My name is Rita Devery.  I was born and raised on a dairy farm south of Menomonie. I come from a family of 7 children (6 girls and 1 boy). I currently live in Menomonie with my husband Mark who is a retired Dunn County Sheriff's Deputy. In July, we celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary.  We have two grown children. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, taking walks, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
