Rheta Joy Stansbury (nee Rattle) September 17, 1928 - April 18, 2020
After a period of declining health, passed away peacefully at the Brant Centre Long Term Care on April
18, 2020, at the age of 91. Predeceased by her husband Jack (2008). Rheta will be deeply missed by
her children Brian (Rita) of BC, Susan (Graeme) of Burlington, grandson Andrew (Lindsay) also of
Burlington, step-grandsons Rod (Melissa) of BC and Jeremy (Shelley) of Alberta, brother Donald of
Markham, and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Rheta was also predeceased by her parents James
and Jessie (nee Milroy), and sisters Dorothy, Marion and Jean. We are very thankful to the staff and
volunteers at Brant Centre for their care and compassion over this past year, especially during these
difficult times.
Rheta was born and raised in Milliken. She was a devoted wife, mother, and special Nana. She
cherished her family and held life long friendships. Rheta loved entertaining friends and family, and was
an avid gardener, golfer and 5-pin bowler. She will be terribly missed by all who knew her.
Cremation has taken place and due to the current pandemic, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later
date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Rheta may be made to a charity of your choice.

My deepest condolences to the family. I'll always remember our times with the ladies golfing at Lockwood Golf Club in Zephyr, our lunches out and our evening buffets at local community centres. It was always a good time in the company of Rheta.

Hazel MacEachern,
Barriie, Ontario.
