Rita Mary Drexler Bauman died suddenly Saturday, January 27th 2018 and has gone to heaven. She was a devote Catholic as well as a loving loyal wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She was born October 23, 1939 in Akron, Ohio and had been a resident of Wadsworth, Ohio since 1974. She is survived by her husband Robert and three children Neil (Christina), Deborah (Bob) and Dianna. Her grandchildren Rick, Bob, Maggie and Blaine loved her and the unconditional love and support she gave them. She also prayed daily for Tracy, Victoria, Jennifer, Arianna and Joseph who live afar.
Her services will be private; however, a Memorial Mass is scheduled at Prince of Peace Church in Barberton, Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 5:00pm, for anyone who would like to attend. We ask that in lieu of flowers, make a donation or provide a gift to your nearest homeless shelter, as Rita, for years hand knitted hats, scarves and gloves as her way of giving what she could.
We love you Mom and you will never be forgotten! She is playing Dominos and laughing as we speak with Bill and Judy.
