Mrs. Clare was a trusted crossing guard & friend to my children. They refused to cross that road if Mrs. Clare wasn’t there. She was an important part of their school family. We often think of her when we pass Lloyd Rice.😔. The Frank Family

I remember Rita from her place in the parking lot at Nouvel Horizon when my grandchildren were students there. She was a favourite of my husband's - he remembered her from high school. Jim enjoyed having a brief chat with "Boop" every time he called for the grandchildren after school. A lovely, smiling lady who will be missed. Sincere condolances.

Although we have only know Boop over the last few years through our Holy Trinity Anglican Church, we came to adore her. She always had a beautiful spirit and strength of character, that we so admired. To her loving family, we extend our deepest sympathy. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers on this sad day. Laurie Kukulewich and Glen Dodwell
