May 20, 1950 - September 26, 2020
Mrs. Rita Jo Reichenbach (formerly Fromherz) died peacefully on September 26, 2020 in Bismarck, North Dakota at the age of 70. Rita was born on May 20, 1950 in Portland, Oregon to Joseph and Margaret Fromherz. She married Roy Reichenbach in Oregon in 1976 and soon thereafter moved to Douglas, Wyoming and started a family. Rita and Roy later moved to Cheyenne, WY. After Roy passed away Rita relocated to Bismarck, North Dakota to spend time with her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren. Rita was an accomplished artist and often shared her love of art with others through paintings, drawings, and cards. She was a caring individual who was passionate about spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed sharing good food, long visits with friends, and dancing. She was a truly thoughtful friend to many and was well known for kind words and good deeds for friends and strangers alike. Rita is survived by her daughter, Margaret (Ryan) Rayda and two grandaughters, Isobel and Harriet of Mandan, ND; her step-mother, Margie Fromherz of Salem, OR, her siblings, Allen (Robin) Fromherz of Dallas, OR, Frank (Bridget) Fromherz of Yamhill, OR, Rose (Kevin) Lucas of Stevenson, WA, Barb (Steven) Guarracino of Phoenix, AZ, Sylvia (Andy) Sharp of Midland, MI, Louis (Patricia) Fromherz of Park River, ND, John Fromherz of Salem, OR, Paul Fromherz of Salem, OR, Matt (Karen) Fromherz of Ellensburg, WA, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Joseph Reichenbach, father, Adolph Joseph Fromherz, mother, Margaret Mary Fromherz (De Ryke), and her sister, Marie Therese Fromherz. The family asks that for memorial purposes, you call a friend or relative you have lost touch with or get takeout with someone that you know is lonely. Connect and share kindness; Rita would be gladdened to bring that to others. Funeral Service and Burial in Woodburn will be postponed until it is safe to travel and gather. Rita passed from Covid infection, and the last thing we want to do is possibly infect anyone else while trying to say goodbye to her.
