When Rita wasn't working outside the house, she was a housewife and one heck of a cook. She couldn't boil water without burning it when she married Rayburn, but he quickly showed her the ropes. She especially enjoyed cooking big meals for the family during the holidays and special occasions; her Pecan Pie was nearly world famous. Rita enjoyed traveling, reading, hunting and fishing. She was a talented artist as well. Rita gifted many of her painting projects to family and friends over the years. She enjoyed watching sports with Rayburn and rooting for the Oilers, Texans, Astros and watching NASCAR. Rita frequently enjoyed teaching Sunday school and was a member of the First Baptist Church of New Caney.
