Her involvement in 4-H, her love for clogging, and her prowess in sports such as tennis, golf, and pickleball showcased her vibrant spirit and zest for life. Rita believed in the importance of staying active, both mentally and physically, and she walked 2 miles every day with dedication and joy.

Rita is survived by her devoted children: Marian (Tom) Galson of Neenah, WI, Marie DeShaney of Minocqua, WI, and Scott Muhne of Chicago, IL. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bruno in 2004, her parents, Joseph and Mary, and her beloved daughter, Cathy Moriarity.
