Rita Allen Mueller, age 73, died peacefully on June 7, 2017 at home in Wimberley Texas after a long battle with breast cancer. Moving to Corpus Christi at a young age, her education was completed at Del Mar College and James R. Dougherty School of Nursing. As a registered nurse for almost 40 years, Rita felt fortunate to have her passion and calling become her career. She loved her years in the emergency room and hospice. Retiring from nursing, Rita moved with her friend Jan Birchall to Wimberley and enjoyed raising beautiful show dogs.
Rita was preceded in death by her parents, Chester (Chatter) and Grace Allen and her daughter in law Cassie Mueller. She is survived by her brother Chester, sons Chuck and Mark (Alicia), and her beloved grandchildren Rivers, Reece, and Cadence.
Rita has requested no funeral or service, but asks her family and friends to eat good food, drink wine, laugh, and tell some Rita stories.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Kindred Hospice, Wimberley Adoption Group, or to a charity of choice are appreciated.
