GREEN, Eileen Agnes (nee Murch) formerly Richard – It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Eileen A. Richard Green, nee Murch. She was married to Bill Green (veteran of the Korean War) for nearly 50 years.
Her greatest joy was her sons: Jack and his wife Sandie, of Bright; Jim and his wife Sheila, of Ayr; Bruce and his wife Jocelyn, of Keswick; and Paul and his wife Heather, of Guelph. She also leaves to mourn her beloved grandchildren Mallory (Travis), David, Mike, Alex, Andrew, Katherine (Clark), Jack, Olivia, Lucie and Sophie.
She had a lifelong friend in Marg Oldfield, of Cambridge.
Eileen was born in Preston on April 6, 1929, daughter of Bill and Della Murch.
She was predeceased by her brothers, Doug and Jack, both World War II veterans.
Eileen grew up as an active member of Knox Presbyterian Church, volunteering as a Sunday School teacher, President of the Ladies Aid, and president of the Women’s Evening. She was a member of the IODE and looked forward to her weekly Bridge Club group. Eileen cherished the cottage her father built in Penetanguishene and she and Bill moved there in 1975. She and Bill spent many winters in Mexico before buying a winter home in Port Charlotte. She returned to her beloved Preston in 2007. Eileen had many talents including cooking, knitting, sewing, and quilting. She will be proudly remembered as a true hockey mom and grandmom. Her keen sense of humour and quick wit will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Krys. Munoz for her support, and to the many people who cared for her, including Fairview Suites Retirement Home, CCAC, and Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
A celebration of her life will be held at Ayr Chapel, Wm. Kipp Funeral Home, in Ayr, on Monday, April 17 at 1pm. Friends will be welcomed after 12:00 PM. There will be a private family interment later.
In lieu of flowers, donations to CNIB Literacy and Accessible Publishing or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
