Passed away peacefully surrounded by family in her 83rd year. Daughter of the late Elsie and Kusti Niemi. Predeceased by her husband Arnold Maki. Sister of Linda (Darrell) Collar, and the late Helen and Ronnie. Loving mother of Karen (Tim) McMillan, Norman, Wayne and Don. Cherished Grandmother of Heidi (Chad), Liisa (Jeff), Laura (Josh), and Joey. Loving Great Grandmother of Taylor, Kira, Avery, Tyson, Evan, Myles, Talan and Leo. Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephew.
Eileen enjoyed her many trips with her son Wayne and family as well as many enjoyable evenings with Connie at bingo. Growing up during the depression, the values she learned then served her well throughout her life while raising her own family at Wabos.
A private family service will be held. Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre (492 Wellington St. East, 705-759-2522).
The family would like to extend their thanks to the staff at the F. J. Davey Home and Dr. Fritz for their care and compassion. Being an avid lover of cats, donations in Eileen’s memory to the Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society would be appreciated.
