Offer Condolence for the family of Rita McNallyPrint This Obituary & Condolences
I am so sad that my dear cousin has passed away! We have shared many times together and the aunties! At least she is with her family and the dear aunts whom she loved. She was a talented person and loved helping those less fortunate. She was a dear person and I am so glad I spent some time with her recently before her passing. She is among the angels now!
I think I found her. But I’m a little late. Ms. McNally is one of the most pivotal people to enter my life. She was my first grade teacher at Milo Elementary in Columbus, Ohio. She taught me to read. She taught me to read well. I’ve always wanted to find her and thank her for providing me with such a wonderful gift. She opened up a wonderful world to me and my classmates. She was one of the finest teachers a six year old could ever have. Thank you Ms. McNally!

Not sure if this person is the Rita McNally who taught at St. Cecelia’s (located on Kinsman Avenue/East 151 St) in Cleveland, Ohio, during the mid-1960s. She was my 4th or 5th grade teacher. My family moved away to another parish. I missed her a lot.
