Rita originally from the Bronx, worked as a secretary for CBS Broadcasting where she met Joe Reda. They were married a year later on October 3rd, 1959. Rita became the loving mother of Joseph, Helene, Rita and Gary, mother-in-law to Lisa and grandmother of Matthew and Melissa.
Rita was loved and respected by all who had the honor of knowing her for her selflessness, caring nature, strength, courage and ability to make everyone laugh with her spontaneous comments.
Rita and Joe recently celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary.
She will live on in our hearts forever until we meet again.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Rita's name can be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, 111 W. 3rd St., New York, NY 10120.
