Marlene, Robert, Bonnie, John and others.
I am happy to have met Reta through my fundraising for the SO. I'll always remember the day of collecting bottles at the beer store when she approached me and asked if I was older than her. I didn't know how to politely answer so I asked her what her age was and then replied that she was 3 years older. I'll miss her.

Marlene, Robert and families : our sincere sympathy is extended to you on the loss of your sister Reta. We both have fond
memories of seeing Reta around Atwood and her love of "chatting". She always had a smile on her face and a warm welcome.
May she now be at peace.

To Robert and Marline and your extended families my deepest sympathy. Rita was a very good friend and local companion in our growing's up in Atwood.
I have many fond memories of her and my dad Stew having conversations around the kitchen table.
I remember a particular day when we (all of us) broke every window out of Garfield Horns workshop.
Rita lead the parade of us throwing stones at the glass windows to get us all started.
Boy oh Boy did we catch the devil, another life lesson learned for sure.
She was such an innocent soul, full of life and conversation.
