Rita Mae Dennehy Bradford

BRADFORD, , RITA MAE DENNEHY Rita was born on the Irish Ridge outside of
Talty, Texas on June 1, 1923. She was the fifth of six children born to John
and Mary Ann Higgins Dennehy who both immigrated from Ireland. She passed
from this life on May 14, 2005 in Dallas, TX after a brave three and a half
year battle with breast cancer. Preceded in death by husband Bill and
daughter Elaine Bradford Gardner, Rita is survived by her son and
daughter-in-law, David and Sharen Bradford, grandson David Gardner, his wife
Vangie and her great grand son Ridley, son-in-law Keith Gardner, brother
Jack Dennehy, sister Teresa Harwood and a host of loving nieces and nephews.
A devoted mother, Rita will always be remembered for her gentle loving
spirit. We will miss her perky talkative personality, her wry sense of humor
and above all her laughter. Many thanks to Dr. Barry Brooks and staff at
Texas Oncology for their kind, compassionate care. The family will receive
friends for visitation at Grove Hill Funeral Home, 3920 Samuell Blvd.,
Dallas,TX 214-388-8887 on Tuesday, May 17th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00p.m. A
graveside service will follow at 2 p.m. with a wake in celebration of Rita's
life to follow at her home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the
Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or the American Cancer Society.
