Eileen Elizabeth Kent passed away at the age of 90 and is on her journey to eternity.
She leaves with many memories: her sister Jean in Coombs, BC, and Jean’s daughters Jo Ann and family in Coombs; and Sharon and family in London, England. To that family she was Auntie Till. She also leaves her brother Wray, sister-in-law Bernice and their children Barbara-Jo in Edmonton, David and Dana and family in Edson, Alberta, and Dickson and Ada and family in Victoria, BC. To all of us she was our Auntie EE. Also, in Nakusp, BC, Eileen leaves two nieces, Betty Mckay and Lynn Lythgoe and families. To all of them she was Auntie Eileen.
Eileen was born in Lacombe, Alberta and grew up in Arrow Park, BC. She was predeceased by her parents Lavina and Dickson Kent, her brother Arthur Kent and her niece Eileen Alstead.
Eileen spent her life as a Registered Nurse in many areas of BC and for a time in Alberta. Eileen enjoyed her retirement in Vernon, until ill-health she moved to Edmonton in 2010 to be near family. It was Eileen’s wish to be with her parents in Salmon Arm, BC and a private family gathering will take place there at a future date.
We, her family, extend our heartfelt thanks to Rev. Colleen Sanderson (Saint Michaels and All Angels Parish), Ruby Reedman in Spiritual Care and the staff on Unit 3B at Dickensfield Extended Care.
Rest in Peace Auntie EE, we will miss you.
