She was also a teacher, farmer, upholsterer and wonderful wife and mother. Her parents were Florence (nee Loyst) and Daniel Woodward and she was the youngest of 4 after Jean, Clarence and Maude. She married Carl Eichhorst on June 20,1953 and had 3 children. Predeceased by her father, mother and 3 siblings, she is survived by her loving husband of almost 61 years, Carl,and her children: Judy and Doug Switzer, Colleen and Bob Ruttenberg and Jeff and Helga Eichhorst. She loved her grandchildren: Jesse (Laurie), Kate (Graham), Taylor (Laurie), Nick (Julie), Alec and Sam. She loved her great grandchildren: Kieryan, Shale and Andrew and was loved by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends in Nakusp and Redvers.  She is also survived by her sister-in-law Madeleine Eichhorst.  She was known for her strong faith, optimism and sense of humor.
