Rita Joan (Zieman) Samberg, age 88 years, passed away on June 13, 2012 at Kingston Residence in Perrysburg, Ohio. She was born on December 10, 1923 in Perrysburg, Ohio. She is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Harold; children, Mary (Robert) Miller, Karen Malcolm, John (Sue) Samberg, Fred Samberg and Peter (Penni) Samberg; sister, Marcia (John) Harpen; grandchildren, Sarah (Steve) Dent, Anne Marie (Damian) Ruggiero, Jason (Kate) Samberg, Mark (Lindsay) Miller, Alice (Dan) Drobac, Drew Malcolm, Michael (Jill) Samberg, Peter Samberg, Chris Samberg; twelve great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Dear daughter of the late Josephine(Bruss)and sister of the late Ann(Kaufman).
Rita's friendship with Harold Samberg began in fourth grade at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Elementary School and continued on through high school. Rita attended Central Catholic High School, graduating in 1941. Shortly after the high school years, her future husband enlisted in the United States Air Force and soon left for active duty as a pilot. Shot down and taken prisoner, Rita waited patiently for news of his well-being and eventual return in 1945. Rita is best known for her volunteer work with the St. Patrick of Heatherdowns Altar-Rosary Society and Funeral Choir, Co-Chair of CCHS Class of '41 Reunion, St. Vincent Hospital, The Toledo Lucas County Library and McAuley High School. Rita and Harold enjoyed many vacations at their home on Lake Emma Michigan. She was always ready to participate in activities suggested by her children and grandchildren and she enjoyed playing bridge and an occasional trip with her girlfriends. Rita will always be remembered for her pleasant, sunny disposition and devotion to her family. It was her family's privilege to have her as our wife, mother and grandmother and we will miss her more than we can say.
