From: Dan Melody
Relation: Friend of Family

A very Proud and Independant Woman, who looked after her Family with an Eagle eye and lots of caring, compassionate Love.
Hopefully she’s able to ride her bike beside Al’s again, touring Heaven and watching over those left behind.

From: Janette MacFadyen Davis
Relation: long time friend of eileen`s (70s)

Eileen was a very special friend to me. She helped me out of my timid
shell in my teens. Eileen and Al would take me to many hockey games
to see their son kim play. We would go for bike rides together, have tea and talk.
We remained friends by phone and visits when I came to cranbrook to
see my parents. I will miss her, she was a lovely person. Her and Al
can ride bikes together once again.

My mom Margaret MacFadyen would like to send her condolences to
the family. My mom would join me in some visits with eileen.

I feel Eileen is very happy to be with her loving husband Al, they were
very close.

From: Pat Fennessy R.E.
Relation: Just a friend

Sorry to learn of mothers passing on. She was a good lady. She and Al were an institution on their bikes riding all over town. I enjoyed her company on several road trips taking her to visit family in Kelowna. May you find the remberances on the internet of some comfort. Losing the matriarch of the family leaves a large void which cannot ever be filled by another. May she rest in peace.

From: Eileen Burston
Relation: We were fiends years ago.

To all the Burston Family you have our deepest condolences.
