Marita "Rita" Evans, 74, passed away Thursday, June 13, 2013 at her home. She was born September 26, 1938 in Battle Creek, the daughter of Otto and Florella (Green) Sult. She married Merle Evans on February 14, 1996 in Battle Creek. Rita worked 28 years as a social worker in long-term care facilities. She had a passion for the elderly and was diligent to insure her residents were given loving, quality care. Rita was a long time member of the Eagle's Lodge. For years she was in charge of running the kitchen for events, coordinating funeral dinners, and fund raising as well as donating her time for whatever else was needed.

Rita spent countless hours in the kitchen making dishes and pies for every occasion. Rita's genuinely kind spirit left a mark on every person she came in contact with. She will be greatly missed.
