Rita Dupas

February 5, 1921 - February 8, 2013


Rita Dupas passed away on February 8th, 2013 at the age of 92. She is survived by her children – Marc, Monique (Macaskill), Pauline, Pierrette (Stubbings), Lise (Beaton), Denis, Suzanne (Deluca), Jacques, Michele , 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Rita was born in St. Agathe, Manitoba on February 5th, 1921 to Ephrem and Antoinette Toupin. Rita grew up in St. Boniface, Manitoba, the 5th in a family of 11 children.

She married the love of her life, Aime Dupas in 1944 and they spent 62 joyful years together.

When Aime was transferred to Vancouver, they moved the family to B.C. Rita was an outstanding homemaker through her baking (especially her butter tarts), cooking, and sewing; she selflessly dedicated herself to her family. Rita was very committed to the Catholic Church and volunteered at many organizations where her sewing skills were appreciated. 

For sixteen years, Rita enjoyed spending her weekends at their cabin at Pitt Lake in B.C. where her laughter could be heard during a good crib game. The family is comforted by the thought that Aime and Rita are finally reunited. We will miss her dearly.

The family wishes to thank the compassionate and caring staff at Jubilee Manor and Dr. Janz for their outstanding care.
