Proud grandmother of Darius (Laura) Thomson, John (Lindsay) Siebert, John (Leah) Torosian, Michelle Torosian, Amy (Joe) Siebert-McKenzie, Alex (Paige) Johnston, Katelyn Petracca, Evan Jolgren, Steven Jolgren, Nick Petracca, Andy Johnston, Devyn Jolgren and Laurel Jolgren.

Godmother to many. Survived by many nieces and nephews. Rita was a loving wife, mother of five, grandmother of 13 and great-grandmother of 10 (so far). She worked hard and loved her family and extended family. She was always there to listen and she prayed for everyone! Her family believes that she had a direct line to Jesus and the blessed mother. She was a great role-model for all of her children, grand-children, great-grandchildren and extended family. She was loved by all and will be greatly missed.
