Rita A. Ianni (1940-2014)



Rita A. Ianni, age 74, a resident of Kenosha passed away Wednesday March 26, 2014, at her residence surrounded by her loving family.
        Rita was born February 1, 1940 in Kenosha, WI to John and Ida (Buha) Schultz; she was united in marriage to Redo Ianni.
Rita was a strong nurturing loving person that gave more than she received.  With the passing of her husband Redo in 1972, Rita’s world would never be the same, as she became the sole provider to raise three young boys.  Her ability to nurture baby robins that fell from their nest and her enduring love and guidance while raising her three children is a testament to Rita’s courage and love that she provided to so many.
Rita was an avid bowler winning the Kenosha News 1977 Women’s Championship.  She loved to spend time tending to her garden, cheering for the Cubs and Bears, plus cooking and baking for friends and family.  Rita worked and retired from Brookside Care Center in 1997 and enjoyed her retirement with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends.  Gram, as she was called by her grandchildren, will remain in all of our hearts; her smile and love will live on…
Rita is survived by her children, Jon, Frank and Dino.  She is also survived by her grandchildren, Jayme, Redo and Payton, plus her four great grandchildren Tanner, Landon, Kasey and Kamren.
Rita was preceded in death by her father John Schultz; mother Ida Schultz; brother, Judge Joseph Schultz; and husband, Redo Ianni.


A brief funeral service was held on Friday March 28th 2014 at Holy Nativity Lutheran Church (2313-17th Ave) at 7:00PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family would be appreciated.
