It is with much sadness that the family of Rita Worger (Redmond) announces her passing at Peterborough Regional Health Centre at the age of 88.

Rita was the devoted wife to late husband Bill, and is sadly predeceased by daughter Anne (survived by Phil), as well as five brothers and sisters.

She was an amazing role model, and leaves beautiful memories for daughters Brenda (Jeff), Cathy (predeceased by Chris) and Lynn (Pete).

Lovingly remembered by brother Noel (Margaret) and sister Anne (Tony).

Rita’s greatest pride and joy was her family, especially the grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by Tiffany, Sarah, Christopher, Krista, Zachary, Kate and their partners. She was extremely proud Great Grandma to Leah and Paige, as well as Ciara, Klarysa and Mila. She was so pleased to learn of the recent birth of first great grandson Malakai. Her smile and love will live on through them.
Rita loved the outdoors, travel, dancing and singing, and was never without a dog or two. We’re sure she was met with wagging tails and wet kisses. Her buddy Flint misses her already.

She is fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews and their families, as well as her friends at both Applewood Retirement Residence and Lynde Creek Village.

Father Andrew Begin will deliver a family service at the Cathedral of St Peter in Chains, Peterborough. Interment will be at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery in Whitby at a later date.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Deepest sympathy to Brenda, Cathy and Lynn on the loss of your mom.
I have very fond memories of my Aunt Rita and the times we spent at Lake Simcoe and at your home on Main Street. Your mom was always welcoming, always smiling and laughing and all round fun to be with.
When we were young she opened her house on Phillip Avenue to look after Dianne, Frank and me when our brother Sean was born. It was crowded in that little house but we didn’t even notice!
And over the years as families go their separate ways, she always kept in touch and was delighted to see us and our own children.
A life well lived - she will be missed.
Maureen and Family xoxo

What I remember the most of my Aunt Rita was her beautiful smile and contagious laughter, which of course was also a big part of growing up with Brenda, Ann, Cathy and Lynn. She was also a very kind and loving woman who treated me and my siblings like we were her own children. She was always fun to be around and always interested in hearing your story. She had an engaging personality and was a great listener because of the basic respect and genuine compassion which she had for others. My Aunt Rita will always have a special place in my heart as I know I did in hers.

Hello every one,

My name is Frank Adams, though my Aunt Rita always called me Frankie. Myself, my siblings and my 4 Canadian cousins are the first generation of Canadians, whose parents came out of Belfast, to avoid discrimination and make a better life for us--their future children.

Because we were the sons and daughters of imigrants, we did not have a lot of extended family. So for me and my cousins it was just us--and we were tight. I actually had a few fights defending my cousin Ann and her sister Lynne, that they probably don't even know about. Back in the day when Ann was living with her father in a trailer park, I actually beat someone up because he was bothering my cousin.

Having said all that this memory wall is about My Aunt Rita. So continuing on with the theme of imigration because we were so few we didn't really have alot of adults around us. My memories since birth always includes my Uncle Johnny and Aunt Rita.

My Aunt Rita was always, and I mean always was very kind to me, as was her first husband, my Uncle Johnny. Her and her first husband, with help from my parents made me who I am. My 4 Canadian cousins had no small part in my forming my character, and though i hardly see them any more, and I can never see Ann again (except in my dreams) I truly love all of them.

There is so much more I can say about my Aunt, she came on the same boat as my mother. But know this my Aunt was well loved and loved well. The last time I saw her we danced at Uncle Johnny's funeral---a special memory of her, apart from her and

I love all my cousins, I love my Uncle Johnny and I love my Aunt Rita.

GOD BLESS cousin Frank
