Rita (Maroesja) Brouwer-Krischko


In loving memory of Rita (Maroesja) Brouwer-Krischko who passed away February 5th 2022 surrounded by love and with the daughter she protected so fiercely in life by her side.

A devoted mother to Elly (Dave) and Theo (Maya), Rita was strong, determined and eternally kind, never allowing the immense hardships she endured as a child in war torn Europe dampen her loving spirit. Whether it was a stray cat, wild bird or pet dog she was there to offer comfort and nourishment, always embodying her maxim of it being better to give than to take.

Born in Seredyne, Ukraine, Rita married her love and protector Jan in 1945 (1924-1994), living together in Alkmaar, Netherlands then later Bergen, Netherlands until emigrating with the family to Oliver, BC in 1991 and finally moving to Salt Spring in 2003.

Her sense of humour remained strong throughout the years and her love of flowers and nature provided her endless enjoyment.

A caring and compassionate spirit, she will be dearly missed.
