Welcome to the memorial page for

Rita Jo Headley

July 26, 1942 ~ October 5, 2017 (age 75)
Rita Jo Headley, loving Wife, Mother and Granny, passed away at IU Health-Bloomington Hospital on Thursday, October 5, 2017. She was 75 years old.

Rita was born on July 26, 1942 in Bloomington, Indiana and resided in Ellettsville most of her life. She married William "Bill" Headley on October 7, 1960 and they started a loving family. Rita worked at the Lifeway Baptist Church for over 15 years as a secretary to the church where she was also a member. She loved her family dearly and they meant everything to her. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and as the family grew, she helped to raise and spoil her great-grandchildren also. The void she leaves can never be filled.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Imogene "Jeanne" (McLaughlin) Bennett and brother, Ricky Bennett.

Rita is survived by her husband of 57 years, William "Bill" Headley of Ellettsville; children, Terri Bartlett and husband Doug of Ellettsville, William Headley of Spencer, and Bobby Headley and his wife MaryAnn of Ellettsville; sister, Connie Summers of Bloomington; brothers, Mike Bennett and wife, Kristie of Ellettsville and Jimmie Miesenheimer of Bloomington; four grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at Lifeway Baptist Church at 5:00 p.m. with Pastor Steve Vonbokern and Pastor Jose Esquibel officiating. Cremation is to follow the funeral services. Visitation will be at the church on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of services.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Lifeway Baptist Church, 7821 State Road 46, Ellettsville, IN 47429, a cause that was dear to her heart.
