Our deepest condolences to all of your families.
We have so many wonderful memories with Rita. We were neighbours for eight years and we shared happy and sad times together.
I loved hearing her stories about what the neighbourhood and the surrounding area was like in the past and how she loved to roller skate up and down the hills! She was always positive, so full of life and with a warm smile on her face. We will truly miss her but we will always remember the amazing woman that she was.
Love, Isabel, Joe, Lucas and Allegra Dovizio
