Edith I. Rigo – Burlington

Edith I. Rigo, 83, of Burlington, passed away peacefully on Sept. 12, 2013. She was born on Nov. 7, 1929, in Budapest, Hungary. She was predeceased by her husband, Dezso J. Rigo. The family emigrated from Budapest, Hungary, to the United States in 1969, settling in Burlington. They opened their tailoring business, Rigo’s Tailor Shop located on Church Street in Burlington, in 1973. Edith and Dezso both were master tailors. Edith loved working on Church Street and the camaraderie that the Marketplace offered. The entire family became U.S. citizens and made Burlington their lifelong home. After losing her husband in 1997, Edith closed their shop and continued working at her son, Csaba’s, business, Rigo Brothers Tailor. Edith’s passions were cooking, swimming, and spending time with her family. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren, Nicole and Travis. She was very proud when her granddaughter graduated from UVM and started her teaching career, and Travis started on his career path as a firefighter in North Carolina. Among her survivors is granddaughter Nicole C. Rigo of Shelburne. The family wishes to thank the entire staff at Starr Farm Nursing Home for their great care. They would also like to thank the Fletcher Allen hospital. They will forever be grateful to the devoted staff that provided them with kindness and compassion during Edith’s final days.
