Rita Therese CARFANTAN


Rita passed away peacefully on January 10, 2016. In 2006, she was predeceased by her husband, Fred (Alfred), and he is no doubt delighted that they are together again.She was loved by six

children: Valerie Mauro, Melanie McLachlan, Yvonne Baillie, Jacqueline Villeneuve, Ray Carfantan, and Collette Carfantan; fourteen grandchildren; and six great grandchildren.Rita and Fred believed in family first, and they derived enormous joy from their grandchildren. Her children draw great comfort in knowing she was well loved, her whole life.Rita was blessed to grow up within a loving family. She was predeceased by her sister Marie and brothers Antoine, Louis, and Joe. She left behind, to meet another day, her dearly beloved siblings: Florence, Albert, Ivone, Aurore, Henriette, Marjorie, and Keith. No one can replace a parent; however for Rita’s children, these remarkable people are a strength and haven.
