With profound sadness we share the passing of Rita MacIsaac at the age of 76 years. Rita was the most amazing Mom and Nana and spent her final months with her daughters Darlene and Tracy (Roy) and grandchildren Jake and Ella.
She loved her home in the beautiful Codroy Valley, Newfoundland. She will be greatly missed by her brother Jerome (Petrina), sisters Jean (Eddie), Bridget and Tilly. She was predeceased by her parents Annie and Benedict as well as brothers Ed, Allan, Vince, Gerard and Joseph and sisters Marie, Margaret and Geraldine. She was loved by her large extended family and many wonderful friends.
She was extremely kind and never hesitated to help others. She had a heart of gold and a wonderful sense of humor. She loved playing darts and nothing made her happier than a good game of cards. She enjoyed the outdoors, taking her grandchildren to the beach and camping where wonderful memories were made over the years.
Rita showed true determination and courage as she went through chemotherapy, surgery and a recurrence of cancer. Many thanks to the care teams in Port-Aux-Basques and St. John's NL and Oakville ON as well as the Halton Community Palliative Care Team. As per her wishes, Rita was cremated and her funeral service will be held at St. Ann’s Parish in Codroy Valley, NL on May 20 at 10 am.
