Rita Spriggs - 1963
Bio & Picture from 40th Reunion


Rita Spriggs McGlothlin - 2003-08-07

I was born in Hannibal, Misssouri, and moved to Columbia in 1960, mid way through my sophmore year.  After graduating I married my first husband, Gary Cockrell, and moved to Charleston, S. C. and lived there until 1965 and moved back to Columbia.

My first daughter, Tammy, was born in Charleston and my second daughter, Teri, was born in Columbia in 1969.


We moved to Kansas City in 1972 and I divorced in 1977.

I married Ken in 1983 and he worked for TWA airlines for 33 years until retiring in 2001.  We still live in Kansas City.

Now that Ken has retired we enjoy traveling and just kicking back.  Ken had three sons and we have eight grandchildren.  We enjoy our family and friends!

Hope the Reunnion is a success
Have fun and enjoy.
