It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Rhea Debra Krawetz (Hendin) on September 11, 2017 at the age of 59 years.
Rhea was born in Winnipeg, MB January 11, 1958. She lived in Portage La Prairie where she had a distinguished career of 37 years as a social worker advocating on behalf of people with mental disabilities. Her clients were her first priority and she was there for them at all times. Rhea was a true friend and a beautiful human being beyond measure. Her childlike smile and boisterous laugh was enough to lighten anyone’s day. Rhea loved spending time with her beloved grandchildren, family and friends.
Rhea was predeceased by her father David, survived by her mother Bernice, her siblings Shari and Allen, her three children Jason, Tyrone (Caitlin) and Shannon, her grandchildren Haleigh and Karma, and countless friends, aunts, nephews and nieces.
Funeral services were held at the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue Sept. 15th, 2017. Thanks to Rabbi Anibal Mass who officiated the service and pallbearers Marvin Hendin, Tyrone Krawetz, Jason Krawetz, Aaron Krawetz, and Steve Chapman.
Donations bay be made to a charity of one’s choice.
