Eileen passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 25, 2010. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Meril Sereda; daughter, Cathy; Cathy’s husband, Jim; grandson, Matt; as well as many nieces and nephews. Eileen was predeceased by her son, John in 1966; one brother; and three sisters.
Even though her family was spread throughout Canada, she kept close relationships with all of them. Eileen was the glue that held the family together. Besides setting up warm and welcoming homes in many cities in Canada, she will be remembered for her great sense of humour, her love of entertaining, and the flakiest pie pastry anywhere.
Reverend Roger H. Keeler will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 am on Thursday, September 30, 2010, at St. Michael-Resurrection Catholic Church, 10555 – 50 A Street, Edmonton. Interment to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
Eileen’s family wishes to thank the staff at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital for their tender care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 10985 124th Street, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H9, would be appreciated.
