Rita Uhrich

February 10, 1929 — February 6, 2023

Langdon, ND


   Rita Uhrich, 93, of Wales and Langdon, ND, passed away Monday, February 6, 2023, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon, ND.

   Rita grew up on the family farm just north of Dresden, the youngest of 14 children. She attended school at St. Alphonsus, graduating from high school in 1947. Rita married Gibson Uhrich at Holy Trinity Church in Dresden in October of 1953. Gib and Rita made their home at the Hiltner farm until 1961 when they moved into Wales. They continued to make their home in Wales until Gib’s death in 2012 when Rita moved to Langdon.

   Rita will be remembered for her amazing cinnamon rolls (with raisins) and her many beautiful quilts. She always enjoyed when family gathered and, even in her later years, would usually be one of the last to leave the fun and go to bed. Some of the grandchildren will attest to her competitive game play regardless the age of her opponents. 😊

   Rita is survived by her children: Sally (Dwayne), Daryl, Jeanne (Bob) and daughter-in-law, Kathy; 10 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, parents, siblings, and son Dale.

   Mass of Christian Burial will be at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at St. Alphonsus Church in Langdon, ND. Visitation will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, February 13, 2023, at Brooks Funeral Home in Langdon. Burial will be in the spring at St. Michael Cemetery in Wales, ND.
