Obituary for Rita Ann Cronin

Rita Ann Cronin peacefully passed on May 17th, 2021 at the age of 67 while in hospice at Seasons/Karmonos, Detroit, MI. Her husband Ronald Cronin (of 49 years) was by her side until her final breath.  Rita did not want to give up her life, however, two days prior to her resting day she got to say “Love you” and “Lived a good life” to her wonderful children, son Ryan Cronin and daughter Renee Dudek. From her diagnosis three years ago, she strongly battled with endometrial cancer, although she would say that does not matter. Her strong heart and will to live will remain close in her family and friends. Rita is known her for creativity, caring heart, loving personality and being a social butterfly and self made activity director amongst her family and friends. So many stories shared with her love for camping and being outdoors. From her diagnosis to last finals days she was able to enjoy her grandkids Seiler and Relies Cronin and Ronald Dudek, which brought joy to her heart. Rita grew up in Detroit and raised by her heavenly mother Joan (passed) and father Peter (passed) and her dear siblings sister (Evelyn) and brother Mel (passed). Her beautiful soul will be honored for invited immediate family at her memorial service at Lynch and Sons, Walled Lake, May 26th, 2021. 

Rita's caring soul would rather give gifts than receive. If you wish to send something, please send to the Karmanos foundation as they were a blessing for my mom to receive curtain treatment to extend her life
or please donate blood in her honor as she received multiple blood transfusions that also provided her with more chances at life.
