Born on February 25, 1954, in Milford, Delaware, she was a daughter to Mary Ann Rust Terry and the late Leonard Terry. Rita grew up in Delaware and gradated from High School there. She married the love of her life, Edward D. Pearson on October 14, 1971 and together they were blessed by God with three children and many grandchildren. She was a devoted wife, great mother, grandmother, and a wonderful home maker. Rita did help support her family as she went to work as a bus driver for the Amory School District for 28 years. She loved children and was very patriotic. She believed in God and she was Methodist. Rita put others before herself and her family meant the world to her. She and her husband Edward liked to travel and see parts of the country they hadn’t explored yet. Country music was her favorite to listen to while doing chores around the house. Over the years, she and her family members made many memories which will be treasured. Rita’s presence will be dearly missed by her family and friends. She had a big influence on many lives through the years as she shuttled so many children everyday. Her family and friends are at peace knowing she is no longer hurting or struggling and she is in the holy presence of the Lord. She is survived by her husband, Edward D.
