Rita Kay Johnston, age 78, of Cape Fair, Missouri, passed away July 14, 2021, with family near her bedside. She entered this life February 26, 1943, in Hannibal, Missouri, the daughter of Richard and Florence (Welch) Arnett. Preceding her in death are her parents and two sisters: Debbie and Carolyn Arnett. She was joined in marriage in August 1958 to Harry Edward Johnston.

Having a passion for the water, Rita could be found boating, fishing, or swimming. She had an eye for beauty and took great care of her flower beds, arts, and crafts. Rita invested many hours in flea markets and collecting knick-knacks. It can be said with confidence that Rita loved her family and many memories have been made to remind us of the love she shared. She will be dearly missed.

Rita is survived by her husband of 63 years, Harry Johnston; three sons: Robbie Johnston of Quincy, Illinois; Bradley (Lisa) Johnston of Canton, Missouri; and Richard (Ann) Johnston of Fowler, Illinois; five grandchildren: Cody, Jessica, Alex, Brandy, and Shawn (Amber); two great-grandchildren: Greyson and Preston; and a sister, Vicky Harness of Quincy, Illinois.

A celebration of life will be planned for a later time in Illinois. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com
