ADAMSON, Eileen Doris (Hellard) - Passed away on July 21, 2021, in her 95th year.
Survived by her devoted husband and life companion George, having recently marked their 74th wedding anniversary.
Also survived by her brother Russell (Kay), and brothers-in-law Bill (Marlene) and Duncan.
Daughter of Walter and Bertha Hellard, sister to Irv, Vi, Frank and Marjorie, previously deceased.
Born October 5, 1926, on her father’s birthday, Eileen was a Toronto girl, born and raised. She leaves behind an extensive family who will miss her dearly: loving mother to twins David (Len) and Donald, Nancy (Fred) and Cathy (Paul), proud grandmother to Ryan (Shelli), Kourtney, Joel (Alyssa), Jake (Siobhan), Jessica, Sarah (Anthony), Hayley (Cody) and Matt and great grandmother to Charlie, Chase, Ari, Miles, Andrew, Maverick, Syve, Hank and Juniper.
She was active all her life, an avid walker, a fan of exercising. She enjoyed her home and loved her family. She also volunteered at hospitals, libraries, church groups and girls’ clubs.
Leeny will be remembered for her devotion to her family, her kind spirit and her gentle ways. She will be sorely missed by we who remain. We will treasure our memories of her forever.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff and healthcare workers at Amica Dundas, whose care of Eileen was unwaveringly kind and respectful. Eileen was known to those close to her for little quips and retorts.
In her tribute to the staff, we feel certain that she would have said ‘God bless ‘em!’
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
Should you wish, donations in Eileen's memory may be made to The Salvation Army.
