September 2, 2019.
Rhoda was born November 18, 1928 in
Winnipeg, where she lived her entire life.
She is survived by her children, Wendy Dashwood (Dave), grandchildren, Robyn
(Roman), Bevan and Paul (Elyse) and great-grandchild Gideon; Norman Davies (Karen), grandchildren, Eric and Brent; and son-in-law Patrick Kasper, grandchildren, Mackenzie Burling (Alan); and Danielle Doering (Tom), grandchildren, Zoey and Leo.
She is predeceased by her parents, Norman and Annie; siblings, Anne Stanford, Mary Moreau and Hugh MacKenzie; and beloved daughter Valerie Kasper.
Rhoda was employed with the Canadian Wheat Board until she was pregnant when she was dismissed with a gift of luggage (as was the custom). She later enjoyed a variety of volunteer positions at hospital, city employee retiree board and with the fire department. She also enjoyed working at Stage West.
She loved being around family and friends and had an active social life. She maintained life-long "girls clubs," keeping in close touch with school and curling friends. She had many interests including synchronized
swimming, hat making, curling and
socializing at the local legion. Her interest in being active and socializing never diminished even to her last days. She participated
enthusiastically in all activities including
bingo, art therapy, music and visits with local schoolchildren.
The family thanks all of the staff and friends at Riverview for many happy years especially Katherine Ruminski who ensured she made it to all of the activities which she enjoyed.
A Celebration of Life will be held on
Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard, Winnipeg.
