She grew up in the Melfort area. She later married Everett Sharp and together they moved to the Paynton area where they farmed for nearly 40 years. When Everett retired from farming they moved to North Battleford. Eileen was a talented seamstress and worked at Craig’s clothing store and did other sewing on the side. She also quilted, crocheted and knit. Many family members are fortunate enough to have quilts, afghans and her other wonderful creations. Many of Eileen’s family were in attendance at her 100th birthday celebration less than 3 weeks ago. Despite her extraordinary age, Eileen was fortunate enough to live a remarkably independent life. Left to mourn are her children Wayne (Bea), Joan, Betty and Natalie (Brian), 13 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, 13 great great grandchildren, her siblings & their families, daughters-in-law Deanna and Julie and her friends.

The family wish to thank the staff at Harwood Manor for Eileen’s care in the last few years, the staff at the University Hospital for their compassionate care in the last few days and family friend Shelby Grueter for being in attendance as Eileen made her last journey.
