Eileen Theresa Lewis

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Eileen Theresa Lewis, age 72, of Tidnish Head, NS.  Eileen passed away, surrounded by her loving family, on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre.

Born in Amherst, NS, she was a daughter of the late Leo and Lea (Jacob) Gould.

Eileen was a fun loving lady who enjoyed sharing her laughter, spending time with family, friends, and participating in social gatherings.  She was known for her strong independence, her integrity, and helping family friends.  At a very young age, she followed her husband Gary to British Columbia where they lived for 10 years.  She was a loving wife, and mother, and enjoyed her years working at Northern Telecom and Belastronics once they returned to Nova Scotia.  She loved to decorate, keeping up to date with modern style.  She was a member of Pick 'n Grin, playing guitar, and sharing her beautiful voice with everyone, especially sharing at nursing homes.  She loved to take country rides, camping and touring.  She and her husband Gary made great friends in Florida where they Snow-Birded for 15 years. She enjoyed their cottage home in Tidnish Head and time at the beach.

She will be dearly missed by her husband of 53 years, Gary, Tidnish Head; her daughters Gisele Lewis (Barry Inglis) and Yvette Lewis, both of Amherst; siblings Yvette (Tom) Kite, Bathurst, NB, Pauline (George) Marcial, Kelowna, BC; several nieces and nephews; as well as Gary's family and extended family.
