Rita G. Wolfe, 68, of Kenosha, passed away on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at Hospice Alliance Hospice House.

Born in Milwaukee, on December 3, 1951, she was the daughter of Ralph and Mary Ann (Dantzman) Ciepluch.

On September 5, 1970, she married Raymond G. Wolfe. He preceded her in death on January 2, 2008.

Rita was a crafty woman who loved sewing and crocheting. Many of the items she made she gifted to friends and family and donated for those in need. She worked in the fabrics department at Jo Ann Fabrics and more recently, Walmart. Aside from crafts, she enjoyed visiting the casino and bowling. She will be remembered for her smiling face and cheerful demeanor.

Aside from her husband, Rita is preceded in death by her father, Ralph Ciepluch.

Services were held privately at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the following charities would be appreciated by the family: American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, American Kidney Fund, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, or the American Liver Foundation; but most of all – please consider becoming an organ donor.

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Rita. My deepest condolences to Rita's family and friends. I had the honor to care for Rita many times while she was is the TICU at Froedtert as her night nurse. Her fantastic smile always lit up the room. I will remember her smile and her kind personality. May she rest in peace.

Kim, Connie, Kelly, and Brian... I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was a wonderful person who taught me a lot about life, work, and most importantly, family. From the moment I met her (I was just 16 and very shy... but she changed that! at Joann's), to the last time I saw her (at Wal-Mart working her butt off of course) her eyes always lit up when she spoke of you guys. Her smile was contagious! I wish I could have spent more time with her the last few years but being wheelchair bound myself for several years now made it impossible for me. I had no idea things had taken a turn. She fought so hard to be there for the people she loved. The photos you all have posted are a wonderful tribute.

*Kim, if you'd like to get in touch, please do. Call/text 262-620-1826 or you can find me on facebook/messenger.

I always enjoyed talking with Rita. She loved her family , doing things with her hands, and smiling. She always had a smile. No matter what she was going through. She was always missed by customers when she wasn't at work for awhile. I will miss you Rita. Your positive attitude will be forever remembered. 😇💗 Donna Jo Dupree
