LEDDY, Rita Theresa
On June 18th Rita passed from this life after a brave and graceful two and a half year struggle with cancer. She died at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, the place where she had trained as a nurse, worked as a nursing supervisor and where she met her husband, Dr. John Edward LEDDY. Soon after their marriage in 1940 Rita and Jack each offered their medical services in the war effort in Europe. Rita worked in England as part of the British Civil Nursing Services. After the war they settled in Saskatoon and raised their three children: Mary Jo, Jennifer and Michael (Eileen). In Saskatoon, Rita became the elegant hostess of many parties and a hard-working member of several civic organizations. She was particularly committed to the Catholic Women's League and the Saint Paul's Hospital Auxiliary. After the death of her husband in 1991, Rita returned to Toronto where she had 'troops of Friends' and continued her many interests while finding new ways of ser ving the community, especially with Meals on Wheels and the Ecumenical Day of Prayer. She was a true renaissance woman and was known as something of an expert on the Bloomsbury Group. She was always open to new adventures. For many, she became a luminous example of how to age gracefully with wit and humour. Rita is survived by her three children and four grandchildren: Shannon, Connor, Brendan and James LEDDY. She will be greatly missed by her cousins Kitty HIGGINS and Mary Agnes McINTYRE as well as by her Friends of all ages and backgrounds. Rita was predeceased by her father Jeremiah WILKINSON, her mother Mary Jane CARR, her step-father François Regis HERVIEUX, her sister and four brothers and her uncle, Rev. Henry CARR, CSB, whom she spoke of with great affection as a 'best friend.' Rita had a great devotion to Blessed John Henry Newman, and the prayer below, composed by him, was one she knew by heart.
May He support us all the day long till the shades lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then, in His mercy, may he give us a safe lodging and a holy rest and peace at the last.
The family is grateful to the doctors and nurses at the Princess Margaret, Saint_Joseph's and Saint Michael's hospitals who accompanied and served her these last 2½ years. Visitation at Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home, 467 Sherbourne St at Wellesley, on Sunday, June 22 between 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. (prayers and memories at 8: 00 p.m.). Her funeral Mass of the Resurrection will take place at St. Basil's Roman Catholic Church (Bay and Saint_Joseph Streets) at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 23. In lieu of flowers, please make receiptable donations to support the refugee work of 'Romero House' (1558 Bloor Street West, Toronto M6P 1A4).
