Rita Marie Borle
June 3, 1931 – December 20, 2018
Never To Be Forgotten!
It is with an overwhelmingly profound sense of loss along with an immeasurably heavy heart that we share with you that Rita Marie Borlé, went to rest, quietly and peacefully on December 20th, 2018.
Predeceased by her husband Firmen Joseph Borlé on October 27, 2018. Rita was born June 3, 1931 on a working farm near Morinville, Alberta to John J. and Juliette Bokenfohr. The eldest of four siblings: lrene (d; May 2018), David (d; Nov.2016), Ruth (Sepp (Sherwood Park)), Joyce (d; Aug.2018). Rita married Firmen in 1952 and continued to farm nearby, eventually taking up residence in St. Albert. Rita is survived by her daughters Ruth (Terry) and June (John).
Mom…..you have given us so much.
And in return, asked for so little.
Thank you for always being there for us,
for teaching us, listening to us,
loving us and always, always paving the way for us.
We will have to work so hard to reach the standard you set.
Fare well sweet mom.
You were simply magnificent!
Rita was a disciplined, proud and hard working woman. A woman who was fully committed, regardless
of whatever she was handed in life. She was giving, as well as forgiving. Abundantly selfless with an unconditional love towards family and friends. She was always invoking a lovable tease which was perfectly tailored to her feisty joy of living life to its fullest. Rita proudly exhibited her natural athletic skills in her earlier years when playing softball, as well as horseshoes. Later, focus turned to curling, along with contracting her perennial infectious favourite: hockey fever. Another passion of Rita’s was her love of gardening, often reflected in receiving awards for St. Albert’s « Best Showing Home ». In addition, her self-taught seamstress creations were considered extraordinaire.
Rita’s family wishes to thank Rita’s care teams including Dr. Cathlin Mutch, Dr. Mark Evans as well as the fourth floor staff at the George Boyack Long-term Care Facility, Calgary. We are forever and always grateful!
A candlelight funeral service for Rita will be held at Memories Funeral Home, 13403 St. Albert Trail, Edmonton, AB on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 5:00 pm with specialty dessert and coffee to follow in the reception center. A private family inurnment service on Friday, February 1, 2019 will be held for Firmen and Rita together, at The Holy Cross Mausoleum.
