Bryant, Arkansas

Rita Ann Stackhouse, born on October 7, 1946 in Little Rock, AR. Passed away peacefully on October 20, 2022  surrounded by family and friends. Preceded in death by her parents Anthony & Angelina Paladino, brother Robert Paladino, and husband Jerrold Stackhouse.

Rita loved being diversified in her career path. She was known by many, and had a heart for sharing her time with others. She always lent a hand, shoulder and heart where it was and was not needed. She had a special way of bringing joy to others when they needed it the most. She loved staying busy, being outdoors, and nurturing things to make them whole again. Living her life for every moment and to its fullest. Much like her love for jewelry, she too was a diamond in the rough, this allowed her to see the rare beauty in everyone around her. Her beauty will shine on through her surviving family. Rita is survived by her sister Theresa (Vincent) Chiaro of Little Italy AR; daughters Deanna (Jimmy) Heavrin of Benton AR, Danyell (Jeff) Bryant of Alexander AR; granddaughters Lauren (Drew) Lavender of Bryant AR, Alise (Cody) Magrath of Benton AR, Morgan Bryant of Alexander AR; grandsons Andrei Bryant, Ivan Bryant both of Alexander AR; and great granddaughters Lainey and Adalynn Lavender.

In lieu of service or flowers, at Rita’s request, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, in honor of her own journey with cancer.
