May 30, 1932 – July 5, 2014
Rita passed away peacefully in her home in the early hours of Saturday morning. She will forever be missed by her family and friends.
She leaves behind her sons Peter (Ginger) and Mike (Kathleen), grandchildren Tyler (Cortney), Jordan (Kerry), Kendall, Hudson, Kasey, and Mackenzie and great-grand baby Elodie.
She will also be missed by her sisters Joan, Anne and Tina, as well as their families.
Born in Sydenham, county of London, England. Rita immigrated to Canada in 1958 with her husband Pete and two small boys, Peter and Michael. They began a new life in Toronto, Ontario and migrated west to Vancouver in 1964, where they settled and raised their family. For her last fifteen years she called the beautiful Comox Valley home.
A service will be held at the Comox Legion on a date yet to be determined.
“Not forever can one enjoy stillness and peace.
But misfortune and destruction are not final.
When the grass has been burnt
By the fire of the steppe,
It will grow anew in summer.”
Wisdom from the Mongolian Steppe.
