In Loving Memory of Rita Corbett?
Who was Rita Corbett?
Rita was a Summerville resident, a member of the Carolina One Real Estate family, and a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, where she served on the vestry. She also served on the Board of Directors for the Francis Willis SPCA and was a volunteer and marathon participant for the Leukemia Foundation. She was the Treasurer of the Summerville Garden Club and was involved with the Charleston Basket Brigade, as well as many other local charitable organizations over the years.
These accolades, however, don’t come close to who Rita really was. Rita was an outgoing woman who would give her last cent to whomever needed it. She had a love for her fellow man that is rare. She gifted all those around her with her bubbly personality, absolutely radiant smile, and Godly spirit. She lifted everyone up, while never burdening another person, even when her pain was overwhelming. Rita was one of those angels on earth whom we rarely get to meet. What a privilege it was to have been called her friend and to have worked with her. We at Carolina One, and especially at the office on Main Street in Summerville, will be better for knowing her and will miss her very much.

She would say, “…and when I was hungry, you fed me…”
