Eileen Louise Frank Dyer (September 24, 1924 – June 25, 2014) of High River passed away peacefully on June 25, 2014 at the age of 89 years. She was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Jack; her sister Vi Bradley; her sisters in law Muriel MacGillivray and Dorothy McFadden; and brother in law Bill Dyer. She is survived by her daughter Tobbi Dyer of Halifax, her son-in-law Jamie Hartling and her grandchildren Benjamin and William. She is further survived by her sisters Jo Demaria and Darlene Harper (John), and her brother Jim Frank (Ida). Eileen grew up in Maidstone, Saskatchewan and spent her early adult years in Calgary, where she met her husband Jack. They spent most of their working lives in Ottawa, where they raised their daughter Tobbi. Eileen loved children and animals, and showed motherly affection for many of Tobbi’s friends; especially Donna Courrier who many thought was her second daughter. Eileen was a versatile and accomplished artist and created oil paintings, custom designed bird houses, hand sewn clothing and costumes, cloth dolls, miniature furniture, rock gardens, and driftwood creations. She and Jack enjoyed spending summers at their lake-front cottage where they eagerly welcomed guests. Although she never learned to swim, Eileen loved to fish; especially while floating on the back of a blow-up dingy with a dog sleeping on her back. After their retirement, Eileen and Jack returned to Alberta where they enjoyed hosting large family dinners. Eileen was famous for her orange and rhubarb pie! She dearly loved her grandchildren and was proud of their accomplishments. A memorial service was held at the home of Pam and David Berrigan, Black Diamond on Saturday, June 28th at 1 p.m. Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the South Health Campus Rapid Access Unit for their compassionate care and support during her last days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Lung Association or South Health Campus hospital. To send condolences and view Eileen’s Tribute Page please visit www.lylereeves.com .
