Obituary For Rita Moser Willis
Mrs. Rita Moser Willis, 69, a resident of Raleigh, NC, formerly of Colfax, NC, passed away peacefully in her home November 30, 2021.
A native of Alamance County, Rita graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Master’s degree in Education and Mathematics. For the majority of her career, she taught 8th grade algebra at Northwest Guilford Middle School. Following retirement, she was an algebra professor at Greensboro College.
She was a member of Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church. She loved her family and thrived on being a grandmother (aka "ReRe"). She loved her friends, her dogs, gardening, crocheting, kayaking, and nature watching. She was a born caregiver by nature and she was loved by all.
Rita is survived by her husband of 41 years, David Willis; her son, Jonathan Willis (Christy); her grandchildren, Harker Leigh and Johnny Willis; her brother, Steve Moser; and nieces, Amber Murphy (Kevin and Adalyn) and Brittney Moody (Joey).

A Memorial Service celebrating her life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 4, 2021, at Bay Leaf Baptist Church, 12200 Bayleaf Church Rd, Raleigh, NC. The family will receive friends at the church before the service at 10:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Alamance County Hospice, and there is a special request from Rita to hug a loved one and tell them how special they are to you.
