Rita Owen Retires

After 17 years with the cooperative, you can’t fault billing specialist Rita Owen for feeling a little bittersweet about her retirement this month.

“I think I’m probably going to miss everything about this place,” she says. “It’s really become like a second home to me.”

Owen came to HomeWorks in 2001, after 15 years as a home daycare provider. At the time, she was ready for a new challenge, and the Westphalia native says she found that and more at the cooperative.
