Rita Carol Baisden

1951 ~ 2022 (age 70)


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Rita Carol Baisden, daughter of David and Catherine Baisden. She passed away at the age of 70 on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

Funeral Services honoring Rita’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at Rose-Neath Funeral Home, 1815 Marshall Street, Shreveport, Louisiana. A visitation will be held for family and friends Tuesday, March 15, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial will immediately follow the funeral service in Forest Park West Cemetery, 4000 Meriwether Road, Shreveport, Louisiana.

Rita was born on June 5, 1951 in West Virginia, and lived much of her life in Chicago, Illinois before retiring to Shreveport, Louisiana.

Rita was a woman of God who lived her life in the way that her Lord commanded.

Rita was very selfless. She loved all of her family dearly. Chances are when you graduated high school Rita was there to celebrate with you. If you lived out of town, Rita brought us all to visit you. If you got married, Rita was at your wedding. Sometimes, maybe she couldn’t be there, but she genuinely tried for everyone. If you were near by her, she would always remember to get you a Christmas present, birthday present, and even an Easter present. Even when she had very little to give, she would always find a way to give. This type of stuff is how Rita showed you her love. She went the extra mile.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Danny Ray and Jimmie.

She is survived by her brother, Earl; sisters, Davida, Kathy Sue, Jeannie and Colleen; nieces and nephews, Lisa, Dreama, Tyrone, Brian, Tammy, Angela, Katie, Johnathan, Britney, David, Brandon, Miranda, Sheena, MaLeena, Joshua, Tabetha, Kaylie, Gillian and Danny Ray; as well as her great-nieces and great-nephews and many other family members who loved her dearly.
