Rita R. DeCarlo Humphries, age 80, of Trumbull passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 23, 2018. She was the wife of the late Raymond Humphries and James Daddana. Born in Bridgeport on September 17, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Louis DeCarlo and Rose Salese Abbruscato. A graduate of Harding High School, Rita was later employed by Sacred Heart University, where she worked as assistant to the President before her retirement with many years of dedicated service. She loved books and was an avid reader.
