Peacefully at Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton Ontario, on Sunday June 6th, in her 97th year.
Much loved wife of 63 years, to the late Orv Reynolds (2013). Predeceased by their infant daughter Rebecca Jane in 1958. Loving mother to Nancy (Mike) Brown of Simcoe and Paul (Julie) Reynolds of St. Catharines and their children Kyle and Christopher.
After retiring from a 30+ year teaching career in Dundas, Eileen attended McMaster University in Hamilton where she earned her Honors Degree in Art History. Over the years Eileen and Orv’s love of travel took them to over 15 countries, meeting many life long friends along the way. Eileen volunteered as a Docent at The Art Gallery in Hamilton and thru their travels saw many of the paintings she had studied at McMaster.
The family would like to express their thanks to Eileen’s amazing home caregivers, PSW’s Barbara, Lynsey and Sherry along with her evening caregivers Virginia and Kim. We are also thankful to the team of nurses that cared for Eileen at Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice (Evelyn, Joanne, Sharon and Whitney)
Due to COVID restrictions, a private family funeral will take place at Grove Cemetery in Dundas. In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates donations in Eileen’s name to the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton.
