Honorita "Rita" Ann (Widhalm) Micek passed into eternal life on November 23, 2017. Rita spent her final years at Prairie Village and final days surrounded by family at Brookstone Acres. She entered her eternal reward on Thanksgiving morning.

Rita was born on August 4, 1929 to Fred and Belle (Nosal) Widhalm in St. Bernard, NE. Her father passed away when Rita was three years old, after which she lived with her Grandmother, Anna Nosal, while her mother pursued employment in Omaha, NE. Rita attended grade school in Tarnov, NE and graduated from Humphrey St. Francis High School. Rita and Frank Micek were married on August 16, 1949 at St. Anthony's Parish. God blessed their union with eight children. Rita was blessed with 22 grandchildren, whom she lovingly prayed for and encouraged in their individual endeavors. Her 35 great-grandchildren brought her much joy as she watched her family grow. Fellow employees at Gibsons, Jarold Shop, Vishays, Northstar in Columbus and the Beatrice State Home not only respected her work ethic but also found a true friend. Rita's respect for the dignity of all people was evident in how she cared for her clients. Whether it be her trips to the theater, attending local music events or quick stops at Simon House and garage sales, Rita was never one to sit at home. She enjoyed tending to her flowers and garden, cheering for the Huskers and found much amusement in the annual family reunion. An avid card player, Rita played weekly games with her card circles and family until her final days. We loved her and will miss her dearly.

She is survived by her eight children; Charlotte (Paul) Beran, Anita (Russ) Aguilar, Karen (Dave) Maurstad, Kurt (Chrissy) Micek, Janet (Brian) Kleveland, Gary (Kaye) Micek, Jon (fiance' Cindy) Micek and Brian (Jeanne) Micek; 22 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren sister Joan Belitz; sister-in-law and brother-in-law MaryAnn and Ed Donatelli; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jerry and Sherri Micek; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Rita was preceded in death by her parents; father and mother in-law Barney and Dora Micek; her husband; sister Patrice Gurnon; brother Ron Staskiewicz; son-in-law Ken Mino; sister-in-laws Alice Hoff and Carolyn Micek; brother-in-laws Jim Micek Fr. Sylvester Micek and Chester Micek; grandmother Anna Nosal; special uncle Lonnie Nosal; other aunts and uncles; nephew Terry Micek.

Honoring Rita's wishes, memorials directed to St. Anthony Church and School and Columbus Right to Life.
