Rita A. Crockett

March 10, 1944 - June 8, 2021

Rita Crockett passed away June 8, 2021 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Rita was born March 10, 1944 to Gaetano and Angela Farina in Naples, Italy. 

As a young lady, Rita married and immigrated to the United States. Her life-long dream was to be a wife and mother. Two children came quickly. Although the marriage did not work out as hoped, she devoted her life to making her kids’ lives as good as she could. There were always meatballs and lots of hugs, both for family, friends, and strangers. The best gift she left behind was her love for the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Rita was predeceased by her parents and three of her eight siblings. She is survived by her two children, 9 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren. 

A memorial mass will be held in her honor.
