Rita Theresa Stadick was born April 24, 1934 in West Newton Township to Joseph and Leona (Ranweiler) Stadick. On February 21, 1952, she was united in marriage to Wilbert Linsmeier at St. Willibrord’s Catholic Church in Gibbon. The couple was blessed with four children whom together they raised on their farm near Wabasso. Along with raising her children, Rita also spent time working as a nurse’s aide at the Wabasso Nursing Home and as a kitchen aide at St. Anne’s School in Wabasso. In her free time, Rita enjoyed gardening, tending to her flowers, and trying out new cooking and baking recipes for Wilbert to try. She especially enjoyed being with her family and her little grandchildren, great grands, and great-great-grandchild. Rita will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Blessed be her memory
