Rita J. Barry, age 88, of Rome, passed away July 30, 2011, in Rome Memorial Hospital, with her loving family at her side.

She was born December 8, 1922, in Rome, a daughter of Carl and Ellen Tyrrell Schuler, and graduated from the Academy of Holy Names in 1940.

Rita loved playing cards and played ‘Pitch" for many years at various clubs and organizations throughout the city. She also thoroughly enjoyed having a beer with her many friends she made over the years. Rita loved her job at St. Peter's School cafeteria and treated the students as though they were her own children and always made the students their favorite lunches.
