Laurita Jean “Rita” Leiberton, age 74, of Reynoldsville, PA, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 24, 2018, as a resident of Christ the King Manor in DuBois, PA. Rita was born on August 8, 1944, to the late William John Sr., and Martina Monica (Sloan) Leiberton, in Soldier, PA. She graduated from the Reyn-Sykes High School with the class of 1962. She retired from Sensus (formerly Rockwell International) after 39 years of faithful service. In addition to her day job, she received her cosmetology certificate in 1979 and worked evenings out of her home for numerous years. Rita was an active member of the St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Reynoldsville, PA; Catholic Daughters of America; the Rosary Altar Society; the original Reynoldsville Homecoming Committee, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aeries #540. Though she had no children, she had many nieces and nephews who she loved as her own. They lovingly called her “Rowdy Rita” and she was known as the life of the party. Rita loved shopping, lottery tickets, traveling, ceramics, and bowling in the day. Her favorite color was purple and she loved wearing and displaying all things purple. She also enjoyed the monthly Lunch dates with former classmates lovingly referred to as O.B.E.O. (Old Beauties Eating Out) friends. More than anything, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Rita is survived by her companion, Harry Beck, of Austin, PA; one brother; William J. Leiberton Jr., of New Oxford, PA; two sisters; Carol A. Ishman of Reynoldsville, PA; Roberta E. (Brad) Kurten of Reynoldsville, PA; her many nieces and nephews; Chuck (Lori) Strouse of Brockway, PA; Theresa (Gary) Landini of Saxonburg, PA; Denise (Jeff Smith) Borland of Bradford, PA; Julie (Lynn) Strouse of DuBois, PA; Joseph (Brenda) Strouse of Clearfield, PA; Bonnie Strouse of Sykesville, PA; Ann (Scott) Etchberger of McDonough, GA; Beth (Dale) Reeder of Dillsburg, PA; Kim (Dave) Reiter of Sagamore Hills, OH; Curt (Melinda) Ishman of Reynoldsville, PA; Chris (Brian) Britton of Johnstown, PA; Robin (Tom) Olewnick of Penfield, PA; Rich Kurten of Reynoldsville, PA; twenty-three great nieces and nephews; eleven great-great nieces and nephews; and many children of her friends that also referred to her as Aunt Rita. In addition to her parents, Rita is preceded in death by one sister; Ellen J. Strouse; one nephew; James M. Strouse; and one great-nephew; Eric Ward. Family and friends will be received on Friday, December 28, 2018, from 3:30pm – 7:30pm, at the Snyder – d’Argy Funeral Home, 206 E. Main St., Reynoldsville, PA, 15851. A funeral service will take place on Saturday, December 29, 2018, at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 607 E. Main St., Reynoldsville, PA, 15851, beginning at 11:00am, and officiated by Father William Barron. Interment will take place at the St. Mary’s Cemetery, Reynoldsville, Jefferson Co., PA.

I'm sure going to miss Rita. We had some good times at our CD of A meetings. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. God got another Angel. RIP dear Rita. Severia
