It is with heavy hearts, we announce that Rita passed away from a brief battle with cancer on October 21, 2022 at Riverview Health Centre at the age of 60 years.
She was predeceased by her father Claude Bouchard, she leaves to cherish her memory; her mother Florence Bouchard (née Desrochers), sister Louise (Tom), brothers Roger (Helene), Gilbert (Jacqueline) and nieces and nephews, Nicole, Raymond, Carolyn, Daniel, Joanne.
Rita was a devout catholic and loved God above all else. She spread his love and work by volunteering at various organizations throughout the city with Florence (Mom) giving of herself and time to help, comfort and reassure everyone she could by sharing Gods love and word, she truly lived by Jesus example.
Rita was very outgoing and not afraid to venture out on her own. In 1993 she moved to Radway to attend Bible College and grow in her faith. She then moved to Edmonton and worked for many years at the convent cooking for the nuns and enriching her spiritual growth further.
She lived in Edmonton for several years, where she created ties with many friends with whom she never lost touch. She returned home to Winnipeg and her family after her Dad’s passing.
We will miss her smiling face every time we get together as a family… at Christmas, Easter and all our family events and gatherings.
Rita we are so grateful for the time God gave you to us in this life. By the example you lived your life, you are most deserving of all God’s blessing and graces. We pray that God embraces you in his love and keeps you until we see you again.
