One autumn day, Lynn Sr. proposed to Rita and they got married. Rita was given a vase from her aunt Ruth as a wedding gift however, she disliked it.
Rita got pregnant with their first daughter, Lori. While pregnant with Lori, Rita and Lynn Sr. had signed their first child up for daycare in hopes of getting Lori registered but ended up on the waiting list for 17 years.
During Lori's infancy, Rita and Lynn Sr. almost ended up not having anymore kids due to Lori's toy, Fenton, driving them crazy. They eventually hid Fenton in the attic around the time their second daughter, Leni, was born.
As time went on, she would give birth to threemoredaughters. Two years after the birth of their fifth daughter, Rita gave birth to their first and only son, Lincoln. In the following years, she would give birth to up five more girls: Lucy, twins Lana and Lola, Lisa, and finally Lily, now having 11 kids in total.
At some point Rita and Lynn Sr. had to separate in their marriage, due to the latter catching mono from a contaminated microphone. She once got very furious with Lynn Sr. when he forgot their anniversary.
Rita is caring towards her children, but is not afraid to punish them if they go too far. She and her husband act playfully romantic towards each other, though she is apparently more level-headed than him. An example of this is when she's concerned about Lincoln playing video games too much and tells him to do some sport outside in "The Loudest Yard".
Rita is an aspiring novelist, but initially seemed to lack a creative side. Prior to "A Novel Idea", her novel was about a bored dental assistant talking to her fish, based on her own experiences, before being inspired by Lincoln to write about a thrill seeker with white hair, based on his own adventures.
The films have demonstrated that Rita can make big decisions from realizing just one detail. In The Loud House Movie, she agreed to move to Scotland only from Lincoln mentioning how their house in Royal Woods has only one bathroom, and in A Loud House Christmas, she agreed to chase down the Sharkodile only because it had picked up the Christmas decorations she put on the front of the house.
When you’re a mom to eleven kids, you tend to wear many different hats. Rita is organized and keeps the family running like a well-oiled machine. She’s always ready to jump into action during a crisis. When she’s not wrangling everyone together, she writes a column for the Royal Woods Gazette.
Rita wears a salmon buttoned shirt with a white collar and cuffs, dark mauve pants and black flats. She has medium length blonde hair and white earrings. She also wears light blue eyeshadow and red lipstick. She has bags under her eyes, just like Lincoln.
In her teenage years, she wore a multicolored hoodie, a yellow plaid skirt similar to Luan's, blue sneakers, white large earrings and her blonde hair was tied back into a large ponytail held by a blue scrunchie. She also had freckles.
Around the time Rita was pregnant with Lincoln, her hair was much longer. She wore a salmon shirt, mauve brown pants and black flats.
