Lita remembered her mom in a Noisecreep
interview: "My mom was my biggest fan. She never asked me where I went, or what I was doing, or who I was doing it with. She trusted me. My mom knew everybody. I remember she had a really thick Italian accent and she would say stuff like [puts on an Italian accent], 'Ah, that Alice Cooper. He's really nice. I like him a lot!'"
"She was awesome. We lived by the Long Beach Arena and everyone would come to my house after the shows to hang out. My mom had to be at work at 4:00 am, so she would leave at like 2:30 in the morning, just when I was coming home for the night. I would be reeking of cigarette smoke and alcohol and she wouldn't bug me about it. I was having such a great time back then. It was the '70s in Southern California. But yeah, mom was so open-minded about me and the stuff I was into."
