Predeceased by her parents Emathé and Julien Loranger and many family members. Rita will also be sadly missed by many sisters, sisters-in-law, brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours.
She welcomed everyone in her home with open arms and home cooked meals. After marrying Jean-Noël, they were dairy farmers for many years in Hudson twp. Her main focus has always been to care for her family and organize the busy farming life. She also had many talents such as baking pies and making homemade donuts, knitting and being a seamstress. She was happiest surrounded by family members and loved ones. She was also part of the Filles d’Isabelle club for many years. Upon retirement from farming, she also discovered the joy of travelling the world with family.
Many thanks to the North Bay Hospital and Temiskaming Hospital.
Rita's family will receive friends at the Perrin Funeral Chapel on Sunday from 2 until 4 pm and from 7 until 9pm. Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, August 6, 2018 at 11 am from the Sacred Heart Church. Fr. Georges Hakiza officiating.
