Rita A. Kometh
Bay City, Michigan
Rita passed away Sunday, September 22, 2019 at Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital, age 71. She was born December 22, 1947 in Bay City, Michigan to the late Raymond and Evelyn (Roznowski) Wojciechowski. Rita married James I. Kometh in St. Stanislaus Kostka Church on August 15, 1970 and he survives her. She started her career at Mercy Hospital and later transitioned to St. Mary’s Hospital in the Microbiology Lab. Rita was a member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish-St. Stanislaus Church, where she was a Eucharistic Minister, Lecturer, Greeter and volunteer at the funeral luncheons. She enjoyed traveling, puzzling, University of Michigan football and most importantly loved every precious moment being “Grandma Rita”.

Rita was predeceased by two brothers, Daniel and Gary Wojciechowski and her mother and father-in-law, Florence and Irving Kometh.
Rita's family would like to thank all of her work colleagues from years past at Mercy Hospital and most recently St. Mary's Hospital for their wonderful friendships. She always felt like you were all part of her family and she was a part of yours as well.
