LECKIE (ANAWALT), W.Va. — Rita Arlene Sadler, 66, of Leckie (Anawalt), W.Va., passed away at Riverview Nursing Home in Rich Creek, Va., on Tuesday April 2, 2013. Born with Cerebral Palsy in Leckie on March 21, 1947, Rita was never able to enjoy the activities most of us took for granted but she always had a smile on her face. It took very little to make her happy.

Rita was home schooled by school teacher cousin Mamie O’Brian Cooper and was able to read and write even though she couldn’t speak normally. She spent the last 27 1/2 years of her life under the very good and capable care of the staff at Riverview Nursing Home in Rich Creek, Va.
Funeral services will be Saturday April 6 at 1 p.m. at Cravens-Shires Funeral Home in Bluewell, W.Va., with Donald Farmer Jr. officiating. Interment will be at Grandview Memorial Gardens in Bluefield, Va., with family and friends serving as pallbearers.
