Rita Wilma Desjarlais

1950 – 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rita on October 31, 2014 in Vernon, BC, born May 12, 1950 in Esterhazy, SK.

Rita met the love of her life Lloyd in Saskatoon. They were married soon and started a family of 4 children: John, Cheryl, James, and Trevor. The family grew up in Malakwa. They enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping in the many beautiful places in the area.

Rita and Lloyd divorced and Rita moved away. Recently she moved back to BC; first to Kamloops and then to Enderby. She enjoyed jam sessions, meat draws, and karaoke at the Enderby Legion.

She will be sadly missed by her children: John (Anita) Anders, Cheryl (Gord) Heltman, James (Pat) Anders, Trevor (Falon) Anders and their families; all of her friends at the Enderby Legion; the neighbors at Enderby Memorial Terrace; and all the bikers she had met since moving to Enderby.
