Eileen Freda Richardson was born on May 30th, 1950 in Kamloops, B.C. and passed away peacefully on June 10th, 2009 in Vernon, B.C. with her family by her side. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband; Ken, to whom she was married for 34 years, her daughter; Rebecca, her son, Mackenzie and her brother Vic (Maureen Primrose) Rantio. Eileen was preceded in death by her mother; Kay.
Eileen was always a selfless lady who put everyone’s needs above her own. One of her greatest joys was surrounding herself with amazing friends, be it on the golf course, at her book club, playing bridge and donating time for charitable events. As a mother, wife, friend and teacher she gave unconditional love, support and guidance. Eileen taught and helped shape and develop the young lives of elementary school children in Revelstoke, Vernon (Harwood), Whitevale and Lavington. She accepted everyone, opening her arms and house to those who needed a little extra help in life. She was the most beautiful woman, inside and out.
We love you so much;
you will always be in our hearts, forever and beyond.
