By the time you read this, the Princess will have left the Castle.
Rheta wanted to thank all that came to see her over the past year.
She leaves behind her cherished husband Dennis, the four sons to which she was devoted, Scott, Brent, Jay and Kyle, and their wives, whom she loved as though they were her own daughters.
And she treasured the endless happy times with thirteen of the world’s best grandchildren.
She shared her gifts of humility and generosity with her nine beloved siblings, and a great number of nieces and nephews will remember her loving spirit.
Proud of her humble beginnings, she was always welcoming and giving. Rheta believed that the country was the best place to raise children, and was no stranger to hard work both in her career as a homemaker and her involvement with the family businesses.
Some of her fondest memories included backyard pool parties and summer weekends at the family cottage hosting many great friends and relatives.
As her boys became more independent, she and Dennis traveled throughout the world creating great memories with loved ones.
She nurtured the joy and love of her grandchildren, and annual family gatherings at Great Wolf Lodge were enjoyed by all.
Rheta was deeply loved and her compassion will live on.
Cremation has taken place. For those wishing to express condolences through a donation, Rheta's favourite charity was Operation Smile Canada.
The family will be holding a private internment ceremony at Parkview Cemetery on Saturday.
