Rita A. Brant
Rita A. (DiDonato) Brant, 71, Greenville, passed away following a brief illness Thursday evening, Feb. 6, 2020, in UPMC Jameson in New Castle.
She was born in Greenville, Sept. 1, 1948, to the late Anthony and Arline (James) DiDonato.
Rita attended St. Michael High School until it closed when she was in 10th grade, then graduated from Greenville High School in 1966. She was a member of St. Michael Roman Catholic Church, and retired from the housekeeping department at St. Paul's.
"RiRi," as she was known by family and friends, was a caring and generous person who gave to many charities. This led to her active participation in the American Legion Post 140 and Women of the Moose Chapter 1890. For the past 19 years, she has held several Women of the Moose positions, earning the Academy of Friendship and College of Regents. She volunteered for any and all things. The Moose members were like her extended family.
She loved playing bingo, and her daughter and grandsons meant the world to her.
Rita is survived by: a daughter, Deborah Hennegan and her husband, John, Mercer; two grandsons, Herbie Hennegan, San Antonio, Texas, and Jonathan Hennegan and his girlfriend Steph, Mercer; four sisters, Nila Cascio and her husband, John, Greenville; Ruth Maggs and her husband, Wayne, Greenville; Dona Artman and her husband, Doug, Hadley; and Joan Bartosh and her husband, Rick, Jamestown; two brothers, Paul DiDonato and his wife, Kathie, Jamestown; and Mark DiDonato and his wife, Mindy, Houston, Texas; and several nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and -nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Edgar L. Brant.
