Rita was preceded in death by her parents, Merrick Joseph Callegari Sr. and Evelyn Agnes Lacombe Callegari, and by her beloved son Chad Scott Saucier.

Rita was born in Biloxi, Mississippi and was a longtime resident of Mobile, Alabama where she raised her three children. After her son died in 1993, Rita became an strong advocate against hazing at colleges across the country. Rita loved life and lived it to the fullest. She loved big and was adored by her friends and family. She had a great sense of humor and an even better laugh that was contagious. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren, and she loved spending time with them.

I have fond memories of Rita when she lived in Baton Rouge with our uncle Abe. Mom would take me to visit and Rita and I would play board games or just go outside and roam the woods. She will surely be missed. My condolences to her family and loved ones.
