We mourn the passing of Winona Voss Rice (nee Pridham), 94, of Moncton, NB, wife of the late Dr. R.N. Dean Rice (1921-1977), of Petitcodiac. It occurred on January 12, 2020 at McNair Manor, Riverview, after a long period of declining health. Born on July 11, 1925, she was daughter of the late LeBert Pridham and Vida (Reid) Pridham, who lived in Sunny Brae, Moncton. She was an avid skater and member of the Moncton Skating Club. Winona served as a volunteer at the Moncton Hospital and was a longtime resident of Petitcodiac. She loved the great outdoors and liked nothing better than a long walk through the crackling autumn leaves.
Winona is survived by her sons Richard (Debra Dunville) of Ottawa, Ontario and Patrick (Patricia), of Didsbury, Alberta, grandchildren Caitlin and Aidan and sister Adrienne Mellon, of Kingston, Ontario. As well as her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her sister Elaine (1926-1992) and brother Brud (1927-2005).
Special thanks go to the management and staff of McNair Manor and Residence Aventure, for all their compassion, care and attention given to Winona.
Graveside gathering will take place in the spring, in Maplewood Cemetery, Petitcodiac, NB.
