Rita J. Richard 87 of Champlain passed away after a lengthy illness on April 22, 2022.
She was born in Plattsburgh, NY, the daughter of Irving and Edith Dominy. In 1952 Rita married the love of her life Norman. When Norman was out and about Rita was sure to follow. Rita and Norman operated a trucking business in Champlain for many years. Rita worked side by side with her husband. She was a mother, a homemaker and a truck driver, which was very rare that many years ago. Every one of her seven children on many occasions rode shotgun with Rita and Norman.
Rita decided to leave this world and join Norman on his birthday.
Rita was predeceased by her husband Norman and son David; her parents Irving and Edith Dominy; and her two brothers, Irving Jr. and Donald Dominy.
Left to cherish her memory are daughters, Linda (Robert) Pelkey, Norma (Herman) LeClair, Carol (Richard) Garceau, Theresa (Jerry) Davison; her sons, Michael (Chantal) Richard, Kevin (Sarah) Richard; 13 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.
Her family would like to thank their sister, Norma and her husband Herman who were Rita’s primary caregivers through two plus years of Covid. They were on call 24/7 and never failed to answer the many calls day and night.
Visiting hours will be held May 14, 2022 from 10:00-11:45 a.m. at the Ross funeral Home in Mooers. A funeral service will follow at 12:00 noon at the Ross Funeral Home.
