Daughter, granddaughter, niece, sister, dancer, student leader. Born January 5, 1981, in Ridgeway, Ontario Died January 20, near Belleville, Ontario, in a car accident, aged 21.
Eileen grew up in a small town where she spent most of her time either dancing at her mother's dance studio or running wild on her grandmother's farm. "Eileen the Bunny Queen" was an early nickname that reflected her love of rabbits. But she spent time with more that just rabbits -- there were also all of those raccoons, squirrels, chickens, turkeys and, of course, horses. Later, she even managed to integrate cats, dogs and rabbits into her university life.
She grew into a beautiful young woman with a dazzling smile and what seemed to be boundless energy. She once told her housemate that she found sleep boring. As she matured she became immersed in myriad activities but family remained at the centre of her life. She was a loving daughter to her father Charlie, and a mentor to her younger brother Karl and sister Meaghan.
Eileen's interests and those of her mother meshed to a greater extent than they do for many mothers and daughters. One of those passions was dance. Her final performances were in Casa Del Sol, Spain. An extraordinary bonding took place among the dance Friends as they travelled and worked together.
Eileen's high school years left their mark on her teachers. One teacher, Ken GIBBONS, found working closely with her at the student leadership camp to be "a joy and learning experience for me. She was a natural teacher who knew the material and showed a genuine concern for those she was leading. The greatest thrill for a teacher is to know even one person like Eileen." Hugh O'BRIAN, founder of Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership, recalls Eileen's qualities at the World Leadership Congress, calling her "a true achiever and a great representative of Canada."
This straight-A student somehow managed to spend a year as president of her high-school student council, stay involved in sports, and receive the 1999 Award for Excellence and the Principal's Leadership Award before entering Queen's University in 2000 where she majored in Development Studies and Sociology.
While at Queen's she took a job as a waitress at Summerhill (the principal's official residence, which is used for entertaining). There, her poise, self-confidence and engaging personality resulted in her meeting and getting to know many people, including members of Queen's Board of Trustees, honorary-degree recipients, and Members of Parliament.
From her first year on campus Eileen became involved in the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (now known as Withinsight) which is a Queen's student-run initiative. This annual conference takes place in Ottawa and attracts students from across the country who come to hear government, business and other community leaders speak or lead workshops. It was at that conference one year, that Eileen met Richard, who became her true love.
Eileen became the national director of the 2003 conference, but she did not get to see the results of her hard work; the accident that took her life occurred three days before the conference was to begin. Her executive team members were devastated by her loss but came together to run a very successful conference in her honour. In future conferences, there will be an annual award offered in her name.
Upon hearing of her death, Al FISHER, a professor of music at Queen's, wrote: "I found her (to be) a vital, intelligent and accomplished young person. The cruelty of a sudden, violent death for such a treasure is profoundly numbing."
Lesley KRIEGER is Eileen's mother, Karen McDONALD her aunt; Bob SILVERMAN, Dean of Arts and Science at Queen's, a friend.
