Following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, Eileen Katherina Martinelli passed away peacefully with her family by her side, at the age of 56 years.
Eileen Katherina, no longer in pain and suffering, has gone to heaven to sing with the angels. She was a remarkable woman who put up a fight until her final day. She retired after 36 years of dedicated service with Nav Canada. Her biggest pride and joy was her daughter, Essence.
Eileen Katherina's memory will be cherished through her daughter Essence Martinelli; parents Ruth and Michael Martinelli; sisters Carla Irvine (Rob) and Paula Painchaud (Glen Koblun); nephews Michael and Christopher Painchaud; beloved friends, and lives of those she has touched.
A Funeral Mass for Eileen will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, 10826 - 62 Avenue, Edmonton, AB.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Hall and the staff at the Palliative Care Unit 43 at the Grey Nuns Hospital for their exceptional and compassionate care for Eileen Katherina.
Donations in her memory may be made to Pancreatic Cancer Canada or the Palliative Care Unit 43 at the Grey Nuns Hospital.
May she rest in peace.
