Rita Marie (Saitta) Hug
October 21, 1928-January 11, 2020
Join us in celebrating a beautiful love story. Rita Marie Hug passed away on Saturday, just days after her husband, Harold. The couple married 71 years are together again. Rita died at age 91 after a life devoted to family. She took great pride in her six children, eleven grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren. One of her favorite pastimes was finding the perfect present for them. She loved to give an unexpected gift. Rita was always ready for a good conversation, offered a listening ear and gave some of the best advice. She put others first and treated every person with compassion and kindness, setting an example for all of us to follow. We already miss her but take comfort in knowing she’s reunited with her first love, Harold. Rita is also preceded in death by her parents, Richard F.
