Eileen Twa

May 13, 1933 - April 14, 2024


Eileen Margaret Twa, born May 13 1933 passed away on April 14, 2024. She was predeceased by her parents, Walton and Effie Twa , her sister Lorraine and brothers–in–law James Severn and Walter McCallum. She is survived by sisters Jacquie and Maureen(Ted) and brothers Les (Audrey), Robert (Caroline), Alan (Carol) and Norman (Sheila), as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, and a long-time friend Julie who became as a daughter to her.

Eileen was born in Port Alberni, later moving to Salt Spring Island with her family as a teenager. She moved to Victoria to work as a care aid, living there until 2019 when she moved to Braehaven on Salt Spring Island then to Greenwoods long term care.

She loved working with the elderly, and even when in care herself always looked out for others who needed help. She kept in close contact with family and friends, visiting them and writing letters to those at a distance rather than making phone calls. She liked to cook, entertaining friends in her apartment, and making cookies and jams for family members every Christmas. Eileen was generous to others, donating to many charities that helped those in need.

She accepted Christ as her Saviour at a young age, was a faithful member of her church, and spent much time reading her Bible, and watching Christian programs on TV.

Eileen will be missed by the family she dearly loved, but is now at rest from the pain she suffered in her later years, and rejoicing in meeting her Lord in Heaven and the family members who preceded her.

We thank the staff at Braehaven and Greenwoods who were so generous with their care and love.

A memorial service will be held at Community Gospel Chapel, 147 Vesuvius By Rd. at 2 pm on May 11, 2024.
