She attended Saint Mary’s school in Kirby. In 1948 she married Charles D. Reinhart and they later divorced. Rita retired from Autolite in Fostoria after 30 years of service. She was a member of UAW local 533.
Rita was known for being hard working and family focused. Never one to sit idle, an absolute ball of energy, always wanting to live life to the fullest!! She taught all her children how to play cards and enjoy time together, which continued with each generation. She spent marathon weekends with family playing cards/games and rarely EVER lost to her children.
She loved any kind of family get together. Christmas was very special for Rita. She took great joy in having a personalized gift for each family member (well over 100+ people).
Rita also enjoyed yearly trips to Las Vegas with her family for 40+ years, beginning back in 1979. In her later years she was honored and thrilled to travel to Las Vegas via private jet!!
Family was everything to Rita. Her greatest priority in life was caring for and loving her special daughter Kelly Lynn.
