Rita M. (Falardeau) Coyle Britt

DRACUT, MA- Rita M. (Falardeau) Coyle Britt, 72, died peacefully Wednesday, September 6th, at Lowell General Hospital. She was the widow of the late Maurice Coyle Jr. and the late Joseph Britt.

Rita was born in Lowell, MA on February 8, 1945, a daughter of the late Mary (Riley) and Joseph Falardeau. She was educated in Lowell and a graduate of Lowell High School. 

For over 32 years, Rita was employed by Raytheon in Andover, where she held several different positions during that time. 

Rita was an avid Red Sox fan, always more than willing to cheer them on. She loved to play Bingo and bowled for many years in a league at Wamesit Lanes. She enjoyed frequent outings to local ice cream stands with her family for her favorite hot fudge sundaes, and adored the many hours she spent shopping with her sister, Shirley. 

Rita is survived and will be deeply missed by her three children, Mary Coyle Carmichael and her husband Craig of Tyngsboro, Kerryann Coyle of Dracut, and Moe Coyle and his partner Arturo Rosado-Martir of Saugus; her siblings, Shirley Martineau and her husband Andre of Nashua, NH, and Joseph Falardeau and his wife Maureen of TN; five grandchildren, Chrystyana Bahou and her husband Jason, Colin Carmichael, Cameron Carmichael, Brittney Johnson and Trevor Johnson; one great-granddaughter, Anita Lowe, as well as several nieces and nephews. 

She was predeceased by her sister Marie Murray.
