Rita L. Albrecht, 77, of Gnadenhutten passed away peacefully on Monday, April 19, 2021 in Community Hospice, Truman House at New Philadelphia following an acute stroke.

Born in Anoka, Minnesota, she was the daughter of the late Edlor and Ruth (Schafer) Pariseau. Rita was a homemaker and a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many. She devoted her time investing in those relationships. Rita was firmly grounded in her faith and enjoyed sharing her love of the Lord. She and Sparky served as missionaries in the Philippines, where she developed life-long friendships. She loved to cook, bake, shop and go to lunch with friends. Volunteering at Community Hospice was one of her favorite jobs. She was a member of the First Baptist Church at New Philadelphia and had also attended the Authentic Church at New Philadelphia with her family.

Rita was preceded in death by her husband, Durrant “Sparky” Albrecht on December 2, 2000. Surviving is a daughter, Aliena (Tim) Holt of Florida; two sons, Dave (Joan) Albrecht of Uhrichsville and Tim (Mareta) Albrecht of New Philadelphia; two sisters, Carol Pust of Tennessee and Sherril (John) Fox of North Carolina; a brother, Ronnie Pariseau of Minnesota; 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
