Rita Houston Dies Peacefully at the Age of 90

Rita Houston, wife of Regent's much beloved founding Principal Jim Houston, died peacefully on Oct. 8 in the presence of family.

“While the community of Regent College mourns the loss of Rita Houston,” states Regent College President Rod Wilson, “we are glad that she is no longer in pain and has been freed from the physical and emotional challenges of recent years. She will be remembered as a woman who loved Scripture, who cared deeply about others, who had a wonderful sense of humour, and who was a great encourager to many. The Rita Houston Kitchen will be a lasting memory of Rita’s care for, and appreciation of, the Regent community and it will be a symbol for future generations of her ministry of hospitality. We grieve her loss but celebrate her life while we pray for Jim and the extended family during this sacred time.”
