It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our deeply loved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. On June 25, 2020, at the age of 76, Rita left us peacefully with Rheal, her husband of 56 years by her side.
Rita will be lovingly remembered. She is the loving and devoted wife of Rheal Morissette and mother of Beatrice (Grant), Alice (Cam) and Lyne (Jonathan "Johnboy"). The center of Rita's world were her six grandchildren, Cass, Tiffany, Karlee, Kassee, Bronwyn and Lyrin. She was so proud of her five great-grandchildren, Jayden, Nicholas, Nathaniel, Alyson and Jase. She is also survived by siblings, Tess, Norman, Alice, Yvonne and Lillian. Rita was predeceased by her baby grandson David; parents, Clem and Aurore Coss; and brothers, Eugene and Leon.
A celebration of Rita's life will be held at the Powerview Catholic Church when Manitoba Health Restrictions have lifted.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
