Obituary for Rita DeStefano (Bambace)

Rita Grace DeStefano, 98, Hartsdale passed peacefully with her daughter by her side on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
Rita was born in Tuckahoe, N.Y. on December 26, 1922 to Anthony and Mary Bambace and was the youngest of eight children. Rita was married on June 22, 1947 to Lee DeStefano, who predeceased her in 1986. She is survived by her loving daughters, Linda Boysen and Debbie LoCicero. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Samantha LoCicero and Michael LoCicero who she loved and treasured.
Rita was a loving and caring mother and a proud grandma. She enjoyed reading, entertaining and helping others.
In the early years mom was happily employed by Saks Fifth Avenue, N.Y.C. and Scarsdale High School where she made lifelong friends.
She will be sorely missed and will forever be in our hearts.
The family welcomes donations to St. Jude Children''s Research Hospital as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers.
