In Memoriam:

Rita Suni Munroe

For the test of the heart is trouble and it always comes with years.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through the tears.

It is with great sadness that I inform you that our beloved Rita Munroe passed away on July 22, 2009.
Rita and Bud Munroe were the founders of the Clan Munro Association of Canada in 1975 and were the backbone of our organization for many years.
Bud and Rita were good friends with our past Chief, Captain Patrick Munro of Foulis and his wife Timmy.
As a former pilot, I loved the fact that Bud and Rita met when they were both student pilots.
Bud passed on in 2002 and now Rita will be joyfully reunited with her life-long companion.
We will remember them with great fondness.

God rest her soul,
