I was so saddened to hear about Eileen's passing. I was grateful to have gotten to know her briefly. She was a lovely, energetic lady with a kind heart, and a contagious smile. She will be missed. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Eileen was loved by everyone at The Study, staff, students ,parents and Board members. She was a master Physical Education teacher. We all have fond memories of her speaking at assembly , her sense of humour often made us smile. Coaching soccer in the wee hours of the morning , her players never missed a practice. Although I did not see her often , we always shared a good hug when we did. I will miss her dearly. Hugs to William , Sarah and the grand babies .

Dear Sarah and family,
So sorry for your loss. Your mother had such energy and aliveness. It was a pure joy being around her. So lucky to have a mother who loved you so much. May she Rest In Peace, and may her spirit carry through you all.

Having only meeting Eileen a few years ago when I joined her badminton club, I am sad to hear she has left us. I have only good memories of the time I knew her. She was kind, friendly, caring and humorous. She sent me a sweet email when my father died last year, which I will never forget. Her coaching me to help me improve my badminton skills was invaluable. Never criticizing me, always being positive, made her an exceptional person. What a blessing she was. I will not be available to attend the service on Monday, but she will be in my heart forever. Such an angel!
