Rita R. Warren

Rita R. Warren, December 22, 2022

Rita Warren died peacefully in her sleep in Oklahoma City with her sons Steven and Matthew (thanks to technology) by her side. It was the day after what would have been her 70th anniversary to Lionel G. Warren (of blessed memory), the love of her life. In addition to Lionel, Rita was preceded in death by her son David Warren (of blessed memory). Rita is survived by her sons Matthew (April) of Gig Harbor, WA and Steven (Cherisse) of Oklahoma City and David’s widow, Rhona Lyons of St. Louis. Rita’s memory will be treasured by her 4 granddaughters, Ariel, Abra (Jonathan Fischer), Mital, and Pardes Lyons-Warren and her 4 grandsons, Austin, Adam, Marcel and Ethan Warren and her 2 great-granddaughters, Amalia and Ayla Fischer-Lyons-Warren.

Rita lived in many places: NYC, Baltimore, Houston, St. Louis, Venezuela, New Orleans, Spain, Israel, and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. She spent the last 4 months of her life Oklahoma, just a few minutes away from her son, Steven. A lifelong learner and teacher, Rita made and kept friends from all over the world and will be greatly missed.
