SCHENECTADY – Rita DiMeo, 93, went home to the Lord on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Rita, a daughter of Joseph and Adeline (Namias) Krone, was born in New York City on October 3, 1925. She was a 1943 graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School, and worked during the War Effort for the Navy Department at General Electric, and later at the VA Hospital.
