Condolence from Don RAY on December 29th, 2020 11:06 am

I have great memories of Eileen while stationed in Baddeck, NS. Barry Lidstone and I lived in the barracks. We were quite young at the time and Eileen became our replacement mom. She often fed us and gave us guidance, and the occasional reprimand. Loved watching the girls, Kelly, Karen and Kim, growing up. My most enjoyable Sunday duty was to drive Eileen in the police car to Nyanza to attend mass at the reservation. I was in uniform and Eileen and I and the priest were the only non locals. The sermons were quite different. I know Eileen will be terribly missed by her family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you all.
