It is our utmost sadness that on November 11, 2021, we said “Good-bye” to our Mom and sister, Rita Ann Petrollini; at the age of 57.

Rita was a friendly and down-to-earth person. She loved her family, her dogs and was an outstanding artist with pastels on canvas. Her favorite pastimes were gardening and baking. Rita will always hold a place in our hearts as a loving mom, daughter, big sister, a caring grandma, auntie, niece, and friend.

She leaves behind her son Matthew Petrollini and his children, Cole, Adrianna and Mateo; Thomas and family. Rita was predeceased by her daughter, Valerie Louise Kermath in 1985.

The inurnment will be held outside on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, 5420 106 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T6H 2S9 (close to Southgate Mall). Father Jim Corrigan, state Chaplain presiding. A Celebration of Life will be held in early spring 2022.

I can”t believe your gone Rita. I will surly miss our time together, our talks and your advice on plants. Will see you again on the other side.


I will never forget my friend Rita. The laughs. Super sleuthing and coffee and baileys. Road tripping and talks. You always put me back on track. Rest well my friend .


We only met a handful of times, despite being part of a family. But, I felt like I’d known you forever! You were so easy to like! So down to earth ! Grateful for the times I saw you! So very sad and so sorry that we didn’t have more time together! Be at peace and we’ll hook up down the road!! Love you!
