Rita Yvonne Jacques was born on July 29, 1935 in Decatur, IL to Ernest and Signe Schwarm. She met Greg Jacques in 1952 and married him in 1955. They were married for 58 years and together for 61 until Greg passed away in 2013. Rita passed away on July 6, 2017 of natural causes.
Rita loved her Mariners and her Yankees and especially her Trailblazers. She loved even more gathering the family together and making way more good food than we could possibly eat.
She is survived by two sons, Doug and Chris; three granddaughters, Brandi, Brittani and Amy; and two great granddaughters, Autumn and Adeline.
