Rita M. Witkowski, age 83, of Almond, passed away peacefully, Monday morning, November 27, 2017 at her home with her family at her side.

She was born May 23, 1934 in Milwaukee, the daughter of Alice and Bernard Switalski.  She married Marion L. Witkowski on August 27, 1966 in Milwaukee.

Rita and Marion moved to Ellis, Wisconsin where they ran the Dew Drop Inn for three years.  They then moved to Almond where Rita enjoyed various part-time jobs until retiring.  Rita was an active member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church, regularly sharing her love of people as a greeter before mass.  Her greatest enjoyment of all, was spending time with her family.
