It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the peaceful passing of Rita Marie-Rose Faulkner (née Legault) with family by her side on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at Extendicare Falconbridge. Loving mother of Pauline Ricard (Yves), Claudette Gingras, Marc Gingras (Brenda) and stepmother to Kelly, Sherry and family. Born in Field, ON to the late Alphonse and Exilda Legault (née Larocque). Devoted grandma to Dominique, Eric (Marie Pier), Jacob, Melodie, Patrick (Helene) and great grandma to Jessie, Joey, Lukas, Léa-Jade. Sadly, missed by her siblings; Liette (Reuben), Rachelle (Emile), Roland and Robert (both predeceased), Armande (Scotty), Alice (Gerry), Leona (Bill), Hélene (Jean-Louis), Noella (Michel), Al (Sue), Gerard (Karen) and Suzette (Gilles). Lovingly remembered by her friends and extended family. Rita will be remembered for her loving personality, smile, her love to travel, golf, sunbathing and always being a big part of her family unit. A special thank you to the nurses, staff and especially the PSW’s who made Rita’s last days comfortable. And Leona for all your compassion, care, and memories that you made with mom. Something mom will never forget and cherished forever. In keeping with Rita’s wishes there will be no visitation or services. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made directly to the Alzheimer Society https://alzheimer.ca/sudburymanitoulin/en.
Rita, you will be missed very much. I remember all the good times we had in Florida, in Montreal, Sudbury and Barrie. I know that God wanted you be with him and our parents and brothers.

My most sincere condolences to Rita’s family and friends. I very well remember Rita, her parents and her brothers and sisters, having been 2-doors-down neighbors in Sturgeon Falls for a few years. Yes, and I do remember her lovely smile!
Thank you Noëlla for notifying me.
