After growing up in Foleyet, she moved to the Sudbury area as a young adult and married Ed. For about 20 years, Rita worked for Canada Post. She was a past member of the CWL at Christ the King Church in Sudbury and also in Elliot Lake. In her healthier years, she enjoyed travelling the world, spending time at camp enjoying the great outdoors, long walks, skating and crossword puzzles. She will be remembered as a very caring family member, someone who was smart and had a great memory. She was often referred to as a walking encyclopedia of family history. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no visitation. Cremation at Lakeview Crematorium.
