It is with heavy hearts and sadness that the family announces the passing of Eileen at the Kamloops Hospice surrounded by her loving family on Friday, November 2, 2012. With great strength and optimism, Eileen courageously fought her battle with lung cancer.
Eileen is survived by her husband Pat, her son Nick (Luba) Milligan and her daughter Cindy (Chris) Nelson and her three treasured grandsons Dax, Kane and Baron. She is also survived by her mom Bev Milligan, father Ronald Milligan, brothers Shawn Milligan and Nick (Shelly) Milligan, and sister Lavon (Fred) Brown. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Diane Harris, father-in-law Bill Harris, sisters-in-law Tina Masi and Lynne (Rick) Marshall, brothers-in-law Rod Harris and Gerry Harris, numerous nieces and nephews and her lovely cat M.
Eileen and Pat were married in Kamloops on July 20, 1996. Eileen worked magic on her industrial sewing machine, which was her career. She started her own business in 2002. Eileen loved all the family gatherings, walks, picnics and many others. She loved the earth and nature, enjoying many back road ventures to take photos. Eileen also played in leatherwork and was a collector of vintage and collectable items. She always encouraged others and often put their needs before hers. Eileen was the heart of the family, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and beautiful friend. We will miss her dearly.
The family wishes to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at Hospice for their compassionate care for Eileen during her short stay.
A Celebration of Eileen's life will be held in the Chapel at Schoenings Funeral Home, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, B.C. on Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.
The family wishes donations go to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S., Kamloops, B.C. V2E 2S9 in memory of Eileen.
