elevated 0fVOq It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Rita Dubeau, who died peacefully on October 19, 2021 at 91 years of age. Rita, mom or Nan, Nanny, Grandma, and Même, as she was known by her legion of grandkids, lived a life devoted to her family, who she loved with all her heart.
elevated 0fVOq Born in Montreal on November 2, 1929 as Rita Lize-Hum, she moved to Toronto at twelve years of age. 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.
