Obituary

Rita Ann Schow, 82, passed away peacefully Monday, December 16, 2019, in Arlington, Texas.

Visitation for family and friends will be 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon. on Friday, January 3, 2020 at Wade Family Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington, 76013.
Services to celebrate the lives of Rita and Don will follow at 12:00 noon.
Burial will be at Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, Texas, 75211 at 2:30 p.m.

She was born in Honey Grove, Texas, on May 25, 1937, to Mattie Ellen and Robert Wagner.

She married the love of her life, Don Schow, when she was 16 and he was 17 on August 17, 1953. They recently celebrated 66 years of marriage before he passed away unexpectedly on October 22, 2019.

Never having children of their own, Aunt Rita and Uncle Don were the ones their many nieces and nephews treasured, especially niece Jackie Falls, who was fortunate to have lived with them during her high school years.

Rita and Don loved to travel out West, especially to Las Vegas where she was often "lady luck", hitting several jackpots in slot machine competitions. If she wasn’t there, the two of them could be found on hunting trips with family every deer and dove season.

She loved the Lord and her family, especially her Mother and Dad, Albert “Pop” Wickler, who raised her; and her sister, Viola Kageler, who preceded her in death.

Survivors include sister, Juanita Conway, brothers Albert Wickler, Jr. and Danny Wickler, as well as Bobby Kageler, her brother-in- law and Joy Pearce, her sister-in-law.

The family would like to thank the staff of Arlington Residence and Rehabilitation for the wonderful care she received during her final months.
