Lynn A. Ricca

Lynn A. Ricca (nee Vargo), 63, of Newbury, died Jan. 7, 2021 at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center. She was born in Parma, Ohio on May 8, 1957 to Leonard and Bernice (Menger) Vargo. She later married Ronald P. Ricca on June 4, 1977.

Mrs. Ricca, or “Momma Ricca,” as neighborhood kids called her, was known as the “community mom” to friends and family as she opened her home to them, whether for a holiday or an impromptu get-together. She was active in the Newbury PTO while her kids were in school and enjoyed going to various local casinos to play slot machines.

She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Ronald; children, Ronald C. (Christina) Ricca, Nicole Ricca and Tuan (Courtney) Ricca; her brother, Tim (Lisa) Vargo; four grandchildren; two nieces; two siblings-in-law; cousins and many friends.

A private graveside service will take place at Newbury Center Cemetery, 14915 Auburn Road in Newbury. A celebration of life will take place at a later date. Online condolences may be sent at
