Mrs. Eileen Elizabeth Armstrong (nee Dorman) of Glacier Ridge Retirement Home passed away peacefully on Monday August 16th, 2005 with family close by. Born in Toronto, Ontario on January 24th 1914, Eileen spent her youth and school years there, graduating from University of Toronto with a degree in languages. She met and married her husband of 48 years John Albert Armstrong moving with him to Montreal, PQ, and Ottawa during the war years. They settled in Thunder Bay in 1951. Since arriving in Thunder Bay, Eileen and John were active supporters of life at St. John's Anglican Church. Together they expanded a cottage at East Loon Lake to create a summer residence for their children and grandchildren to enjoy. Upon her husband opening his own business she showed her indomitable spirit and support by returning to University of Toronto attaining her teaching certificate. Eileen spent 10 enjoyable years teaching French and Latin at Port Arthur Collegiate Institute and it always brought her great joy to see her former students. Eileen will be sadly missed by her daughter Georgina Adderley and husband Bruce of Thunder Bay, son John Armstrong and wife Carolyn of Calgary, AB, granddaughter Roberta Adderley and husband James, and grandson Sean Adderley of Thunder Bay, grandchildren Laura and Lucas Armstrong of Calgary, AB.
