BIDGOOD, Eileen Evelyn (nee Nicholson) Died peacefully August 16, 2002 at the age of 81 years at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, 5th floor Palliative Care Unit surrounded by her loving family.

Eileen was born to Daniel and Ethel Nicholson on May 31, 1921 in Mt. Lehman, B.C. She is predeceased by her parents; two brothers (Russell and Daniel); and her husband Bid (Frank). Eileen is survived by her daughter Wendy of Vancouver; son Nicholas (Darcee) of Victoria; granddaughter Kyla (Victoria); grandson Ian (Victoria); sister Shirley (Bert) Ross of Port Hardy; and numerous nieces and nephews. Eileen was a gifted teacher whose career spanned 25 years from DeRoche to New Westminster School Districts. In 1977 Eileen and Bid moved to Nanoose, where they enjoyed their retirement years. Eileen was an active member of several community clubs. Her fondest activity was having house guests. Those who had the privilege of knowing Eileen have been blessed. The family would like to acknowledge the tremendous support of neighbors, friends, and extended family especially, Pat MacDonald and Leone Robertson. We are also especially grateful for the wonderful care provided by the staff of the Palliative Care Unit at N.R.G.H.
