Resided in Cincinnati, OH


Rita Lee Seifert (nee Lena Rita Sansone), wife of Bob Seifert, mother of RJ, Gregory, and Jeffrey. Rita Lee is survived by her loving husband of 66 years and 3 sons and their wives, Patty, Carolyn, and Marybeth.

Our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great- grandmother was affectionately known as Nonnie.

Nonnie loved to cook, garden, entertain, and most of all, loved everyone who crossed her path. Italian spaghetti sauce, strawberry pie and chocolate chip cookies were Nonnie's specialties. No one ever left her house with an empty stomach. Prior to motherhood, Rita managed her father's grocery store, Sansone's Market, and also was employed at General Electric (Evendale) and the University of Cincinnati.

Rita passed away peacefully on Friday, September 23, 2016.
