HEDLEY, EILEEN GERTRUDE. It is with a tinge of sadness and a million happy memories of a long life well and joyfully lived that we record the passing of Eileen Gertrude Hedley (nee: Taylor), who left us Aug. 6, 2011, at Finlay Pavilion, White Rock, BC.

Born June 18, 1923 in Nipawin, SK, Eileen moved briefly to Winnipeg to begin work as a bank teller, but returned to Nipawin to assist her mother, Ethel, in the care of her ailing father, Edgar, and the operation of the family coffee shop. Married April 29, 1950 in Winnipeg to Royal Canadian Air Force veteran and long-time Trans-Canada Airlines (Air Canada) mechanic and crew chief John Hamblin Hedley (1919 – 2000), she is survived by their sons Rick (Angelika), Ladner, BC, and Bruce, Pembroke, ON; brothers Jim (Deborah), West Vancouver, and Ken (Lillian), Red Deer, AB; brother-in-law Tony, Surrey, BC and myriad nephews, nieces and friends who will miss and remember her with fondness.
