COOMEY, Eileen
(July 3, 1928-February 10, 2008)
Adored mother of Shirley EVANS and Marion COOMEY, grandmother of Jeffrey and Stephanie EVANS, mother-in-law of John EVANS, sister of Alan ROXBY, died February 10th in Oakville. She met numerous health challenges with a combination of humour, wisdom and grace that impressed everyone who met her. She lived in her beloved home until right before she died, maintaining her fierce determination to be independent. Eileen worked for many years alongside her cherished husband John COOMEY (1920-1994.) She loved to travel the world with her family, was a passionate fan of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio (especially the gardening phone in show), read the Toronto Star cover to cover every day, recently discovered the joys of Google and online checkers, spent her summers tending to her amazing garden and most of all, she provided unconditional love, warmth, support and generosity to her daughters and grandchildren. The sparkle in her beautiful blue eyes, her keen intelligence, her kindness, her inner strength&hellip will remain always with us. Eileen did not want a service or funeral. There will be a private cremation and family celebration of her life, as per her wishes. If desired, donations can be made to the Arthritis Society of Canada. Condolences may be sent care of the Ward Funeral Home at
