Rita M. Fedewa, of Wabash, passed away in peace on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the age of 92.  She was born in Kentland, Indiana, on June 21, 1927, to the late John C. and Anastasia (Bower) Prue.  Rita married Thomas H. Fedewa on June 27, 1951.

Rita was a member of St. Bernard Catholic Church in Wabash for over 65 years.  She was also a member of Delta Thata Tau Sorority.  

Rita loved nothing better than going to mass and volunteering at the Dallas Winchester Senior Center.  She got along with everyone and was always there to lend a helping hand. In her final seven years of life, she lived with her son, Rick and his wife, Ginger, so she could be with her three dogs, Sophie, Colt and Daisy.
