She was born on February 14, 1934, the daughter of Andrew and Anna (Sweet) Homa. She grew up in St. Clair, Pennsylvania, and attended St. Clair schools.
Rita was the loving wife of Ferdinand J. Adamcik, who preceded her in death in 2006.

Rita fondly recalled her years working for the Department of The Army in Washington, D.C., at the Pentagon, as well as Fort Indiantown Gap. She also worked at John F. Miles Construction Company in Kulpmont. She was a long-time member of Holy Angels Church in Kulpmont.
Rita was well-known for her amazing chocolate chip cookies that she baked every Christmas, as well as her halupkis and city chicken. In her later years, Rita relaxed by spending time with and talking to her grandchildren, enjoying crossword puzzles, and watching Dancing with the Stars and polka dancing on television.

Carmel; and daughter Lori Kariss and her husband Richard, of Short Hills, NJ. She loved being a “MomMom” more than anything, and was proud to be a MomMom of both twins and triplets.
