“The Song is ended but the Melody Lingers On”

Rita passed away peacefully in the early morning of August 5, 2014 in her 84th year. Rita was not alone on her final journey; Brenda & Alison were by her side. Loved forever by: her children David Lalik & Brenda Trainor; their spouses Julie & Niall; her 4 adored grandchildren Jared & Dustin, Shawn & Alison; her devoted brother Alex Dancs & wife Shirley; 5 nieces & 1 nephew & their children. Rita is predeceased by her husband Desmond, her brother Zoli & his wife Tibby. Rita will be lovingly remembered by many other close family & friends spanning the world. In a recent moment of reflection Rita stated that she had “lived a good life”. We love you Rita. You brought with you a panache that was infectious. Your laughter, vitality, sense of humour & of course your culinary acumen were legendary. You will be so sadly missed but never forgotten. Rest well Dear Rita!  We wish to thank the staff at Orchard Manor, part of Hawthorn Park for their loving care of Rita. Flowers gratefully declined & donations to your local Cancer or Alzheimer’s societies or charity of choice would be appreciated.
