Rita graduated from Holy Trinity School, Somerset, Ohio, in 1953 then earned a degree in dietetics from Saint Mary of the Springs College (present day Ohio Dominican University), Columbus, Ohio, in 1957. Rita worked as a Registered dietitian for Dupont in Seaford, Delaware, for two years before returning to Ohio to be closer to family, specifically her mother who had MS.

Rita enjoyed cooking; entertaining and welcoming friends into her home; creating and collecting pottery; flower gardening; shopping, and traveling. She was not afraid to show her silly side. Rita was especially proud of her Irish heritage. She cherished her grandchildren and treasured every moment spent with them. Rita knew how to love her children as each required and their lives are now richer for it. As Rita said, “I’ve lived a good life.”
