We Remember

LOGAN, Rita Melanie

September 2, 1950 — June 1, 2014

It is with broken hearts that we announce Rita Melanie Logan passed away at home, surrounded by loved ones, Sunday, June 1, 2014. Left to cherish her memory are her soul mate Ted Rombough; loving sons: Edward Grayston of Merritt and Daniel Grayston of Singapore and step daughter Kerri Rombough of Alberta; grandchildren: Taylor, Lance, Bryce and Triston along with her step grandchildren: Colton, Joel and Emma; sisters Lorraine Miller (Dave) of Summerland, Coleen Logan (Mendell Beaver – deceased) of Vernon, Wendy Lawrence (Les) of Vernon and brother Dwaine Logan of Vernon; mother-in-law Gladys Taillon of Gananoque, Ontario. Also left behind are her canine companions Timmy and Jerry and devoted family and friends. Pre-deceased was her mother Helen Logan of Fort St. John, father Roy Logan of Sundre, Alberta and sister Becky Rigsby of Calgary, Alberta. Rita came from humble beginnings and was determined to educate herself and create a better life for her boys. While working a full time job and raising two young boys, she added CGA to her list of accomplishments. She lived a life full of laughter, love, music and hard work. Friends and family were drawn to her vivacious personality, witty sense of humour, unprecedented decorating advice and zest for life. She golfed, curled, played cards and mah jong. She like traveling, camping, boating and gardening. She would pick up a guitar and “get a party started.” A service in celebration of her life will be held at Ellison Community Hall, Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 12:00 noon, 4411 Old Vernon Road, Kelowna, BC. All welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the BC SPCA, www.spca.bc.ca.

    To Rita’s family – I’m so sorry for your loss. I am so shocked and saddened by this news. She was an amazing and beautiful soul and a very lovely and fun colleague. I’m so glad that I got to know her while she lived here and worked for a few years in Vancouver. She always talked about her family and pups very lovingly, and she was so full of life and always very fun to be with – very passionate, and yes, she did have style and she also gave me good advice on decorating and how to dress too!

  • Val Sampson says:

    The burden of sorrow that is felt for you cannot be expressed in words. Nor can the grief you are experiencing be taken away. But may the many expressions of sympathy touch your grieving hearts and lighten your sorrow.

    To Ted… may you find comfort in the special memories of all that you shared with Rita and may those memories fill your heart and bring you peace.

    To Eddy and Danny… your mother had the greatest love for you both. May you find comfort in every time you think of her, for she will be right there with you in your heart.

    The friendship Rita and I shared, I will cherish forever. Grant her eternal rest, O’Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon her. — Val Sampson

    Ted, Eddie and Dan,

    My deepest condolences on your loss. I was very sorry to hear about Rita’s passing. It meant a lot to me and I was very glad to have been able to catch up with her again at the golf tournament a couple years ago.

    To Rita’s family. It is with such shock and dismay that we hear of Rita’s passing. We were colleagues at work and knew her only through her representation of us as union rep and senior auditor. She was a formidable woman who was full of life and her resolve to represent her co workers went beyond the call of duty. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time and know in yr hearts she will always be with u! – Rosann Nanci-Carl
