Rita Streed

October 5, 1925 - December 17, 2016

Rita Murdock Streed was born Rita Grace Murdock on October 5, 1925 in New Mexico to Roy and Gladys Murdock. She became a doting big sister to James and Charles, and was known as “Sis” to her family.


Rita enjoyed helping children in the Little Lake School District, volunteering with the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Santa Fe High School Band, sewing for her family and community groups, and helping in countless other local activities.


A celebration of her inspirational life is planned on January 21, 2017 at 11:00 AM, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 11507 Studebaker Road in Norwalk, where Rita was extremely active as a member for 63 years. In lieu of flowers, donations to the children of Trinity Christian School in her honor and memory would be appreciated. Children were always her priority, and as she was fond of saying, “Everyone is a teacher.”
