Belfast — Rita D. Flint, 92, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving daughters Jan. 10, 2020. Rita was born in Island Falls to Dennis and Lucy Michaud, the eighth of nine children.

Rita graduated from Island Falls High School and moved to Belfast, where she met her future husband, Oscar Flint. They enjoyed 51 years of marriage.

Rita worked at Belfast Area High School for many years making homemade food and yeast rolls in the kitchen. She was an excellent seamstress, making all the clothes for the family — even Oscar's suits. She was an excellent pie baker and enjoyed bowling, skiing and shopping with her sisters.

In addition to her parents, Rita was predeceased by her grandson Nicholas Wheaton.

Rita is survived by her daughters, Deborah Wheaton of Naples and Carol Gay of Newcastle; grandchildren Emily Wheaton and her husband, Alex Doucette, of Naples, Daniel Gay of Monmouth, Peter Gay and his wife, Megan, of Rumford. She also is survived by great-grandchildren Tyson Wheaton and Diamond Doucette of Naples.

A memorial Mass will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20, at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 81 Court St., Belfast. Burial will be at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Augusta at a later date.

Arrangements are with Riposta Funeral Home, Belfast. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family online at ripostafh.com.
