LAHEY, Rita Catherine (nee McCoy)
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Rita Lahey on Thursday, February 16, 2012 in Ottawa at the age of 84. She was the proud and loving mother of Don (Yvonne Makosz), Sandy (Fred Armstrong) and the late Tony Lahey (Donelda Lahey nee Taylor), the beloved grandmother of Dana Lahey, Catherine, Jessica and Toby Armstrong, and Riannon and Gillian Lahey, and second mom to Grace Martin. She was pre-deceased by her parents James and Agnes McCoy, her brother Jim (Kay McCoy) and her former husband, Don Lahey.
In an era when most women worked at home, Rita was proud to work as a research technician at the National Research Council in Ottawa. An unassuming pioneer, she loved the challenge and variety of her work that included the NRC’s early computers and structural testing on everything from aircraft wing fatigue to jet engines during bird strike impacts, and from car crash passenger safety to the Snowbird and the first Canadarm, Canada’s aerospace jewel. Although she would scoff at the thought of being a role model, she nonetheless was. Always encouraging her children to do what they love, she often cautioned that one of the greatest burdens was to feel that what you did was “just a job”.
To all who knew her, however, Rita was known for her gentleness, her generosity and her love of a celebration. Even when life was difficult, she always thought of herself as fortunate and expressed great pleasure in her gardening, travels and her pets. Her family was her heart and she lived to enjoy, encourage and celebrate the milestones and successes of her children and grandchildren. She was the grandmother who taught Santa about generosity. She will be deeply missed and remembered with love by us all. We raise a glass to her.
Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, on Tuesday, February 21, from 12:30 until Service time in the Chapel at 2:30 pm.
