I was born and grew up in Center Ridge, Arkansas and lived in Pilgrim community for a short time. I graduated from Northeast High School in Oklahoma City, OK.
I graduated from Oklahoma State University, and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences with a degree in nursing.
I have two daughters and sons-in-law as well as seven grandchildren, and one great-grandson. I retired after 24 years as a registered nurse.
I love living the country life in Solgohachia, Arkansas.
Rita Galloway is a retired Oncology Registered Nurse.

This book is an effort to capture the rich history of a once vibrant community where her maternal great-grandparents and grandparents made their home.
