Rita will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. Rita worked beside Roman helping with the family business. She demonstrated her care for others by knitting endless lap blankets and baby blankets for those in need. Rita was the life of the party. She loved camping on the St. Croix, life at the lake, spending winters in Arizona, praying the rosary, gathering with family and friends, and always balancing the checkbook to the penny.
