Rita “Reetz” Marie Frasher of Juneau found peace on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at the age of 89 years. She was born June 26, 1931 in Fergus Falls, MN, the daughter of Daniel and Victoria (nee Burniche) Peltier. She enjoyed knitting, sewing, and quilting, and family members were the recipients of her special creations. Rita was a voracious reader of historical romance novels. She loved ‘dem Packers.’ Rita liked to go camping with her family, and she retired from Clearview Nursing Home after many years of service. “She loved to care for people.” The family extends a special thank-you to the staff of Clearview Nursing Home for their awesome care of their mother.
She is survived by her loving children, Michael (Barbara) Rooney of Juneau, Steven Rooney of Oconomowoc, Sandra (Richard) Boyer of Fredonia, Mercedes (Allen) Haecker of Fredonia, Homer Frasher of Beaver Dam, Jamey Frasher of Juneau, and Vincent (Valorie) Frasher of Horicon, and by 15 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. She is survived by one sister, Marian Baumgarten, and her best friend, Carol Jean McDowell. Also surviving are other relatives and friends. Rita is preceded in death by her husbands, Donald Rooney and Ralph Frasher, Jr., and her children, Baby Jane, Florentine, and David, and 19 brothers and sisters.
Private services will be held.
