Rhea Stephens (Slaght) (nee Boismier)

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Mother on November 1, 2020 at 93 years of age. Predeceased by husband Clayton Stephens (1994). Dear mother of Marianne Prattes (Will), Les Slaght (Mary) and the late David Slaght (1968). Cherished grandma of Kimberly Prattes (Jamie), Heather Adragna (Renato), Stacey Wiebe (Peter), Michael Slaght (Stephanie) and 11 great grandchildren. Loving sister of the late Norma Rainone, Jake Boismier (the late Lila), Judy Hannan, the late Russel Boismier (the late Betty), Jim Boismier (Julie), Jac Boismier and Cecelia Tourangeau (the late Dick). She will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews.

Rhea was a lifetime member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary as a Sergeant of Arms at branches 12, 578 and 143. She had a zest for life and loved her euchre, darts and her many days out dancing with her friends. A special thank you to Katherine Sulja for your care and compassion. Also thank you to all the first responders who were so attentive.

November 1st was a day of sorrow when two sisters, Rhea and Norma, passed away on the same day.

She was always Aunt Rhea to me even though we were cousins. It was a respect that my parents taught me. The last time I saw her she had come across a picture of my Dad and myself at my grade 8 graduation and she gave it to me. That meant a lot as both of my parents are deceased and I lost my memories in a fire. Sorry to hear of your loss. I loved her very much. I am Geraye Smith (Lajoie)
