Our Mummy met Daddy in Ottawa in 1945; they were married in Montréal and moved to England as Daddy was still in the British Army. In 1953 they returned to Canada. They lived happily in Greenfield Park. Mummy and Daddy were committed members of St. Mary's Parish, and they were involved with HOPE and Meals on Wheels.

Sincere thanks to all the staff at Résidence Mont-Royal, who have lovingly cared for Mummy since 2003.

Mummy lived her life walking in goodness, humility, and grace. To remember Rita joyfully, you may like to volunteer at your local Meals on Wheels, or donate to St. Mary's Parish, Greenfield Park. Be kind to others.
