Aunt Rita, So many childhood memories, laughter and fun at our pool with my mom and dad, you, Uncle Lou and the Ossy boy cousins! So much joy - that's how I will always remember you. I had the pleasure of calling you every May 22 in honor of St. Rita. Give her a hug for me in heaven,OK? I miss and love you and you will always be in my heart. With tears of sadness and joy knowing how much you wanted to be with Our Lord. Your namesake and niece, Rita Marie
My sweet Aunt Rita, When I think of you, I see your sparkling, laughing eyes. Even when you were sad your eyes still sparkled.I have loved you since I was a toddler. I cherished coming to Busia's house when you, Aunt Fran,and Aunt Teresa lived there.If I were lucky, you'd be baking your special peanut butter cookies and you'd let me make the fork indendations. I'll always love you and hold you in a special part of my heart. May God hold you in many hugs. Your Flower Girl.
I would like to send expressions of sympathy to the entire Ossy family.
I express my greatest sympathy to the Ossy family.
Dearest Rita, You were a Gem to my Mom for so many years. I enjoyed the stories that you shared with one another, and Mom shared with me. I remember the last time I saw you with Mom, we munched on Duly's hot dogs and donuts, such a fun visit for each of us. Hug our Mom for us, I'm sure you will find her at a bingo game in Heaven, she will be at the head of the table! Good-bye Sweet Friend. Love, Susan Lesko Klee ( Dorothy's daughter )
