Rita Swales

The Rita Swales Tribute fund

Friends & Family,
On the passing of Rita Swales, wife to Michael, Mother to Christopher and Andrew, Sister to Robert and Daughter of Jessie we decided to set up this tribute fund to help others fighting all forms of Cancer.
We all have very fond memories of this amazing woman who will be in our hearts forever.

We would love for you to share your thoughts, feelings, photos and fondest memories of Rita here so friends and family can all share in our memories.
.

She was taken from us too soon,
Loved by all
and will be missed by so many.
