HHA sadly notes the passing of Rita (Mrs. Gregg) Warner, one of our most dedicated volunteers for many years, an enthusiastic attendee at Elegant Progressions, and a staunch advocate for our cause, who died June 10. Rita’s husband Gregg is a past Board Member and President of HHA, and they often volunteered together.
“Rita volunteered for me and with me in MANY faithful capacities over the years, dating back more than 30 years when she and Gregg chaired the Greater Harrisburg Arts Festival, my first involvement in volunteering in Harrisburg,” said HHA director David Morrison. “When I subsequently chaired the same festival a decade later, and found myself in way over my head, Rita was at my side literally every day for three months — and frequently invited me home to the Warner residence for supper. She provided similar assistance at Historic Harrisburg Association, and she almost never refused a request for volunteer help. She was kind, generous and devoted to this community.”
