Rietta Lynn Squires 64 of White Pine, MI went to be with Jesus on June 21, 2022, at approximately 11:00pm EST, while at Wausau Aspirus Hospital.
She was born July 11, 1957 to Jay and Oleeta (Slocum) Whitman in Battle Creek, Michigan.
After graduation from Battle Creek Central she graduated from Kellogg Community College and then Western Michigan University Summa Cum Laude, with a Baccalaureate in Psychology.
Rietta enjoyed playing her piano, designing her ornamental gardens, fishing and rock hunting. What was most important to her, especially later in her life, was sharing how to be saved, through faith alone in Jesus Christ on the cross dying for our sins.
