Of Fergus, Ontario. March 6 1938- August 21 2020. It is with sad hearts that we had to say good bye to our mother. Survived by Monique (Glen), Rene(Cathy), Michele. Grandmother to Maxwell, Annabelle, Sarah, Kirstin, & Gunner. Ria has been our pillar of strength and knowledge for all of our lives. She was the coolest mom during our Vacation Farm years. Ria was a foster parent for more than 350 children & youth in her 24 years of service. During her retirement, Ria operated a beautiful B&B out on the farm in Belwood. In between all her vocations, Ria provided book keeping services for several travel agencies and for the Hotel La Placia. Ria loved flowers and the beauty of nature. Predeceased by her parents Arnold Francisco’s Poot, Born December 16, 1889 and Rose (Rosalinda) Poot-Dreessen, Born December 5, 1896.
