Rita Ruiz-Venegas

February 18, 1958 – October 19, 2023

Aka Bela to her Grandchildren and to her Great-Grandchildren.

Rita was born in Bakersfield to Mary Allen Avalos and Arthur Ruiz.

On October 19, 2023 our Mom went home to be with her Lord and Savior.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Step Dad Albert Camacho and

by her baby Brother Anthony Camacho (Tony). She is survived by her

Husband of 30 years whom she loved dearly Ralph Venegas, her two

Daughters Michelle (Joe), Heather (Zach), and her baby boy Ralphy Saldana

(her sonshine), her Grandkids Savannah, Jenessa, Jayven, and Fancy.

Her Great Grandchildren Bryant Jr., Ezekiel, Joseph, and Alaynie, her two Brothers

Jesse Boy, Manuel, and her sister Angela. Rita attended Guadalupe school then

went on to high school at Bakersfield High where she graduated. Rita had the

privilege of living in Germany right after high school for a couple of years. Rita

was a caregiver for 30 years with In Home Support Services. In her free time

she enjoyed reading a good book, hiking, swimming, and just simply spending

quality time with her family. My Mom has always been a woman with strong faith,

however, over the past year she had developed an even closer relationship with

the Lord. She would bring a different dessert every Wednesday to bible study

where she would soon become known as “The Dessert Lady” Lol! My Mom

is going to be missed tremendously, however we take comfort in knowing

she is now in peace and in the presence of the Lord. We as her family are very

truly grateful that God blessed us with her for the past 65 years, but her memory

will live on in us all forever! So, this is not goodbye Mom, but a see you later save

us a seat in Heaven.
