RICKETTS, Carrie - May 27, 1920 - March 21, 2014 It is with tremendous sadness and heavy hearts that we must say goodbye to our dear, most remarkable and inspirational mom - our matriarch in the true sense of the word, a woman ahead of her time in so many ways. She passed away in her 94th year with her family at her side. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Daniel, her dear sons, Loyola and Robert and her siblings, Jack, Jim and Angela. She will be lovingly remembered for her practical wisdom, great faith and strong independence by her children, Rose, Gerard (Marnee), Winnie (Terry), Art (Agnes), Jerome (Jennifer) and Angela (Jacques); her grandchildren, Kelly (Zeb), Selene, Jackie (Wade), Donald, Chris (Stephanie), Michael, Meghan (Tyler), Adrian (Juliah), Lesley (Joe), Adam (Tina), Andrew, Judy (Alex) and Stephan; her great- grandchildren, Calleigh, Chelsey, Jeremy, Miriam, Tessa, Fiona, Jordan, Jacey and Liam and her many nieces, nephews and friends. Our family will receive friends on Monday, March 24th, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Newediuk Funeral Home, Kipling Chapel, 2058 Kipling Ave., Toronto. Her Funeral Mass will be held at St. Andrew's Catholic Church, 2547 Kipling Ave., Toronto, on Tuesday, March 25th, at 10:30 a.m. Prayers will be held in the funeral home on Monday at 7:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please remember Mom in your prayers and, if you wish, make a donation to your favourite charity in Mom's memory.
