Eileen passed away peacefully after a battle with brain cancer.
Predeceased by her dear daughter Joanne, she is survived by Walter Orysiuk, her husband of over 54 years and by her children Kathy (David Purdy), Tom (Heidi) and Sandra Rhead (Marten) and her grandchildren, Thomas and Suzy Purdy, Eryn and Luke Orysiuk, Mitchell and Brooklyn Rhead.
Eileen was born in Bruno, Saskatchewan, the youngest of ten children of Harry and Mary (nee Kramer) Stumborg. Eileen moved to Edmonton where she met and married Walter and they raised their family. They moved to Calgary in their later years.
Eileen is predeceased by her parents, her sister Agnes Kirzinger and her brothers Jerome, Clarence and Bernie.
She is survived by her sisters Florence Pulvermacher, Julie Gibb, Eleanor Scheper and Rose Barry-MacDonald, her brother Alvin and her many nieces and nephews.
Eileen was a successful realtor and antique dealer and an avid collector. The most important thing to mom was family- Walter, their children and grandchildren. She dedicated much of her life to helping others. With boundless energy, she accomplished so much and rallied others to support her many causes. Eileen will be greatly missed and fondly remembered.
