Rita Emberson, 76 of Wesley Chapel, passed away on Friday, November 11, 2022. She was born in Ohio and moved to Florida from Louisville in 1976. Rita was an exceptional lady which was reflected in her career as a Registered Nurse specializing in wound care. Rita had a huge heart and donated to many animal help organizations and took in many strays. She was independent and loved nature, gardening and her Catholic faith. She was a member of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church where she belonged to many groups and organizations; Rita was strong, compassionate, and philanthropic. Her love and caring knew no bounds.
Ms. Rita is survived by her loving son, Michael Morris and his partner, Lisa Wilson; 1 granddaughter, Malaya; her cousins, Glenn (Donna) Renninger, Rhonda Renninger, Don Rooks and Laura Rooks and their families. Also surviving are many friends, colleagues, and church friends too numerous to mention.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her memory to Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church or any animal rescue group…she would love that.
