Rita Teresa King (nee Capone), age 82, passed away peacefully April 29, 2019. Rita lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; watching the string bands perform every New Years Day, spending time with her family, rooting for the New England Patriots, and cooking for everyone she knew. Rita was a devoted mother and loved all her grandchildren fiercely. She was known for her honesty and never missing an opportunity for a wise crack. We will miss her sharp mind and wit.
Rita joins her son, Sonny Belfiore, her mother Lydia Capone, and her father Nicholas Capone. Rita was a loving mother to Donna Conway, beloved “Nanny” to Richard Alexander, Nicholas Conway, Kathryn Conway, great grandmother to Talia Marie Alexander, and a dear sister to Judy Alesandrini (Hons). Also surviving are many treasured cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
