PHARAND-WANAMAKER, Rita   -  July 7, 1948 - January 19, 2023


It is with great sadness that the family of Rita Pharand-Wanamaker announce her passing on January 19, 2023, in Ottawa at Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital, at the age of 74.  

She is predeceased by her husband Willim (Bill) Wanamaker, parents Elie and Suzanna Pharand, and brothers Gerry and Jack.  Survived by her siblings Tina (Serge), Louise (Bob), Sue (Peter), Michel (Sylvie), Bob, Ron, and John (Jill).  Fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews, and many friends.


Rita will be remembered for her love of family, friends and neighbours, and her sense of humour. Rita loved a good party and was an avid gardener. She was also a devoted lover of all her dogs and cats. Her awesome sense of humour and laughter will truly be missed.


Arrangements with Low & Low Funeral Chapel, Port Perry.
