Rita Agnes (Gallagher) Gaul

June 21, 1932 ~ November 27, 2021 (age 89)


On November 27, 2021, Rita Gaul was received into the loving arms of Jesus. Rita was 89 years old and the wonderful mother of five children, 14 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren. Rita raised her family in a cozy beach neighborhood in Milford, Connecticut where she truly enjoyed hosting large outdoor barbecues with her many family members and friends and tending her rose garden. Rita worked as a Secretary and Office Manager of the family business, Gaul Construction, and was a faithful member of Berean Assembly of God Church in Milford. Upon retiring, Rita and her husband Bill moved to Port Charlotte, Florida where she made many forever friends. Rita was involved with a music ministry in her church. She loved singing in the choir and hosting Bible studies in her home. Rita traveled with her church to Jamaica to assist in the building project for housing orphan children. Rita loved to spend her time quilting and crafting. More than anything Rita loved her family and her friends. Her teachings of love kindness and integrity will be kept with us forever. She will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts.
