Rita Armstrong was a talented artist, drawing and painting throughout her life. During WWII she and her sister Gerry moved to Thunder Bay to work in an aircraft manufacturing factory. Later Rita trained as a hairdresser and owned three successful shops in Calgary, Cloverdale and Eckville. While she was in Cloverdale, she met and married Merv Taylor but was widowed soon after. In 1970, she met and married Lloyd Armstrong and retired from hairdressing. They made their home in Calgary and she remained here, near her sisters, after she was widowed again. Rita is fondly remembered as a devoted sister and a wonderful Aunt who will be missed.
