On November 2, 2012, Eileen Groff of Sherwood Park, formerly of Winnipeg, peacefully went to be with Ted "her valentine" of 58 years, at the age of 88.
Eileen will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her four daughters Pat (James) Stansberry, Diane (Lloyd) Kuefler, Carol (Steve) Groff-Drury and Joanne Groff; her 12 grandchildren Michael (Jason), Karen (Steven), Laura, Heather, Lindsay, Megan, Amy, Morgan, Taylor, Mathew (Jen), Daniel and Sydney; and her great-grandchildren Elias, Claire and Declan.
Eileen was devoted to her family and always remembered the loving-kindness her grandmother showed her growing up. Her love of the lake and spending summers with family and friends, has carried on with her daughters and their families. She embraced God's gifts of nature and the gentleness of animals; especially her loyal puppy of 17 years, Samantha. Ted and Eileen enjoyed many wonderful trips to Europe and Hawaii where she loved the flowers and shopping. An avid movie and chocolate lover, she knew everyone's favorite treat. Eileen will be remembered for her soft, generous heart and her passion for family. Many thanks to Eileen's friends and caregivers for being a blessing to her and her family.
A Celebration of Her Life will be held at her home on December 26, 2012, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for close friends and family.
Donations may be made in memoriam to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
