Eileen Harvey passed peacefully on November 27, 3:30 am, 2018 at the Campbell River Hospital.
Eileen was born in Beverley, Yorkshire, England on July 23, 1922. Eileen resided at Ironwood Place and loved her little apartment for eleven years prior to being hospitalized for the past ten months.
Mom had a wonderful sense of humour and enjoyed a great laugh. As well she was courageous and a “tough cookie” who was fiercely independent. She always enjoyed and appreciated her visits from family, especially her granddaughter Susan who attended to all her emergencies with T.L.C. and consistently ensured that mom’s treats were always there.
Mom is survived by her loving daughter Pat, son in law Richard, and son Adrian. Grandson Richard and Allysia, Granddaughter Susan and her husband Don, and her great grandchildren Deanna, Hailee and Carina, Daniel and Sophie. Mom will be dearly missed by her friends Kristen and Eileen both of whom made an incredible difference in mom’s life.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Steven Lebeuf for always going above and beyond to care for mom and the family. His loving care was greatly appreciated. We would also like to thank the staff, care aides and residents of Ironwood Place for their care and friendship. In addition, we would like to thank the nursing staff of 3B for the exceptionally compassionate and loving care.
A memorial service will take place December 15, 2018, at 2:00 pm at Sutton’s Funeral Home at 502 South Dogwood Street, Campbell River, B.C.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation and to the Parkinson’s Society of B.C.
