Obituary

It is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of our loving Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandma Rita Desrochers at the age of 90, at the Englehart District Hospital on Wednesday February 12th, 2020.

I have lost a good friend with whom I enjoyed many CWL conventions and birthday celebrations, the last being her 90th. Rest in peace until we meet again on the other side.
