Funeral Mass for Rita Mae (nee Dietzel) Cabot of Mentor, will be 12 noon Monday at St. John Vianney Church, 7575 Bellflower Road, Mentor. Father Tom Johns will officiate the Mass. (Family and friends are asked to meet at church.)
Mrs. Cabot passed away Thursday, Dec. 26, 2019, at Altercare of Mentor.
She was born in Cleveland and had been a resident of Lake County for more than 36 years.
Though she was retired, Rita had worked for years as a Faberware demonstrator throughout the entire northeast sector of Ohio. She had also worked in a Bridal Shop selling dresses to perspective brides, which she said was so much fun because each bride had something different in mind. In her later years, when apart from William, Rita enjoyed yardwork, her participation in the prayer group at St. John Vianney Church in Mentor, and being a grandma and great-grandma. She certainly had a talent for so generously giving the best she had to offer. Rita was a member of the Catholic Daughters of America and also the Red Hat group Razzle Dazzle Darlins.
Rita was the loving mother of William J. (Lee) Cabot Jr., and Elaine A. (Richard) Newman; cherished grandmother of Rita M. (Tim) Smith, Christine (Larry) Bottorff, Michael Cabot, Dean (Vicky) Newman, Aleyse (Greg) Scott, Richard Newman and Renee (Nick) Satink; great-grandmother of Abigail Bottorff, Max Cabot, Blake Newman, Eric Newman, Jaxon Scott, Tyler Rus and Samantha Rus; and sister of George (Carroll) Dietzel, and Robert (Amy) Dietzel.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, William J. Cabot in 2001; parents, George and Dorothy (nee Pickett) Dietzel; and siblings, Dorothy (John, dec.) Feran and Thomas Dietzel.
Family will receive friends from 11 a.m. until the time of the Mass at the church. Burial will be in All Souls Cemetery in Chardon Township.
Contributions in her name are suggested to Hospice of the Western Reserve, 17876 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland, OH 44110.
Arrangements are entrusted to McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Homes in Willoughby and Mentor.
