Rita Marriott AuCoin

Rita Marriott AuCoin

We sadly regret to announce the passing of our dear Mother, Rita Marriott AuCoin (Née Arsenault) formerly of Margaree, at the age of 90 on December 18, 2023. She was the daughter of the late Peter Edward Ned and the late Angelique Julique Arsenault, Arsenault Hill.

Rita (also called the Queen) was passionate about working in her garden. She enjoyed seeing her flowers grow and watching the birds. She was an avid knitter. She loved fishing, dancing and playing cards, especially a good game of crib or 63. She had a huge interest in genealogy and was continuously researching and gathering information on our family tree which she enjoyed sharing with all her family.

She is predeceased by her husbands, Clarence Joseph Marriott and George G. AuCoin; sisters, Catherine (Joe Patrick) LeBlanc, Jane (Paddy à Mose) LeBlanc, Mary (Patrick) Poirier, Josephine (Johnnie) Muise; and brothers, Simon (Zabine Doucet), and Peter (Margaret à Leo LeBlanc).

Rita is survived by her four children, Daniel Marriott (Conchita), Debbie Ouellette (Richard), Donna Marriott, and Diana Hawley (Jerry). Rita loved her 8 great-grandchildren and 13 great great-grand children. She is also survived by her two sisters, Theresa Leblanc and Sophie Gracie. Mom will be sadly missed by her children and her grandchildren, her many nieces and nephews from near and far but also the many friends she met throughout her life.

The family would like to thank the nursing staff and her doctors at the Inverary Manor Nursing Home in Inverness who cared for our wonderful Mother for the last several years. We would also like to thank Dr. Ritter and his assistants for caring for her this past year.

Cremation has taken place. A Funeral mass with an hour visitation will be held at a later date in St. Michael’s Church, East Margaree followed by burial in the parish cemetery. Family flowers only. Donations in memory of Rita can be made to the Inverary Manor, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I remember your Mom well in the years she lived in Halifax. Our families spent a lot of time together. You were very lucky to have her for so many wonderful years. She was always laughing and enjoyed life so much. The energy she had! We are sure you have lots of memories to fall back on. We so enjoyed her and Debbie’s visit to Halifax many years ago. We got to take them out on a cruise and had a lovely chat about past memories. Take care of yourselves ❣️Love Heather and Barry
