TWEDDLE, Rita

Rita Tweddle

Rita celebrated her 90th birthday on September 2nd and passed away on September 23rd.

She was a Yorkshire lass who immigrated to Canada with her husband nearly 50 years ago, bringing her famous mushy peas recipe with her.
Her two sons also immigrated to Canada and gave her four grandchildren to love and cherish. In recent years she also had the chance to love and cherish two great granddaughters.

A much travelled woman with a penchant for shoes and purses, she enjoyed company and outings well into her elder years. Her coffee ladies were a great source of support after losing her husband and continued to be a great source of friendship and entertainment afterwards, as well.

Many thanks to Doctor Rustad and all the health care supporters that allowed us to care for her in our home. She will be missed by all who knew her.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to one of her favourite charities:
