Mark A. Schneider Funeral Home

On Oct. 30, 2014 God called Rita Mae Comer back home after a brave battle with cancer. Those she left behind to cherish her memory are her mother Lela Hillis of New Port Richey, FL her two children Dana L. Comer and James Comer, five grandchildren and sister Becky Smith of Twin Peaks, Colorado to rest on the eternal shores.

She spent her life caring for the old and sick as a nurse to many. Rita loved her black and white movies and of course Elvis. She will be loved and missed by all; we love and miss you very much mom.
