new_eialinaMarch 28, 1939 – May 29, 2013
Gently her spirit flew from us on May 29th, 2013 at high noon. Our beloved EIALINA ARMFELT answered her call from the sacred and passed away in her home with family and friends encircling her. With many days of ceremony, songs, prayers and challenging goodbyes….a deep sense of peace and spirit was present through the last days of her life. Her family would like to express gratitude for the wonderful support over the last weeks of Eialina’s life; the flowers, the yummy foods, poems, prayers and messages of love. An open Celebration of her Life will be held on June 9th, from 2-5pm, at CorUnum Center (Louise Taylor’s 5990 Old West Saanich Road, Victoria) with all welcome. Her ashes will be placed at the base of one of her Peace Poles at O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE (Shawnigan Lake) – which she helped found in 1999. Her caring and unending joy will live on in all of us whose lives she changed by loving us.
