Obituary of Rita Josephine (Cayley) Logan

In loving memory of a beautiful lady

Rita (Ruby) Josephine (Cayley) Logan

Born: October 23, 1924 in St. Marys, Ontario

Died:  May 26, 2024 in Thorndale, Ontario


It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of a wonderful Mother, NaNa, G.G., aunt, and dear friend to many.  Rita passed away at home in her 100th year, with family by her side.  She is predeceased by her mother Cecilia Cayley, Father Peter Cayley, her husband Cecil H. Logan (1995) and her son-in-law Patrick Egan (2002). Rita is the last of her siblings; Marie, Alice, Leona, Cecilia, Bill, Roy and baby Herbie.  Rita is survived by her daughter Louise, two grandchildren Rob (Christine) and April (Jason) and also five great-grandchildren Kendall (Grayden), Danica, Bryce (Abby), Paige, and Madison.  The sunshine of her life, not to be forgotten is her sidekick and furry friend Precious.

Despite the heartbreaking losses of so many family and friends in her life, Rita’s ability to pick herself up and embrace her life was inspiring.  Her family and friends were her greatest joy. Time spent with them represented the highest value to her in this world.

Rita enjoyed the simple things in life like a good hot cup of tea, a great conversation on the phone, her daily games of solitaire, and her old soap opera Days of Our Lives, and Saturdays and Sundays watching wrestling.  She never refused a good game of 31.

Rita had the wisdom of anyone and the memory of an elephant. She moved to the farm in 1946 where she lived until 2022.  At this time she moved into her daughter’s home.

I would like to thanks all the great girls who helped mom stay at home over the last few years; she enjoyed each and every one of you.  A great big thank you to all her dear friends who gave her a smile in the last days here on earth.

“Never to be forgotten”

As per Rita’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  There will be a private family service at a later date with interment in St. Marys Cemetery.
