I was really fortunate to know you and work with you those 13 years at Sharp Elect. You became my second mom and I was so touched to be considered as your second daughter. I will miss you. Rest in peace. Love you.
Mireille XOXO

Wayne and Gail,
So sorry for your loss. Last spoke to Rita at my brother's wedding almost 20 years ago, and was amazed at how many memories she had of our childhood. A truly delightful woman to be around.
All the best to you and your family.
Brian

Rita was so happy to have her 90th birthday celebrated spread out over several days of phone calls and visits, loving every minute. Those long distance phone calls and flowers sent really brightened up her day. She always said she wanted to make it to 90 years old and she sure did.

The house is very quiet without her living here with us anymore. Even our two dogs keep looking for her. We are so glad she came and lived with us and enjoyed company, going in the garden and walking around outside.

We miss you Mom but know you are at peace

She loved her family photos so much and I remember how happy she was when we had this one done.
Nana, you have joined all your fellow angels above and I know you are now one of them that will always watch over us. Love you xox

Nana Rita, you will be dearly missed by both Trevor and I. We were so very fortunate to have had you in our lives, to be part of your extended family. Celebrations will not be the same without you. We will miss your beautiful happy smile and your joyful spirit. You were such a genuine and kind person and we loved you very much. Rest in Peace with the angels that have watched over you all these years. xoxo

The stars are shining brighter with you up there, Nana.

None of us were ready for this moment. With time, our hearts will heal, but we promise to keep your memory alive. We promise to take care of your babies. We promise to show them your photos and make sure they know where they got their baby blues from.

Keep on shining for us Nana, we love you.

She loved her great-grandchildren so much. She called them HER babies and wouldn’t say hi to anyone else until she got to hold them. Family was her everything.

One of the lessons Nana shared with me was to make sure to nurture your relationships with your girlfriends. She told me they will be the ones who will always be there for you and to make you laugh. That is why she cherished her weekly ladies brunch so much.

Nana was young at heart and always ready to jump in and play with her grandkids - I remember her suiting up to get in the pool with us. Even at 90, she was playing with knights and dragons with Benjamin ❤️
