EILEEN TERESA SANKEY (MACDONALD) In loving memory of our mother Eileen Teresa Sankey (MACDonald), who passed away peacefully on Sunday evening. Loving daughter of Angus and Olivia MACDonald; sister to Donald, Gloria and Gordon; sister-in-law to Mary MACDonald, Leo MCKenna (deceased) and Helene MACDonald; widow to William (Bill) Sankey; mother to Louise (deceased), Mark, Mike and Stuart; grandmother to Jacqueline and Jennifer and mother-in-law to Janet MCDonald. Eileen led a robust life with the enthusiasm of a free spirit honed in her home province of Nova Scotia. She led a full life with lots of creation and adventure. Eileen was one of the first Air Attendants on TWA; a caring registered nurse, successful real estate agent and accomplished artist. Over the years she showed tremendous fortitude caring for her mother in her later years, raising four rather demanding and challenging children, maintaining her career and love of art throughout. Eileen had a zest for life and touched many people during her time on Earth. Those who she encountered will have a smile on their face as they regale a tale about Eileen. She will be missed greatly by all, let her rest in peace and find that big canvas in the sky! Viewing (3:00 - 7:00 p.m.) and service (7:00 - 7:30 p.m.) will be held at the Lynett Funeral Home at 3299 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON M6P 2A5, this Saturday, January 5, 2013. We will meet at Uncle Stuart's house at 3285 Dundas Street West, following the ceremony.
