Saint John, NB; University of Santo Tomas (Philippines), 1955; family medicine. Died May 10, 2021, aged 89. Survived by 5 children and 8 grandchildren. “After medical school, Rosalita went to the United States in 1956 to pursue her specialty in obstetrics and gynecology. She found her way to Saint John, where she met and married Dr. David Rideout (deceased). Together they raised 5 children and moved from Sussex, NB, to Toronto, before finally settling in Saint John. Rosalita took time out from her medical career to focus her full attention on raising her children, followed by an admirable and successful return to medical practice as a locum family physician. Rosalita was deeply appreciated by her patients and coworkers as an incredibly knowledgeable, dedicated and caring person.”
