Obituary

Eileen Jones (nee Healy) March 31, 1922 to March 30, 2020
Elora, Ontario

It is with heartfelt sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother on March 30, 2020.

Eileen was born on March 31, 1922. She was born the seventh child of Thomas and Julia Ann Healy of Knocknaboul, County Kerry, Ireland. She left Ireland for England as a young teenager and worked there as a nurse during WW II. While in England she reunited and married Daniel Jones (56 years) from County Cork. Together they immigrated to Canada in 1947 where they settled in Southern Ontario. They lived a full and happy life in Ontario farming, raising seven children, owning and operating a pure Holstein herd and a horse riding stable (Green Willows).
Eileen was predeceased by her husband Daniel (2002) her daughter Moira Quirke (2016) her son Daniel Jones (2019) and two great grandchildren Emmie (2017) and Beau (2017). She is survived by her son Denis (Pauline) Jones, daughters Sheila (Brian) Kirkconnell, Finola Jones, Kathleen (Brian) McAusland, Carmen Jarvis and daughter in law Pam Jones, grandchildren Theresa, Ryan (Jaclyn) Sarah, Nathan, Kieran, Katherine (Mike), Christina, Aislinn (Dan), Bronwen (Brennan), Cailin (Bentley), Devon, Jackie, Danielle, Elyse, Daniel, Haiden, Conor (Mellisa), Erin (Brett), Dylan (Min), Katy (Brodie) and her great grandchildren Rori, Kalia, Teddy, Ethan, Reese, Shaye, Arthur, Orla, Tighe, Rogan, Declan, Eamon, Elsa, Tully, Iris and Oliver. She is also survived by her treasured nephews Mike Jones, Thomas Jones and many other nieces, nephews and friends here and in Ireland.

As the matriarch of our family, her optimistic and joyful approach to life was an inspiration. She had a wonderful sense of fun and a genuine interest in the lives of others. She loved to read and had a particular passion for history and classic literature. Having astute insight, she provided helpful loving support and guidance to her family and many others throughout her life. She was true to her name, Eileen, a beacon of light to all of us. Just hearing her voice brought comfort. Although her voice is now silenced, her impact on all those who knew her will last a lifetime. Thank you for so much Nana. Forever cherished in our hearts. Rest in Peace.

A special thank you to our sister Finola Jones for her compassionate long-term care and devotion to our mother during the final years of her life and to Saint Luke’s retirement staff for their support and kindness at this time.

There will be a private family graveside service on Friday, April 3, 2020. A memorial celebration will be held at a later date. www.grahamgiddyfh.com

I was very sad to hear of the loss of Eileen. I enjoyed our visits and chats . I always appreciated how she was up on the news and what was going on in the world, and had her opinion on how things could be done differently, better. She would tell me stories about her family, which I didn’t know most of them but she told them with such joy I couldn’t help but be absorbed. Thank you to Finola for letting us spend some time together. Caregiving is not an easy job , but I know she appreciated it. Please take care and know I’m thinking of you at this difficult time.

Some of my most cherished childhood memories are of going up to the barn and doing chores with Nana. Feeding the animals, collecting eggs from the chickens, visiting the bunny pen, and of course evading the drake. As I grew older I began to cherish Nana's astute mind, great stories, her advice, and caring soul. You'll truly be missed Nana, love you, rest in peace.

RIP Eileen. It is sad to hear that you have died. It was part of our childhood summers to look forward to your visits to Ireland with your husband, my Uncle Danny. We were made welcome at the holiday home in Ballyheigue, by the sea where we stayed over and had great fun with our cousins. The connection with Ireland was always strong, letters and parcels arriving to our delight. For now and always Rest In Peace Eileen. Mary Finn (O'Connor) Shanaknock, Millstreet, Ireland.

Condolences to all our Canadian cousins on the death of Eileen. May she rest in peace.
'Eileen in Canada' has always been there our entire lives and we'll miss her. She took an ongoing and genuine interest in us, though we were her husband's family.
She was always the letter writer, the one who kept us all in touch. We got news of our cousins, farming news, stories about horses and shows...and much, much more. We got our Christmas cards and letters up to last Christmas, with news of grandchildren and great grandchildren. We will miss the letters.
We will also miss the long phonecalls about family news (always family first with Eileen), politics in Ireland and Canada and of course discussions about the history and myths of Ireland.
Eileen was always generous to us when we were children and facilitated us getting to know our Canadian cousins, though they were far away, through frequent visits to Ireland, over the course of nearly seventy years!
We will never forget this. We'll remember Eileen and our Uncle always, when we visit Ballydesmond and drive through Glountanefinane and Knocknabowl.
Thank you Eileen, from the other side of the Atlantic, for everything.
Ní bheidh do leithéid aríst ann, go fíorannach!
Slán leat Eibhlín! Go n-eirí do bhóthar leat!
Cristín, Des, Donnacha and Liam in Cork.
