She is survived by her children Robert Metcalf (Deray), Timothy Metcalf, Rocky Metcalf, and Kristi Wardlaw (Jeremy); her grandchildren, Destiny, Davon, Davanna Wardlaw, Kelsey, Colton, Draysun, and Memphis Metcalf, and Juliette Mergel; her loving sisters, Linda Anderson (Mark) and Gail Welch (Ramona); and great nephews, Dillon and Damion Lark.

Rita loved life and those around her. She had a spontaneous streak, but her calendar alway had Bingo and the race track on it. Rita inherited her love for Bingo from her Dad. The race track was something she picked up along the way, but she tried to pass her love of the races down to her grandchildren. Rita also loved grilling out and going to the park with her kids and grandchildren. She kept extra busy during the fall watching her Gamecocks play football. She will be missed by all who knew her.
