Rita Phyllis GlassmanJanuary 29, 1945 ~ November 29, 2017 (age 72)
Rita Phyllis Glassman 72 of Coral Gables passed away November 29, 2017.
Smart, funny, vibrant, beautiful, meticulous, joyful, fun loving, always up for a party, lover of red wine and great cosmos that she mixed....Rita left us far too early. Born January 29, 1945 in Brooklyn, NY to Shirley and Sid Greenberg, Rita and family moved to Miami in 1950. She loved swimming as a kid, tennis and bowling as a teenager and golf later in life. She excelled in sports but most enjoyed her golf at Deering Bay in Coral Gables and her cooler weather summers in the Berkshires.
She traveled all over in her business of public relations and especially enjoyed her many trips to the Caribbean. She was a generous and warm hearted person with a great sense of humor. We were shocked when we learned Rita had an incurable illness, as she was the picture of great health! We tried to beat it but the disease beat us!
She leaves behind many shocked and loving friends and family and a devoted and devastated spouse, Sheryl Rosenfield, who is grateful that they had 34 plus years together, but hurts knowing that Rita did not have many, many more years to enjoy her life! Special thanks to our close friends/family who were there for Us thru the worst of times. We will be creating a charitable foundation in 2018 to continue to support the many charities Rita believed in.
David C. Gross Funeral Home, Central Avenue Chapel in St. Petersburg is serving the family.
