Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
My husband Tom & his parents were fortunate to be neighbours on Harvard Ave with Bernie, Eileen & family & Eileen's parents. They were the friendliest, helpful family that were a great pleasure to know, as they treated us as their own. In the 60’s It was my fortune to work with Eileen at the Bay Credit Office Tom & I loved each other’s company at 10 pin bowling for many years, we visited back & forth for lots of Fun times, mainly eating homemade cinnamon buns & coffee. I will dearly miss our conversations on the phone, and I will miss you dear friend. RIP Eileen. You are in God’s Care, with your beloved Bernie Sincere Sympathy, Myrtle ♥️🌹🌹🌹 - Posted by: Myrtle Karlicki (Friend ) on: Oct 24, 2021
I will fondly remember Eileen as a warm, vital, fun-loving lady who lived next to my grandparents on Harvard Ave. Bernie and Eileen and my parents enjoyed a longstanding friendship. My sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: Fern Karlicki (friend of family) on: Oct 23, 2021
We remember Eileen from St. Marks Lutheran Church. She always greeted everyone with a smile and kind word. Our sympathy. - Posted by: Emil & Katie Hoas (Friend ) on: Oct 23, 2021
I moved in to the house on Harvard Avenue next to Bernie and Eileen in 1982. I was a naive first-time home owner with a newborn son taking over a huge money-pit renovation project. Shortly after we took possession of the house, the backyard fence between our properties blew down in a spring gale. Even though it should have been jointly maintained, Bernie and Eileen, seeing my financial and time stresses, offered to replace it, which they did. It was the start of a few years of knowing this wonderfully warm and helpful couple, who provided us with support and ideas in our renovations and restoring the back garden. Farewell Eileen...you were such a great neighbour! - Posted by: Neil Arnason (Former Neighbour of Bernie and Eileen) on: Oct 23, 2021
Janice, I am so sorry for your loss. Mom is in a better place, with Bernie, and no more pain. - Posted by: Cathy Costello (Friend) on: Oct 23, 2021
