Henstridge, Eileen Carol (née Walker) - It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Eileen on Wednesday, July 15th, 2020 at Wenleigh Long Term Care Residence in Mississauga, Ontario. Eileen had celebrated her 90th birthday in April 2020 and enjoyed a wonderful life filled with memories of camping, hosting bridge parties, participating in activities with the American Woman’s Club of Toronto, and volunteering with the Anglican Church. She always loved seeing family and friends. She had a special bond with animals. She always made sure there was room for dessert after a meal and the desserts she made were delicious, she will always be with us when we make her wonderful recipes throughout the year. Predeceased by her husband of 58 years William (2009), her brother Richard (2012) and sister Shirley (2015). She will be deeply missed by her sons Eric (Ruth), Paul, and Robert (Anna), her grandchildren Ian Jeffrey (Laura), Elizabeth Straub (Adam), Andrew (Erin), Christine (Tyler), and Sandra (Aaron), and great-grandchildren Isla and Karis Jeffrey. Also, her special niece Lois Nightingale. A heartfelt thank you to the caregivers at The Wenleigh. It was home for Eileen. The care they provided for her was truly amazing. Her final days were very comforting. Eileen is at peace and is reunited with William, her parents William Henry and Gertrude, her siblings Richard and Shirley, and her cats Misty and Shadow. She was cremated in Lindsay, Ontario. The Interment and memorial service will be held at St. James Cemetery, Toronto in 2021. Memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or a local hospital of your choice.

Joan and I (Ossie) wish to extend our sincere sympathy and condolences to the Henstridge family and all her relatives. Although it has only been in the last 6 years plus, while visiting my Uncle and Aunt at the The Wenleigh, that I have come to know Eileen. ,Our friendship grew and it sure did not seem to be that short. She was always smiling and giving a warm hello up to the last day I would have seen her just prior to March 14, 2020 lock down due to the Pandemic.

I hope that the many memories, happy and joyful times will be lasting memories for each of you which you would share when you reminisce. We will pray for her soul and for each of you.

May she rest in peace,

Ossie and Joan
