As a former RN at Eastern Oregon Hospital, later BMRC, I knew of Gita and her caring work with clients, long before I ever was employed. She was an energetic, and fun person and will be remembered by many. My thoughts and prayers will be for Barbara and other family I did not know. I enjoyed working with Geta for at least 20 years, Rest in peace sister.
