Anne Rita Ryan-Scanlon

Rita Scanlan, Born in Port Allegany, PA on Aug. 27, 1915.  Departed on Mar. 17, 2010 and resided in Ambler, PA. Visitation: Tuesday, Mar. 23, 2010   09:00 am – 10:00 am.  Funeral Mass: Tuesday, Mar. 23, 2010
10:00 am Funeral Mass: Thursday, Mar. 25, 2010,  10:00 am Cemetery: St. Elizabeth Cemetery.  Anne Rita Ryan Scanlan, 94, a long time resident of Colegrove, McKean County, Pennsylvania, passed away
peacefully at her daughter Rosemary’s home in Ambler, PA on March 17, 2010. She was preceeded in death by her husband Nicholas William Scanlan.  Rita was born in Port Allegany, PA on August 27, 1915, the daughter of the late William Patrick and Bridgid Josephine Fitzstephens Ryan, the second of their three children. Her father was a professional baseball player, a catcher in the minor leagues, and a hotelier. He introduced her to many early baseball legends and entertainment stars of the era.  Her mother immigrated to the United States from Foxford, County Mayo, Ireland by ship as a child in 1900.  Rita was an exceptional student and in her years of elementary and secondary education in Olean and Wellsville, New York, respectively, skipped grades and, upon high school graduation, attained the highest scores ever recorded on the New York State Regents Exams. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Villa Maria College in Erie, PA with a double major degree in French and mathematics.  While in college she met Nick Scanlan, also a student in Erie at Gannon College. He was an  accomplished amateur pugilist and aviator. They were married July 1, 1940 in Wellsville, NY. During WWII the young couple resided at various air bases across the U.S. where her now Army Air Corps Captain husband had been assigned as a flight instructor to new cadets. After the war they returned to the home in Colegrove where they raised their family. Nick operated the Smethport Garage Company , an automobile dealership, in Smethport, PA until his death in 1972.  Rita was a substitute teacher at the Smethport Area Jr.-Sr. High School often teaching French and Latin for 17 years until her retirement at age 78.
She enjoyed portrait sketching, her yard full of perennial flowers and shrubs, and the many cats and dogs she loved over the years.  She was politically astute and an obstinate life-long Democrat in a county overwhelmed with Republicans, including her husband. She was strong-willed and did not hesitate to voice her opinion.  Rita did a great deal of community outreach, helping the elderly and needy. She was proud of her Irish heritage and often exhibited her great wit and gift for gab. She was fortunate enough to make a pilgrimage to her parent’s homeland In her later years and even kiss the Blarney Stone. And as the luck of the Irish would have it, she passed away on St. Patrick’s Day. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ambler, PA, St. Elizabeths of Hungary in Smethport, PA, Catholic Daughters of America, McKean County Historical Society where she served as Vice President, and was
also a CCD Teacher at St. Elizabeth Church in Smethport, PA. She is survived by her seven children: Colleen Anne McClay (William) of Drexel Hill, PA; Michael James Scanlan (Margaret) of Golden, CO; Dennis Eugene Scanlan of Boise, Idaho; Marie Louise Anderson (Samuel) of Wallingford, PA; Brian Christopher Scanlan of Drexel Hill, PA; Rosemary Jacob (Neil) of Ambler, PA; Jane Rita Scanlan of
Melbourne, FL; nine grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. She was pre-deceased by her brother William Stephen Ryan and her sister Mary Frances Cunningham. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in her name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P.O. Box 1000 Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38148
