November 4, 1957 – January 15, 2013
Eileen Kelly passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer.
Eileen spent many a happy day at the family cabins enjoying long walks with her family and dogs or rafting on the Bow River. She also enjoyed the wildlife and taking many pictures. Knitting, needlepoint and a variety of craft making projects kept Eileen busy in her off time. Anyone close to Eileen knew the importance of family, which led to her passion in researching family history. Eileen kept a small but close circle of friends, whom she shared many happy times and memories. She will always be remembered for her courage, warm smile and infectious laugh. Forever in our hearts she will be remembered and sadly missed.
She was the beloved mother of Cory (Clare) Gravelle. Eileen was also cherished by sisters; Margaret (Gordon) Bourgoin and Patricia(George) Smith, nieces; Jacqueline (Trevor) Howard, Ashley Smith (Ryan Geistlinger), Erika (Steve) Huska and loving great nephews and niece Jonas, Ripley and Ethan. She will also be greatly missed by her extended family and many friends.
