What can I say but Ruth Schnitzer couldn't have said it any better. I too met Rita 45 years ago as she was the best manager in Dr. Kassel, Dr. Myerhoff and we can't forget Dr. Kerzner's office. It was one of my first jobs in the medical field. She made it a very happy place to be part of. I remember her smile and great disposition. We lost a very special woman too early in life. Rob and I give all of her family members our sincere condolences. May she rest in peace without any pain anymore.

Linda and Elliot I was saddened when I got the phone call today from you today. Rita and I grew up together so I've know her for many mdy years. Rita always looked out for her family and friends and loved each one unconditionally. The one thing she loved to do was work and was a hard working girl.

Even though we were ex sister-in-laws so always said you are still my sister-in-law. I will cherish the times we had at her house at the beach. she said this was her happy place. Rita you will truly be missed by all. Rest in Peace
Love You

Dear Linda, Elliott and Family,

So shocking to hear of the passing of Rita. I met Rita 45 years ago when she hired me to work for Dr. Kassel, Dr. Himmelfarb and Dr. Kerzner and Sinai Hospital for the Department of Ambulatory Medicine.
We became friends immediately. Rita was the Office Manager and was very caring and bright and ran a
tight efficient ship. We also became part of each other’s family sharing good times and bad. Rita was
generous beyond words. She would give you her last dime if you needed it. Her family was everything
to her. May all the wonderful memories you have of Rita be a living memorial to her. May her memory be for a blessing and may she RIP.
