<div itemprop="description">Majorie Eileen, 73, passed away on September 24, 2014 after a two-year, courageous struggle with multiple myeloma, in the loving presence of family at Juravinski Hospital. <br />Eileen was a native of Hamilton and a graduate of the Hamilton General Nursing Class of 1963. After marrying Jack Van Nynatten in 1965, she became mother to Sandy, Debora and Barbra. Combining an active career as an operating room RN with motherhood, she also developed and enjoyed various hobbies such as folk art, quilting, knitting and gardening. She exercised throughout her life. She was the heart of the family, nourishing connections, listening to concerns and quietly offering advice. Among her favourite things were family get-togethers and time with grandchildren. After being diagnosed with multiple myeloma, Eileen fought back and enjoyed precious time with her family for almost two years. Eileen died as she lived &ndash; with modesty, dignity and grace. <br />Eileen was beloved wife of Jack for almost 50 years. She was much-loved mother to Sandy (Rick) Reisiger, Debora Van Nijnatten (Gerry Boychuk) and Barbra (Brent) Dimen. She was also grandmother (or &ldquo;Grammy&rdquo;) to Kim, Casey, Lindsay, Spencer, ShanLin, Deirdra, JiaMei and Kees, and Great-grandmother to Owen, Ava, Cameron and Carson. She was dear sister of Doug Geddie (Celine Parent). <br />The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the compassionate care of the Hematology Team at Juravinski Hospital, in particular Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Wiernikowski and Dr. Graeme Fraser. <br />In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Eileen Van Nynatten&rsquo;s name to Myeloma Canada. <br />Visitation will be held at the DODSWORTH &amp; BROWN &ndash; ANCASTER CHAPEL, 378 Wilson Street East, on Sunday, September 28th from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral service to be held at MARSHALL MEMORIAL UNITED CHURCH, 20 Gilbert Avenue in Ancaster, on Monday, September 29th at 10:30 am. <br /></div>
