I had the pleasure of being introduced to Rita by my parents. Rita was a sweet, kind and gentle person. I used to enjoy visiting with her in her cozy apartment in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We were so delighted when she attended our wedding and one of our most fun and memorable Christmas’ was when she joined in our celebrations. I enjoyed staying in touch with her every Christmas. She will be missed. xo

Thank-you Mrs. Norman, I know mom had a special place in her heart for you. You made her feel so special by including her socially whether it was a cup of tea or gathering of friends. Thank-you for caring so much for my mom. God Bless. Maria (Frena) Rosenkranz.

To the Family of Mrs. Frena:
many years ago my mother and I lived on King Street and the Frena Family lived just a bit further down on the other side. My mother and Mrs. Frena became neighbourly friends. When I became widowed and moved to Pleasant Manor I met her again, she remembered me as a bride ! It was nice to have that long ago re -connection. She was always carefully nicely dressed and so friendly to see me. Long ago neighbours are the best. Please accept my sincere sympathy. from Ingrid Regier (Neuhof)
