We are sad to announce the passing of Eileen Robertson (nee Christie) on August 4, 2009 at the age of 98 years and 9 months.
Eileen was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Clarence James Robertson, in August of 2004. She is survived by her son Bob (Donna) and her grandchildren Jamie (Melissa) and Jeni and her great grandson Silas.
Born in Winnipeg Manitoba as the youngest of 6 children, she spent most of her adult life in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario with the final 30 years in British Columbia (Victoria and Vernon). She loved the outdoors and was always wanting to go for a walk or get outside for some fresh air and exercise. On days when she could not get out, she would walk up and down 6 flights of stairs just to stay fit.
The family greatly appreciates the care and kindness given by the staff at Hospice. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Eileen’s name can be made to North Okanagan Hospice Society. A private family service will be held at a later date.
