Eileen Milsom

October 20, 1943 - September 13, 2017


It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Eileen Milsom at home after a long battle with cancer. She will be sadly missed by her husband of 53 years Robert (Bob) Milsom, sons Ian (Jackie) and David (Margaret), granddaughters Sophia and Estelle and niece Elaine (Anthony) Currie.

Eileen was born in County Durham, England. She attended St. Joseph’s Convent in West Hartlepool, where she was a good student and excelled as an athlete.

In 1964, Eileen married Bob and in 1965, they had their son, Ian. In 1968, the family moved to Zambia, where David was born. The family then moved to Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in 1972 and in 1979 made their final move to Canada to start a new life in Powell River.

 Eileen was a champon golfer and lawn bowler, and enjoyed pickle ball, walking by the ocean, reading, travelling and spending happy winters in Arizona.

Eileen will be remembered for her courage, strength, friendly disposition and positive attitude. She was an inspiration to the people around her.

No service by request. A celebration of Eileen’s life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Eileen’s memory to

Powell River Hospice Society at or mailed to

14-4020 Saturna Avenue, Powell River, BC, Canada, V8A 5T4.
