    • EILEEN SCHWEITZER (nee: Schildroth) 1918 - 2007 Passed away peacefully at Sunnyside Home on Thursday, November 15, 2007 in her 90th year. She was born on August 10, 1918 on a farm outside of New Hamburg to William and Alberta Schildroth (Hesse) and had many fond memories of going to public school and Sunday school in New Hamburg. Her family later moved to Kitchener where she eventually worked at Smiles? n Chuckles.

      Eileen married Lorne Schweitzer in 1940 (predeceased March 25, 1982) and has two daughters, Paula (Bruce) Scheifele and Wendy Payne. She always put others first in her life and was always there to help anyone who needed her. She is especially remembered with great affection by her three grandsons, Steven, Scott, and Mark Scheifele with whom she developed a wonderful rapport. She will also be missed by her adopted daughter Joy Becker, her brother Donald and his wife Collette of Vancouver, sister-in-law Mae Schildroth and great grandchildren Brooke and Eric (Charlotte Bruder), Jacob, Sarah and Joseph (Stephanie Wunder) and Ella, Jack and Tessa (Kelly Schroeder).

She also worked at the Nurses Residence of K-W Hospital as receptionist and house mother for the nurses.

      The family wishes to thank Judy and the wonderful staff of Castle Kilbride at Sunnyside Home where she received the very best care for the past five years.
