Faye Heitk In the year 1960, Rita graduated from Marion Local High School with her high school diploma.
After completing her studies and earning her diploma, she began working for Celina Group as a secretary. Upon their marriage, she pitched in to help her new husband run the dairy farm that they owned together. In addition to this, she began working there on the side when the business was still operating under the name Suchland’s Flowers & Greenhouse. Rita was a babysitter when she wasn’t doing other things with her time. It is probable that the job she had at the Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen was the one that she appreciated the most during the period that she worked there.
There, she enjoyed the privilege of making the acquaintance of a very big number of new individuals and extending her greetings to them. It was well known that she gave a warm grin to everyone that she came into contact with. She was absolutely beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. The time that she was able to spend with her children and grandkids was something that she held in the highest regard. The visits, the stories, the laughs, and of course the cookies and snacks that were always provided. Everyone is going to terribly miss having her around.
Maria Stein also claimed that Rita was a member of the Ladies Sodality at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, which the latter was a place of worship that she frequently visited. The memorial service, also known as a Mass of Christian Burial, will be held at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Maria Stein on Saturday, March 18, 2023, at 10:30 AM.
