Obituary for Rita Fidanza

Rita Margaret Fidanza, 93, of Ewing, passed away on Friday, Aug. 31, at Morris Hall. Rita was born in Trenton on Dec. 2, 1924, to Frank and Maria Gregorio Fidanza. She was a lifelong area resident.

After leaving Cathedral High School, Rita began her career with the State of N.J. Department of Labor, where she was employed for more than 40 years. She was a parishioner of St. James Church in Trenton and was an active member of the church’s senior citizens’ club.

In addition to her parents, Rita was predeceased by brothers Tony and Nick Fidanza; sisters Pia Paul, Mary Kehler, Edith Suppin and Jean Petrone; and cousins Eva and Jim Rotundo. She is survived by cousins Theresa Gregorio of Ewing and Nick Gregorio of Las Vegas, and many nieces and nephews and their children and grandchildren.

Rita’s family would especially like to thank her neighbor Laurie Helstrom and her friend Joan Rogalinski for their unfailing kindness to her, and Daniel Alessi, whom she loved dearly. At the end of her life, Rita was tenderly cared for by the staff of St. Joseph Skilled Nursing Center, and her family extends its gratitude to them.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 11 a.m., at St. James Church, 29 East Paul Ave., Trenton, N.J. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the time of the Mass at the church. There will be no calling hours at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in Rita’s memory to the charity of your choice.

Arrangements are under the direction of Hamilton Brenna Cellini Funeral Home, 2365 Whitehorse Mercerville Road, Hamilton, NJ 08619.
