Rita (Danese) Charest with Liberace and Two Friends
Rita (Danese) Charest was a big fan of the singer, pianist, and entertainer Władziu Valentino Liberace ("Liberace"). Liberace once visited Rita in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and spent the afternoon with Rita and two of her friends. Rita later would say Liberace was one of the nicest men she had ever met. Liberace was a long-time entertainer on the Las Vegas circuit, known for his elaborate costumes. After his death on February 4, 1987, his fans operated a museum of his many costumes, pianos, cars, and other possessions. The museum closed in October 2010, but as of 2019 the Liberace Foundation continued to award scholarships.
