Rita Reichardt and her husband are newlyweds! They have been married for just three years. Both of them grew up in New Jersey just fifteen miles apart but didn’t know each other until meeting here in Highlands Ranch. Rita lived in Somerville, New Jersey, attended Rutgers, then moved to Colorado due to an employment transfer in 1971. She has a daughter who lives in Weld County and a son who still lives in New Jersey on the shore.
Rita uses shorthand and has found that it pays off. She has used it in jobs, and it comes in handy when she does volunteer work – usually as the secretary for organizations she belongs to. She does a lot of volunteering, and works most events at the rec center. She was an employee of Highlands Ranch Community Association for over ten years. Prior to that she worked in the Tech Center. Some of her volunteer secretary positions were at the condo associations where she lived, and with the Douglas County Quarter Horse Association.
Rita loves animals and loves to be busy. She used to train and show Quarter Horses and was a 4-H and Pony Club leader. She also has taught Tole painting classes. Rita's other interests include crafts and crocheting. Rita has also been a long-time member of a Senior Hiking Club.
