Rita S. Reardon

Rita S. (Stokes) Reardon, a lifelong resident of Weymouth, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Monday, October 26, 2020. She was 89 years of age. 

Rita was devoted to her family and her friends. The most important thing in her life was spending time with her family especially cooking in her kitchen, where she was always making something special for them, that made her happy. She loved to read and watch old movies over the past few years. She loved all the New England teams and watching sports.

In her early years she worked as a secretary and a waitress. She enjoyed trips to the casinos, but her Saturday night card parties for over 30 years was one of her favorite things to do.

Reardon, III and Steven Reardon of Weymouth and Michael Reardon and his wife Patricia of Marshfield, her daughter Linda Lynch and her husband David of Weymouth. Loving grandmother to Jason Reardon of Marshfield and David Lynch, Jr. of Quincy. Great grandmother to Jaina Lynch of Quincy. Rita was also survived by many nieces and nephews.
