FYFE, Margaret Fyfe  -  January 1938 - October 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret (Rita) Fyfe, in her 85th year on October 7, 2022 at Lakeridge Health in Ajax.  

Rita was born in Aberdeen, Scotland where she met her husband Jim and then they emigrated to Toronto in 1956. Rita worked at Shell Canada until she retired.

Rita loved to spend time with her grand children, including giving lessons on how to bake the perfect shortbread or build Christmas Gingerbread houses.

She loved the outdoors and travelling. Rita liked to read and spent many hours doing her favourite crossword puzzles.

Rita leaves behind her loving husband Jim of 66 years and children Rita (Brian) and James (Maria). 

She was a much loved and adored Grandma to Marissa, Laura, Andrew, David (Sandra), and Daniel. 

She was a new Great Grandma to Hailey.  Thank you to all care and first-line workers at Lakeridge Gardens and Lakeridge Health for taking great care to support Rita and the family.                                     

Funeral arrangements with Accettone Funeral Home in Ajax.
