Always a smile - always kind words. Ria was a very calming person. We had the pleasure of meeting Ria when our children went to St. Monicas. I'm sure she will be missed by all. Prayers for the Filippelli Family and know we are thinking of you.
Love, Linda and Jim Spinelli

Dear Frank and Family,

Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Ria was such a gift to our children while they were at Trinity. She had the utmost patience with all children and especially those with learning differences.

With love and comfort,
The Lynch Family

I taught at Trinity for 7 years in the classroom next to Ria. She was a great neighbor and was up for any craziness I could think up! She had the patience of a saint with the children. I moved away a couple of years ago but I am reminded of our time through pictures I have flashing on my computer. The pictures the family has shared on this page are beautiful. She was a great mother and well loved. I am so sorry for your loss!🙏💕
