Aunita S. Locastro



Aunita S. LoCastro, 81, passed away Monday morning, December 11, 2017, peacefully while spending time with her caregivers at Greendale Forest in Snow Hill.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Victor LoCastro of the home; her four children, Laurie L. Norris and husband, Ray of Kenly, Paul LoCastro and wife, Sandra of Asheville, Alyssia L. Kauffman of San Diego, CA, and Alane LoCastro of Glenwood Springs, CO; and 3 grandchildren, Anna Norris, Heather Hulit and Benjamin Norris.

“Miss Aunita”, as she was known in the community, was a very loving and active church member, Sunday School teacher, Methodist Women’s member, and participant in every circle club she could squeeze into her calendar. Loving to work in her flower garden, she was a Master Gardner. A consummate homemaker, she enjoyed cooking, especially for her family and friends, and took such joy in helping others. She was loved by all that had the pleasure of knowing her. Her family is comforted by the sustaining knowledge that she is eternally home; rest in peace Mom.

A Service of Death and Resurrection to celebrate her life will be held 2 PM Sunday, December 17, at Rainbow United Methodist Church with Reverend Patrick Keely officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the service.

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials in her memory to Rainbow UMC, c/o Ray Pridgen, 704 Greenridge Road, Snow Hill, NC 28580. Online condolences at
