Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My deepest condolences to the family, she will be missed by all. Rita was a very good friend. I couldn't ask for any better, I'd be there when she called, and she'd be there for me. She had a gift off making many of dish cloths , tea towels.. We went to bingo several times on Archiblad Ave. I went to go visit her one evening and she wasn't home, at that time I thought was odd, so I decided to check St Boniface hospital sure enough my instincts were right, she was there and she said how did you know i was here? I said I just knew,but she was ok and went home shortly there after. I will miss her dearly. Thank-you Pauline for letting me be a part via zoom to her service. - Posted by: connie l ducharme (Friend) on: Feb 03, 2021
