Rita was born on July 2, 1928, near Loup City in Sherman County, the eldest daughter of eight, to Andrew M. and Gertrude (Krolikowski) Waskowiak. She attended Schaupps country school and St. Francis parochial school in Ashton. She graduated from Loup City High School in 1946. She then taught country school north of Ashton for two years. She was united in marriage to Paul Gorecki on June 1, 1948, at St. Josaphat's Catholic Church in Loup City. The couple farmed near Farwell. They later moved to Lexington for a year before returning to a farm north of Farwell. In 1991, the couple moved into Farwell. Paul died on June 22, 2008, and Rita continued to live in her home until October of this year, when she moved to Brookefield Park. She was member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church and its Council of Catholic Women. She also belonged to a monthly card club and breakfast group in Farwell. Rita loved to cook and entertain for her family and friends. She enjoyed baking kolaches, watching “Wheel of Fortune” and praying the rosary several times a day. Rita loved her two granddaughters, but her grandson, Andrew, held a very special place in her heart. She is survived by her daughter, Marge Krings of Columbus; son and daughter-in-law, Don and Kathy Gorecki of Farwell; grandchildren, Amanda and Tony DeLancey of Columbus, Laura and T.J.
