Rita was born on April 15, 1929 in Maasdijk, Netherlands in a family of 6 brothers and 1 sister, Rita being the fourth oldest. Rita died on August 13, 2021 at Valley Haven at the age of 92.
Mom never worked outside the home, but she knew how to stretch a dollar. She always had room for family, friends and gardening. Rita was a member with the Catholic Women’s League for a large number of years.

We would like to thank the care staff at Valley Haven Retirement Home in Chilliwack for the care mom had in her last year.
