Eileen Laura Weeks, beloved wife of Charles Weeks of Calgary, passed away suddenly on Thursday, March 23, 2006 after a short illness at the age of 78 years.
Eileen was born on September 7, 1927 in Lethbridge, AB. She resided in Carmangay, High River and Calgary. While in Calgary, she attended Henderson’s Secretary School; later working in the Oil and Gas Industry where she met and married Charlie, her husband of fifty-two years. Shopping, gardening, curling, cooking and golfing were all enjoyable pastimes for Eileen. She had a passion for great mystery books and took pleasure in volunteering at her children’s and grandchildren’s schools. Eileen was without a doubt the apple of her families’eyes.
Besides her loving husband Charlie, Eileen is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Gail and Glenn Howarth; and three grandchildren, Brian, Amelia and Paul. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law Gloria Rousseau and Ted of Edmonton; and numerous nieces and nephews. Eileen was predeceased by her daughter Laura.
