Rita was born on June 26, 1935 to Alois and Cecelia (Thomalla) Mrosla on a farm near North Prairie. She grew up in North Prairie but lived a short time in Minneapolis where she worked at Honeywell. She later met the love of her life Jerome "Soupie" Vos and the couple was married on September 20, 1955 in North Prairie. After marriage the couple moved to Holdingford where she lived the rest of her life. Rita worked a variety of jobs starting with Honeywell at a young age, the Holdingford Herald, and eventually worked for the Holdingford School District where she worked until she retired. Rita loved to read, play bingo, go out to lunch with her family, and also loved her trips to the casinos. She was a member of The Church of All Saints Catholic Church-St. Mary.
