As a teenager, Rita began work at St. Michael’s Hospital, where she met, fell in love with, and married Lorne Dubeau, despite an engagement ring out of a cracker jack box. Married on September 14, 1946, they spent a lifetime together; they were married for seventy-four years, having nine children, losing two babies and raising seven. Rita, who adored her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, leaves behind a legacy of a family stretching generations.
