Rita L. Rodriquez of Riverview, FL was born on May 29, 1939 in New York, NY & was a long time resident of Ybor City’s section of Tampa, FL. She left us to her eternal rest on May 30, 2020 at 81 years of age. She was preceded in death by her parents Antonia Gurney & Manuel Rodriguez. She is survived by her sons, Steven M. Cueto & Christian P. Guerra both of Tampa, her like-a-sister Eulie G. Leto (Frank), her three God-Daughter’s Dominique G. Parise (Joe), Chantel M. Vazquez (Jennifer), Danielle McKinnon & also many cousins & dear friends that she considered more like family. She was a beautiful person inside & out. She knew what she wanted & wasn’t afraid to tell you. She was strong but tender at heart. She spent great detail in packing & wrapping things. You knew when she walked into a room because her signature scent of perfume would surround her. She will be truly missed by all who knew & loved her. We each have our Rita stories & memories. These are moments that we will forever cherish so she will never be too far away from us. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date where we can gather, eat & share these memories together.
