Eileen Gladys Fossum, February 16, 1954 (Estevan), of Frontier Sask, passed away in Regina, Sask on Tuesday, May 9 2017, at the age of 63 years old with her family by her side.
Eileen will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 37 years, Warren, her children Michelle (Michael) Lee of Lubbock TX, Bryce (Jennifer) Fossum of Frontier, Drew (Tiffany) Fossum of Okotoks, Brittany (Trent) Wagner of Swift Current and Dayton (Jacey) Fossum of Frontier. She will be missed dearly by her grandkids Brennan Lee, Tatum Lee, Linden Wagner, Katie Fossum, Ashlyn Wagner, Beau Fossum, Piper Fossum, Oak Fossum and Claire Wagner.
She will be missed by her brother Bill (Tessa) Knight and Sisters Berva (Daryl) Kolke and Donna (Al) Knight-Waters; her mother in-law Evelyn Fossum, brother in law Gary (Ingrid) Fossum and sister in-law Brenda (Brent) Irvine and countless nieces, nephews and cousins.
Eileen is predeceased by her parents Don and Gladys Knight of Estevan Saskatchewan and her Father-in-law Richard Fossum.
A love of family defined Eileen and shaped how she lived her life. Family suppers, holidays, camping trips and endless cups of coffee were punctuated with intense laughter and embellished stories (mostly by her sons). When Eileen was not taxiing kids to volleyball, hockey and basketball, she worked proudly as a nurse for 40 years across multiple disciplines.
In the last few years, Eileen filled her days with loving devotion to her grandkids. They all knew the certainties of Grandma’s house: treats were on demand, the Crayola markers were always fresh and Grandma’s love was unconditional.
Those wishing may make donations in Eileen’s memory can make them to the Frontier Recreation Centre or the Long Term Care Facility in Shaunavon.
