It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Rita Markiwsky (Kabatoff), at home surrounded by love June 10, 2022 at the age of 63. Rita is lovingly remembered by her husband of 43 years, Ken Markiwsky, children, Melanie Markiwsky, Vanessa McEleney (Dan), and Keith Markiwsky. Her grandchildren, Siersha, Darian, Declan, and Ethan adored her and will greatly miss her in their lives. Rita will be cherished by many, including her mother, Irene Kostyk, 3 sisters, in-laws, nieces and nephews, and many friends that were as special as family.
At Rita’s request, a cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of life later in the summer, date to be determined.
As a family we wish to express sincere gratitude for the kindness and support shown to Rita and our family during her illness and we are forever thankful that she showed us such strength, grace, and courage to allow us to make lasting memories with her. She will be forever missed, and we take comfort in knowing she left this world knowing how loved she was.
