Eileen MacNeil – 1920-2017

Eileen MacNeil
1920-2017
Mac NEIL, Eileen – Age 96 years. She was born in Antigonish
on April 30, 1920, passed away in Ottawa on Tuesday, January 10,
2017. Guided by her deep faith and belief in the importance
of family and community, she lived a full and rich life in which she
played many roles: daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt,
friend, and volunteer. For 94 years she lived in Lower River
Inhabitants, a community of which she was fiercely proud and to which
she contributed in a myriad of ways including through church, CWL,
Home and School Association, Athletic Association, Chamber of
Commerce, Hospital volunteer and whatever else needed to be done to
make it a little better place to live.
Eileen taught in various schools for nine years, and was the
long-time manager of the Riverdale Credit Union from which she retired
in 1980. She loved nothing better than an evening playing
cards, friends dropping in for a cup of tea, music in the community
hall, reading, baking, cuddling one of her cats, crossword puzzles,
knitting, crocheting and keeping up on the news.
She had over 40 wonderful years with her husband, Kenney, who
died in 1989. She will be greatly missed by her son, Michael
and daughter- in- law, Helen Beck and her four grandchildren, Ian
(Chelsea Pepin), Ross, David and Mark. Her son Kenney Paul (Marlene
Eager) died in 1997. She was the daughter of the late Joseph
and Rose Ann (Tompkins) McCarthy and the beloved sister of Pat, Jessie
(Colin Proctor), Anne (Percy Proctor), Sister
Mary, Vincent (Gertrude McNamara), Maurice (Dicksey Conrad)
and Teresa all of who died before her. She was very fond of
her 15 nieces and nephews and their extended families.
Visitation for Eileen will be from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Sunday
in Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. Funeral mass will
be 11 a.m. Monday from St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church,
Lower River Inhabitants with Father Doug MacDonald officiating. Burial

donations may be made to St. Francis de Sales Building Fund or to a
charity of one’s choice. Words of comfort may be forwarded

missed.
