When she walked into a room, a proper lady had arrived: Rita was dressed to the nines all the way down to gloves and hat. Fittingly she worked spent many a year working in the New York Garment District. Of course not many paychecks made it home: too much temptation. She was the fun Nanny: kids always left fed and topped off with an ice cream sundae. Behind the stove she was a wiz; not Italian but she sure cooked like one: her Lasagna and stuffed shells were to die for. If her T.V was on she’d be checking out some old movies, especially Betty Davis. For her music she need look no further than Englebert Humperdinck.
On a night on the town in New York City she’d meet a guy named Richard. Their marriage was blessed with two children, the late Richard and Lori Bionda; 2 grandchildren, Jill (Byron) Vile and Joe Hickey; and a great grandchilld, Vivian Vile.
Come celebrate 90 great years on Monday at 11:30am for a service at Brigadier William C Doyle Cemetery, Wrightstown.
