Rita Brockbank

( April 22, 1938 - September 23, 2016 )

Rita Frances Brockbank, 78 years of age and a resident of Natchitoches, passed away September 23, 2016. Originally from California, Rita was born April 22, 1938. She earned a Masters Plus from the University of Arizona in education. She spent her life shaping and teaching young minds in Texas, Louisiana and Arizona ultimately retiring from each of the three states. A vivacious reader, she continually was a student at heart. Traveling with friends was one of her greatest pleasures; she visited many countries and learned about cultures all around the world. Anyone that knew Rita knew she enjoyed having a good time and was always the life of the party. She was preceded in death by her mother Helen Lawler and father Francis Martin and her daughter, Laura Sullivan Reeves. She is survived by her granddaughter Aimee Stockham (Sam) and grandson Sean John, both of Phoenix, Arizona and her great grandchildren Andrea Kelly, Sidney Stockham and James Stockham all of Phoenix. She will be dearly missed but never forgotten by those closest to her. A private memorial will be held at the Samuel Guy House at a later date.
