Obituary

Obituary for Eileen Morris

The family of Gladys Eileen Morris is saddened to announce her passing on Friday, February 8, 2019 at Trillium Court, Kincardine.

Wife of the late Andrew Morris. Beloved mother of Jim (Josie) Morris of Glammis, Helen (Steve Crossley) Tovey of Kincardine Township, and Lorna (Clayton Lemay) Carston of Bolton. Grandma to Lauren, Katie, Michael (Samantha Bester), Heather, Andrew, Kailey, John, and Rachel. Great-grandma of Darren, Bentley, and Cian. Eileen will be remembered by her sisters; Teeny Garland of Pinkerton and Shirley (Bob) Bourgeois of Walkerton, in-laws; Shirley Thompson of Glammis, Eleanor Thompson of Kincardine, and Felix Brockway of Brampton.

Eileen is predeceased by her beloved daughter, Anne Brockway and Anne-Marie in-infancy. Brothers; Howard, Ron, Lloyd and Stewart (Vina) Thompson, and sister Belva (Bob) Agar. Brother-in-law Arthur Garland.

At 17, Eileen finished high school in Walkerton and moved to her sister, Belva's in Stratford to attend Normal School to obtain her teaching certification. By 19 she was teaching in a one room schoolhouse back in Glammis. She taught until retirement 40 years later, much of that in the Bruce Central School, and Kincardine Township School. In 1956, she married Andrew Morris and moved to the farm on the 10th concession of Kincardine. Teaching, farming, raising 4 children and obtaining her university degree occupied the next 25 years. Mom put her heart into everything she did. We were repeatedly reminded, "Anything worth doing, is worth doing well."
She loved teaching and in return she was loved by many children she taught. One of these children that she taught in the late 50's, Sandy Bill Henderson, called mom every year on her birthday. How she loved to get that call. After retirement, Eileen kept every bit as busy as before caring for her grandchildren, volunteering for the Heart and Stroke Association, and helping write the history of Glammis.
When her health declined, Eileen moved into Tiverton Park Manor where she reconnected with old friends and made new ones. For the past 2 years, as her Alzheimers significantly progressed, Eileen was blessed by being cared for by the staff at Trillium Court. Our family is so appreciative of the love and respect that mom was treated with by all members of the long term care staff. And we marvel at the kindness of those palliative care volunteers who are so generous with their time and love .
We also want to express our gratitude to those friends and relatives who continued to visit Mom even as those visits became increasingly difficult. Marg McKinnon, a dear neighbour and old friend, visited regularly until the end. Ever gentle and kind, the last words I heard Mom say after months of silence were "Thank You" when one of her caregivers made her more comfortable last week.

Friends and relatives are invited for a casual memorial visitation from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 17, 2019 at Cameron Funeral Home, Walkerton.

A service celebrating Eileen's life will be held at later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to Heart & Stroke Foundation and Alzheimer Society, would be appreciated by the family. Cards available at the funeral home (519-881-1273) Donations and condolences may also be made online at www.cameronfuneralhomes.com
