Zita retired from Ebensburg Center in 2007 after 20 years of service. She enjoyed gardening, tending to her flowers and being in the outdoors. Most important to Zita was her family and spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren. She especially enjoyed being at camp in Cook Forest. Zita was always on the go and always talking to someone. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
At Zita’s request, there will be no viewing. A Memorial Mass will be held on Friday, July 29, 2022 at 11 AM at Holy Family Catholic Church in Portage, Fr. Thomas Stabile, Celebrant. The Gailey Family is being served by the Matthew R. Decort Funeral Home Inc. in Portage. On-line condolences may be made at www.decortfh.com
