Rita Faye Johnston, age 91, of Corsicana passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at Epic Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center surrounded by her loving family. She was born on December 14, 1927 in Corsicana to Jack D. Kent and Lela Carroll Kent.
Rita Faye retired from Falcon Industries after working there for over 30 years as a supervisor. She was an avid sports fan and classic movie lover. She was known to have three televisions going in one room all at the same time, just so she could watch the Texas Rangers, the Dallas Cowboys, and Turner Movie Classics and keeping up with all three at once. Let’s not forget her love for the Texas Longhorns. She watched them too. She loved fishing for catfish and most of all spending time with her family at the lake. Her family not only included her biological family, but her church family at Mildred Baptist Church and her nursing home family at Epic.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Beverly Gullatt; her daughter-in-law Sandra Johnston; her grandson-in-law Bobby Pryor and her great-grandson Eric Pryor. Rita Faye is survived by her children; Jack Johnston; Bobby Johnston and wife Patti; and David Johnston and wife Kim; eight grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews.
Visitation with the family will be held on Monday, July 8, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Corley Funeral Home. Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at 10:00 AM at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Tony Neal officiating. Burial will follow at Resthaven Memorial Park in Corsicana. Serving as pallbearers will be Barney Jones, Adam Pryor, Mike Ford, Jim Bell, Carl Stough and Stephen Bell.

Her family lives around lake halbert and aunt Rita took me, Dianne Johnston, a whole bunch of us to the spillway by her parents house to fish. Some of the best memories! RIP Aunt Rita. ❤️🌹

I worked with Rita for many years at Falcon Business Forms. She was a fun loving lady. I remember her and how she loved the Texas sports teams. She didn't miss many games. She loved her family and lived for them. Prayers for her family.
