Obituary for Rita Giuffre

Rita Giuffre, age 77, passed away peacefully on June 28 due to complications from a stroke. She was born to Joseph and Anna Tobin in Freeport, IL. In October 1960, she married her high school sweetheart Anthony Giuffre.
Rita grew up in town, but loved animals, especially dogs and horses. Her dream to own a farm was realized a few years after she was married. The farm needed lots of work but the young couple never stopped fixing the house, barn and sheds. There were horses, cattle, chickens, dogs and cats. Horses and dogs were her love. She was a respected horsewoman who raised and showed Quarter horses.
When they retired they moved south to a beautiful property next to the Shawnee National Forest. They built their home and tamed the immediate area into a beautiful park-like setting. Days were spent working on their paradise and riding the Shawnee trails with their many horse friends.
Rita will be dearly missed by her husband, Tony; three children, Jennifer (Tom) Vos, Theresa (Mark) Schneider, Mark Giuffre; eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Prayer service will be at 10:30 am on Friday, July 5, 2019 at Aly Funeral Home in Eddyville, IL. Visitation/Luncheon will follow the service for food, fellowship and sharing of sweet memories.
The family request that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to: Hospice and No-Kill Animal Shelters.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in Freeport, IL at the end of summer.
