Rita’s passions were her Roman Catholic faith and her family. She loved to cook and “feed the people”. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren especially loved her signature sprinkle cookies AND her meatballs. Rita had many friends. Post retirement she loved to travel with her family and friends. She played poker (for very low stakes) every Friday night with her close friends. She was a member of the Melrose Park Italian Club and the Bloomingdale Township Seniors. She also enjoyed many Roselle Park District activities. Rita had a green thumb and she enjoyed helping her children plant their gardens and flowers each year. Rita was born and raised in the town of Gesuiti in Calabria, Italy, and came to the Chicago area via Toronto at age 17; she married Robert shortly after arriving from Italy.
