Riitta was a lover of nature, feeding the birds and chipmunks at her home daily. She did lots of traveling in her life, with her favourite trip being to Australia when she was 21 years old. She always enjoyed spending time at the Hoeg family camp on Nepewassi Lake and has fond childhood memories spent at her parent’s camp on Crooked Lake and Panache Lake. She enjoyed reading, walking her dogs, spending time with family, and watching her favourite TV shows. Riitta had a long career as a retail manager, and eventually moved on to work in the pharmacy at the Shoppers Drug Mart on Long Lake Road, which she very much enjoyed. Riitta was a proud Reiki Master, taught by her teacher and friend Bonnie Mulvihill.
