Forever Young

If our world had a way to measure the volume, weight, fullness or any other of the many attributes that might be measured, there would have been a sharp dip in the amount of them when Eileen left us in the morning of August 20th at the Cowichan District Hospital. Love, kindness, charity, compassion, joy­fulness, playfulness and steadfast courage in the face of adversity are just some of the many good things that now less in the world.

Eileen was born in Portsmouth, England and lived through the Depression and Second World War there. She came to Manitoba, met Bob, married and became the foundation for a family of six children. Her legacy now includes grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Special thanks from the family to the staff at CDH, especially the teams on the 3rd Floor. Care giving requires special people and we really do have these people at CDH.

Memorial service and reception will be held at First Memorial Funeral Services, 375 Brae Rd., Duncan on September 4, 2015 at 2 p.m.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.
