December 24, 1922 - November 17, 2015
(McGuire) December 24, 1922-November 17, 2015 Her bags were packed, and she was ready for departure to the “real” other side. However, she did leave us one final gift, allowing each of us to get to the station at our own speed so we could each have a chance to say goodbye. Anxiously awaiting her arrival at Heaven’s gates for this glorious reunion are her husband of 63 years, Orville (2006), her Daddy & Mama, Vesty(1982) & Jane (McCann) McGuire (1930), infant sons Bobby(1945) & Tommy(1954), her sister, brothers and their respective spouses, Mary & Gilly Maitre, Emmett & Rita, Cliff & Helen, June & Marj and Everett McGuire, as well as her mother-in-law Beulah Bellaire/McLoskey, in-laws Muriel & Jack McAuliffe(Kay), Teak & Bob Kettle, Bud & Dolly McLoskey & Tom McLoskey along with a host of Irish cousins & friends who will round out this grand homecoming. It will be a “swell” party. Left here on Earth to celebrate what a special gift we were given (best Mom ever) are her six children and their spouses: Judy & Bob Munro, Barry & Tracy, Bill & Vicki, Catherine & Ernie Nikita, Vic & Kathy, and Mary-Ann & Mark Tracey. Forever holding treasured memories of their inspirational Grandma are Todd(Lisa)Munro & Tara Munro; Mike(Olivia)Bellaire & Bob(Sarah)Bellaire; Phil(Jenn)Bellaire & Shannon Chauvin(Jarrod Dent); Naffele Nikita, Matt(Bree)Nikita & Nadia(Sam)Kovac; Sara Bellaire(Colin Galloway), Amber Bellaire(Daniella Olivito) & Tyler Bellaire; Adam Tracey (Karen LeBlanc), Ashley Tracey (Zachary Tonge)& Jason Tracey. In Grandma’s eyes they were pretty special, near perfect! Rita was a delightful G.G. to Brianna, Rhett, Jagger, Cole, Loralei, Brianne, Tia, Hailee, Owen, Logan, Cody, Gavin, Rocco, Victor, Paislee, Ben, Cullen, Mae, Carly, Aidan, Brayden, Chase and one more on the way. Her remaining siblings and in-laws, Stan & Lou McGuire, Helen Jane & Charlie Trepanier & Madeline McGuire along with numerous nieces & nephews will remember this fun-loving, energetic and positive woman as someone with more strength than her tiny stature would ever suggest. It’s been said that the children’s storybook “The Little Engine That Could” is a story about Mom. Mom possessed very strong faith and belief in God. She would never say a mean word about anyone, and she led by example, a true role model. The truth is, you really do reap what you sow as witnessed by the caring, compassionate individuals involved in Mom’s final journey. Thank you Fr. Dave Boutette, and all staff at Malden Park & Iler Retirement Lodge for helping Mom during some of her most trying times. A brightly burning candle has been extinguished. Visitation Friday, November 20th, 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. at the Kennedy Funeral Home Limited (519-776-7378) 128 Talbot St. N. Essex. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 21st at the Holy Name of Jesus Church (146 Talbot St. S, Essex) at 10:00 a.m. Interment St. Mary’s Cemetery, Maidstone.
