It is with great sadness that the family of Rhea Francis Coderre announces her passing into the Kingdom of God on July 26, 2020 in Rocky Mountain House after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
Rhea was born on February 28, 1943 in Ponteix, Saskatchewan to Therese (nee Goddu) and Reo Fleury. She grew up in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan with four siblings. As a young girl, Rhea met the man who would eventually become her husband, and she married Edgar on July 18, 1964. Shortly there after they moved to Estevan, Saskatchewan where she gave birth to Michelle. Four years later they welcomed their second daughter, Beverley, in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. In 1970, Edgar and Rhea moved to Rocky Mountain House where they raised their daughters and welcomed their granddaughters. Rhea was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was the heart of our family and will be deeply missed.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 56 years, Edgar, her two daughters: Michelle Wutzke (Alex) and Beverley Orcutt (James), and her two beautiful granddaughters: Christina Wutzke (Travis) and Sarah Wutzke, as well as her sister Beatrice Gramlich and several nieces and nephews.
Rhea was predeceased by her parents, Therese and Reo Fleury, her brothers: Bob Fleury and Cleo Fleury and her younger sister Carole Fleury.
A Funeral Service will be held for Rhea at St. Matthew Catholic Church on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 11:00 AM with Father Leon Kler officiating. An inurnment will be conducted at a later date.
In honor of the memory of Rhea, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
