Glastris, Rita

(nee Allen) Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on June 18, 2020. Beloved wife of the late John Glastris, dearest mother of Lee (Peggy) Taylor, and grandmother of Kimberly (Matthew) Limoli and Emily (Patrick) Hurrle, and great-grandmother of Andrew, Vivienne, and James. Loving sister of the late Duff, Robert, Rev. Richard O.S.A., and Patricia Dean.

Rita will always be remembered as a talented, 'multi-million dollar' real estate agent, author of a widely read weekly real estate column in the Suburban Journal newspaper, and a lady who liked to dress in brightly colored designer clothes (especially St. John's Outfits). She was best known for her strong will and her signature 'hug' greeting. She was a proud member of Alcoholic Anonymous for over 40 years. In the last years of her life, Rita battled dementia and passed away peacefully.

Rita was a wonderful neighbor and friend. She always greeted us with a
smile and kind, happy words.
Rita always asked after our family and loved to look at all of my travel pictures! When our girls came to town, she insisted on having them over.
When we were out of town, she would watch over our house for us.
We will miss her dearly!
