Eileen Gardiner Obituary
Eileen Gardiner Of Novato, passed peacefully on April 6, 2014, following a long hospitalization for cancer. She was 88 years young. By her side was her beloved husband of 62 years, John Gardiner, her children, and grandchildren. She bravely fought with grace and dignity, keeping her sights set on her granddaughters' upcoming weddings and the birth of her first great grandchild. She was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, received her Bachelor of Arts from Queens University in Ontario, and married John in 1951. In 1968, they moved their family to California, where John began his own business in Sausalito and they enjoyed raising their three children in Ignacio with wonderful neighbors. Eileen was a creative homemaker and volunteer for Sunny Hills. She was a strong advocate for the less fortunate. Eileen loved traveling, music and the Arts, Marin Speakers Series, and the Garden Club at MCC. She was generous, had a kind spirit, felt blessed in life, and had a great sense of humor. Their family and friends were the most precious of life's gifts, especially after losing their beloved son Richard in 2003 to Diabetes. Eileen will be forever missed by John, daughter Val Fiscalini, son Russ (Sheila), grandchildren Chris Fiscalini (Allison), Katie Fiscalini, Jenn Gardiner Piovan (Marco), Mike Gardiner, Kathleen Gardiner; as well as Mary Ellen Gardiner, Terri Birrenkott (John), John Gardiner (Jill), and Theresa Gardiner. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a Hospice donation. Private services are being planned; arrangements through Adobe Creek Funeral Home, Petaluma.
