July 25, 1951 – July 1, 2020
With great sadness, our family shares the peaceful passing of a beloved sister and aunt on the evening of July 1, 2020. She fought well an illness of over three years and lived hopefully, fully enjoying life.
Eileen leaves to miss her dearly; her sister Rosemary (Bob) McLeod, her niece Heather (Ty) Gillis, their children Alyssa and Parker, all of Okotoks area, and her niece Kate Lynn McLeod in Manitoba. In England, she leaves Adrienne (Stamp) and Keith Motion, their children Grant and Alice of Walmer, Kent and her cousin Robert (Mary) Lenzini of Sheffield. She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Dale John Stamp (2000), her parents Peter and Mary Rice and her nephew Adam.
Eileen was born July 25, 1951, in Kingston, Ontario and named for the Royal Princess on tour. Eileen graduated from Brockville General Hospital School of Nursing ’72 and later earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Waterloo. She worked as an RN and later, as an Infection Control Practitioner for AHS in Red Deer with colleagues who became good friends. Researching, understanding and applying the ever changing science of infection control was her passion. In Red Deer, she discovered her second passion in The Hot Diggity Dogs Agility Club with her Georgie Girl. Eileen supported animal welfare and rescue, SPCA, Backpacks for Children, numerous school and sports fundraisers and food banks. Eileen always had a kind word and generous offering to those she met in need.
Eileen enjoyed family activities, attending Alyssa and Parker’s school concerts, sports, hockey games, music recitals and horse shows. She was their favourite auntie and cheerleader. In her spare time, she enjoyed the theatre, golfing, cooking, painting, card making and Tai Chi.
A private family observance, as was Eileen’s wish, follows with internment with her late husband Dale in Okotoks Cemetery.
Arrangements are in the hands of Snodgrass Funeral Home, and messages may be left on their web page. In memory of Eileen, we respectfully suggest any donation to animal welfare or the charity of your choice.
We are grateful for the many cards and calls of kindness already sent and the kind and present support of Dr. Lynn Teasell. Obituary
