Beloved wife, mother, sister and friend, Rita G. Scranton, 57, of Spirit Lake, Idaho peacefully passed away on July 19, 2022. Rita was born on July 10, 1965; the daughter of Cletus and Pauline (Burton) Trueblood.
Rita grew up in Burley, Idaho as well as Indianapolis, Indiana. In her earlier years, she loved serving people as a waitress. Being the loving and caring person that she was, she later rededicated her life to becoming a full-time caregiver.
In her spare time, she felt a sense of comfort when she would go fishing, gardening, crocheting. She often felt that camping was too much work, but still loved being in the outdoors. Truly being a giving person, she also loved making things for her family and friends and seeing the joy it brought to them.
Rita is survived by her loving husband, Thomas; her wonderful children, Dustin Gosman, Eli Gosman, Jeremiah Gosman (Stormy Streets), and Jonathan Jones; her grandchildren, Emily Gosman, Autumn Gosman, Talor J. Miller, Miyah Gosman, and Reece Gosman; her sisters, Cathy (Kevin) Colbert, Deana Trueblood, Tina (Angel) Huerta, Misty (Tony) Chapa, Torri (Larry) Child, and Angie Trueblood.
A memorial service will be held on July 28, 2022 at 11 a.m. at Bell Tower Funeral Home: 3398 E. Jenalan Ave., Post Falls, Idaho 83854.
Rita was loved by so many and will be greatly missed. May she rest in eternal peace.
