Ilene Mitchell (nee Hillman) passed away after a brief illness, with family at her side, on Mon., July 15, 2013.
She was predeceased by her parents, Roy and Annie (McGuire) Hillman. She was the loving mother to Jenny (Don), Janice (Charles), Melanie (Trevor), and Kerry. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Jared and Jamie Hull; Colin and Ian Hickman; Ethan Mitchell; and Clare Hopkins, and by her great-grandchildren, Dylan, Josh, Paige, Aidan, Addison, and Bronwyn.
Ilene graduated from the Toronto General Hospital School of Nursing, and treasured her friendships from the class of 1947. She touched many lives in a long and distinguished career as a registered nurse, and she lived her life with love, compassion, and song. Her strength and good humour inspired all who knew her.
At Ilene’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral service. There will be a private interment at a later date in Brampton.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The War Amps of Canada.
The arrangements were entrusted to Cole Funeral Services in Ottawa (613-831-7122).
