Obituary

Cumberland, Rita Marie

1953 - 2021

It is with great sadness we announce that our loving wife and mother Rita Marie Cumberland passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on October 19, 2021.

Rita was born on December 4, 1953, in Eckville, Alberta to parents Ralph and Thelma "Chick" Lewis. Rita grew up on the family farm in the Stauffer area where she developed her love of animals. As Rita grew, she inherited her Fathers gift of conversation, and she always had time to chat with anyone. Rita met the love of her life David Cumberland, and they were married on July 27, 1974. Rita and David went on to settle and raise their family in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Rita always enjoyed the outdoors, camping, fishing, and travelling. Later in life Rita volunteered for many years at The Lord's food bank where she enjoyed interacting with the people.

Rita is survived and will be forever missed by her husband of 47 years David, Daughter Cheryl, Son Robert, Grandson Ash, Mother Thelma Lewis, Sister Donna Tomlinson, family friends Greg and Anna, as well as many cousins and friends.

Rita was predeceased by her Father Ralph Lewis in 2008.

A celebration of Rita's life will be announced at a future date.

Memorial donations may be made in Rita's name to The Heart and Stroke foundation, The

Kidney foundation, The Lord's food bank, or any charity of the donor’s choice.

Cremation entrusted to Rocky Funeral home and crematorium.
