Our beloved mother, Rita Agnes Wernek, passed away Aug 18, 2020 at the age of

Rita had six children, but was a mother to everyone. She considered everyone her
family. She was quite the social butterfly, and would speak to everyone in stores,
on the street, everywhere she went.

Rita always felt she should tell people if they were beautiful or handsome or if
their eyes were pretty or how she loved their smile or their wonderful personality
or that they had a special sparkle about them. She would continuously say kind
things to the people she met, as she felt it was important that they knew. She
made so many people happy and was truly genuine and a caring, loving woman.

If someone was having a rough day, they wouldn’t for long, as she was always
giving heartfelt compliments. It came naturally to her and gave her joy. She was
never embarrassed or thought it odd to compliment someone she never met
before. This was who she was.

Friends of Rita’s children always asked that Rita accompany them to their
activities; they loved her too. Rita’s passing was a great loss to her family but,
also, to so many others she touched along the way.

Rita had a beautiful voice. She loved to sing, whether it be to her children waking
up to a songbird or participating in church choirs. She also loved to dance. Rita
met her husband, Stanley, in a dance hall, and it was a joy to watch them dance
together. After Stanley passed, the music didn’t stop. Rita was on the dance floor
at parties, picnics, wherever there was music, no matter her age. She loved the
song, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams and would request it at all functions. That
song fit her to a “T”; she was truly Happy!

Rita was an amazing woman, truly loved by all. Our blessed Savior took her to
heaven to continue spreading joy, love and happiness. She’s now singing and
dancing with Our Father the Almighty.

Love you mom, with all our hearts. Pray that we will be with you one day. You
will live forever in our hearts.

Your children,

Bruce, Scott, Carol, David, Robert & John
