Rita Olivier (formerly Robinson), aged 90, passed away on July 28, 2023, at the John Noble Home in Brantford, ON. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Harold Olivier, in 2018. Rita is survived by her two sons, Dr. David Olivier (wife Elizabeth) of Brantford and Robert (wife Rasa) of Toronto. She was the daughter of the late Charles and Louise Ann Robinson and loving sister of Isabel Gobbo (David) of Garson. Rita was also a cherished sister-in-law to Cecile Robinson and Jack MacDougall. She was preceded in death by her brothers Delphis and Albert, as well as sisters Cecile Spencer, Mary Jane MacDougall, and Yvonne Fielding. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly.
Throughout her life, Rita found joy in her family’s accomplishments and activities. She shared countless happy moments with her “soul mate” in their winter home in Florida. Rita had a passion for golf and was thrilled when she achieved a hole-in-one in 2000. She also enjoyed curling in earlier years. Rita dedicated many years to working in the accounting field. As a devout Roman Catholic, she found solace in prayer and maintained her 60-year membership in the CWL.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the compassionate caregivers on Brant Terrace at the John Noble Home who provided unwavering care to Rita. As per her request, there will be no public visitation, and cremation has already taken place. A memorial Mass will be held at St. John the Evangelist Church in Garson on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, at 10 am. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, or offerings for Mass would be greatly appreciated.
