Loving mother of Sue (Joe) Sadowski, Pat Rees, Kathy Shea and Betsy Thiede. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. Predeceased by her former husband Gerry Hiscock who passed away on January 30, 2016.
Rita took great pride in her role as supervisor of Little Short Stop stores in the Kitchener - Waterloo area, where she retired after 39 years at the age of 78.
She was an avid baker and was quick to share her baked goods with all those she knew. Rita loved to crochet and there are many family, friends and colleagues that have one of her afghans. She was also an oil painter and again just another of her hobbies that she shared with others. Rita was especially proud of being a Lioness and helping with charities for many years.
Special thank you to the Doctors, nurses, student nurses and all the staff of St. Mary’s General Hospital for their very kind and compassionate care as well as her home care providers.
An extra special thanks to Rita’s closest friends who devoted their loving support and time throughout many years. We are truly grateful.
An open house will take place for family, friends and colleagues to Celebrate Rita’s life and share memories of Rita. It is to be held fittingly, on her birthday, Wednesday January 23, 2019 at the Army Navy & Airforce Veterans Club, 408 Gage Avenue from 1:00 -4:00 pm.
Donations may be made to a charity of choice, as expressions of sympathy. Messages and Condolences can be sent through tricitycremations.com
