Ms. Rita Attis, 93, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday evening, February 23, 2017. She transitioned to be with the Lord in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loving family. Rita was born on March 9, 1923 in Trouin, Haiti to the late Joseph Atti and Orizane Milord. She grew up in Petion-ville, Haiti. In her early years, Rita was a talented seamstress, who was known for her lovely, elegant, and beautifully crafted designs. She made her journey to the U.S. in 1988 to be with her beloved children.
