Obituary

Rita Sciarra (nee Giuffrida) of Blue Bell, passed away peacefully on Saturday June 19, 2021. She was 93 years old. Born April 1, 1928 in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Mario and Santina (nee DiFilippo), and the beloved wife of the late Edward P. Sciarra.

Rita was devoted to her faith and was an active parishioner at St Helena's for the last 50 years. Rita's main objective in life was to be happy, never complain and to care deeply for her family. Rita loved the holidays and having large family gatherings, she always wanted her loved ones nearby. She was an excellent cook, a spotless homemaker, and always had the door open (and extra food) for any and all that would stop in.

Rita was the loving mother of the late Edward J. Sciarra, Joyce Levin (Leonard) and Mario Sciarra (Debbie), four grandchildren: Sam, Josh, Alexa and Nick. She was preceded in death by her brother Sam Giuffrida.
