Rita WEATHERBEE

Passed on: August 11th, 2017

Our beautiful Mother of 91 years (Nanny, Nana, Sister) passed away peacefully on Friday morning August 11, 2017 at the Northside Community Guest Home. She was predeceased by her parents Pasquale and Theresa (Massimello) Spinazzola and her loving husband of 68 years, Trueman.
Besides taking care of her five children, she worked at Archie Nathasons, Kmart, Weight Watchers and Swift Canadian. Rita was a very social and active person all of her life. At special functions, she was always the life of the party dancing the night away. Mom always enjoyed everything she did including line dancing, playing darts, aerobics, walking, and doing activities to stay fit until she was about 85 years old. Mom and Dad camped at Ben Eoin for more than 40 years. Rita resided for the last two years at the Northside Community Guest Home where she was cared for in a loving and respectful manner.
Mom will be forever loved and missed by her daughters, Carol Mitchell, Shirley Collins (Dennis), Evelyn (Greg) Baldwin and Judy Allen, and son, George (Donna), as well as her very special and caring nephew, Wayne Weatherbee. She will be missed by her sisters Mary Chicorelli, Ramona (Mabbie) Landry and Theresa (Alex) Ferguson, and brother, Patsy (Marilyn) Spinazzola (Smith). She is also survived by her 13 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.
Besides her parents and her husband Trueman, Rita was predeceased by sisters, Netta MacIsaac and Angelina DeGaust; brothers, Gino, Pordena, Pino and Orlando, and her sons-in-law, Gerry Collins and Howie Allen.
In keeping with her wishes, there will be family visitation only. Funeral service will take place Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 10 a.m. at St. Alban's Church with Rev. Reg MacDonald officiating. Interment in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens.
Memorials may be made to the Northside Community Guest Home or charity of choice.
