Reita hired me for the FDIC in 1978 and was my supervisor (poor thing) for many years. I learned many things from her such as workplace ethics and that hard work can pay off. I just returned to Atlanta after 18 years in DC and had been thinking of Reita often. I'm so sad to hear of her passing and I'll keep her loved ones in my thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Reita was a very sweet lady. She always welcomed the family with open arms and touched everyone hearts with how kind and loving she could be. She was a loving and caring wife to Uncle Bob until the day he died. When I think about all the Labor Day family reunions at Fluer de Lac Lane, I will think of Aunt Reita and her smile.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Reita was a wonderful wife to my Uncle, Robert Babb and we are comforted in knowing she has once again joined him.
