Rita Bernice Fields, 73, passed away on October 22, 2022, in Saratoga Springs, UT.

Rita was born on November 29, 1948 in Cardston, Alberta to Reed Pitcher and Bernice Leishman Pitcher.

Rita married Roger Fields September 5, 1967 in the Cardston Alberta Temple for time and all eternity. Together they raised a family based on the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rita loved her family and her faith. She loved serving others and served in many positions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Rita especially loved attending and cheering on her children, and later on, her grandchildren at sporting events, art competitions, and plays. She enjoyed knitting hats and she gave hundreds of them to her family, friends and a local soup kitchen. Always a lover of sweets, Rita was an avid supporter of dessert before dinner! Horsefly, B.C. was the perfect place on earth for Rita to raise a family! She used nature to teach her children strong values, problem solving skills, and the the ability to care for themselves & others. Rita taught many by her example to work hard, give service, and love the Lord!
