Obituary of Eileen and Edward Hanchar
On June 4, 2021, Eileen (77) was reunited with her beloved husband Edward (83), who passed away on December 20, 2020. They will both be dearly missed by Ed’s loving son, Rick, granddaughter Kayla and great-granddaughter Arianna. They will be fondly remembered by Eileen’s sister Kathleen, and sister-in-law Marie, nieces, nephews and extended family. They were predeceased by Eileen’s siblings, Helen, George, Henry, Pauline and Ed’s siblings, Vivian and Donny.
Eileen was born and raised in British Columbia. In her early years she would follow in her mother and grandmother’s footsteps and work as a nurse’s aid at the Hazelton Hospital and then later at the Greater Niagara General Hospital in Niagara Falls. Ed was born in Saskatchewan. He spent his youth working on the family farm and would later go on to work at and retire from Maple Leaf Foods.
Eileen and Ed were married in December of 1984 and settled in the small community of Chippawa (Niagara Falls) where they both became members of the Chippawa Lions Club. Eileen happily served as a Lioness and Ed as a Lion. Ed dedicated many years setting up and cleaning the hall for rentals, volunteering his efforts to club service, and was honoured to have held the position of Chippawa Lions Club President. Their contributions to the community in Chippawa will be fondly remembered by all.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). In accordance with their wishes, cremation has taken place. At a later date, a Celebration of Life for Ed and Eileen will be held, and an interment will also take place at Fairview Cemetery, Niagara Falls. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Eileen and Ed may be given to the Lions Club. Online condolences may be shared on their tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
