Eileen Jessie Richardson

April 11, 1926 - November 17, 2013


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Eileen Richardson on November 17, 2013 at Kootenay Lake Hospital.

Eileen was born in Trail, B.C. on April 11, 1926 to John and Jessie Almony and was raised in Nelson in the long time family home on Front St.  In 1949 she married Clarence Richardson and they made their home in uphill where they had their two children, Robert and Margaret.  Eileen was a loving mother, who worked hard in raising her children after the premature death of her husband.  She loved sports and was a familiar sight at Minor Hockey League games as the timekeeper and scorekeeper at Little League games when her children were growing up. 

After finishing her career at Kootenay Forest Products, she discovered her passion for ceramics and spent many years perfecting this craft.  She was a familiar sight at many craft fairs proudly selling her ceramics and visiting with people.

Eileen was a friendly, loving and generous person who will be sadly missed by all who knew her.  She is survived by her son Robert (Terri), granddaughter Tara (Jason), grandson Erik (Lisa), four great grandchildren,nieces and a nephew.  She was predeceased by her parents, husband Clarence, sister Mary and daughter Margaret.

Eileen's family would like to thank Doctors Mckechnie and Walker and the staff at KLH for the excellent care they provided.  We would also like to thank staff at both Nelson Home Support and Mountain Lakes for the wonderful, caring support provided.
