounded by large groups of friends.
