Obituary for Rita Eleanor Wiener (Matthes)

With great sadness, the family of Rita Wiener announces that Rita passed away peacefully at the North Shore Hospice on April 18, 2023 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She will be remembered and cherished by all who loved her kindness, humour, tenacity, caring, personal strength and engaging story telling. A special thanks to the numerous health-care providers who caringly assisted her on this journey. She was that “little engine that could”!

A private gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Chemotherapy Unit at Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, 231 East 15 Street, North Vancouver BC V7L 2L7.
