Obituary of Rita Whipple

Rita Whipple, 66, of Hackettstown, NJ passed away on March 27, 2020 at home. Rita was born on December 27, 1953 in Waterbury, CT to the late Bruno and Helen Luboyeski. She attended Notre Dame Catholic High School and then studied at Briarwood College for Dental Assisting. She was a dental assistant at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ before she passed and previously worked at Morristown Memorial Hospital for over 20 years. Rita loved to cook and keep everyone fed, no matter the place or time. She had a love and green thumb for caring for her plants and gardening. She had a kind heart, and spent her free hours grocery shopping and delivering groceries to the elderly that needed assistance. Her favorite place to be was at the beach. Rita never met a dog she didn't like and seeing any dog would brighten her day! Rita is survived by her children, Brittany Whipple, Kyle Whipple and Shawn Foss, her brother, Paul Luboyeski, and her granddaughter, Morgan Foss.
