Jillian Ede has communicated that Rita has passed and adds this:-

'Rita started flying with Caledonian and then joined BA in around 1975. She flew on long haul as a Purser on 747’s until cancer treatment forced her to transfer to short haul.

'She reluctantly took ill health retirement before her 55th Birthday and never a day passed without her wistfully looking up at passing aircraft.

'I don’t at the moment have details of her funeral She never married but her brother, who lives in South Africa, wishes to attend her funeral which will take place near her home in Marlow....'

...and this from Jill:-

"The funeral will be at 2pm on Wednesday 28th February at All Saints Church in Marlow.

I will accompany Rita on her ‘final sector’ to the crematorium. For everyone else, afternoon tea will be served at the Compleat Angler across the river in Marlow.

I shall be easy to spot as I’ll be in current BA uniform,(without hat), as per Rita’s instructions!"
