It is with a lifetime of happy memories and love, we release our mom to her new heavenly home. Frances Eileen (Sunderland) Belyea passed away peacefully at Shannex - Tucker Hall on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Born 1932, in Campbellton, NB, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Marguerite (Chamberlain) Sunderland. Mom’s greatest joy was spending time being the center of her family, taking care of everyone. She was the rock that held us all together and we shared so many happy parties, vacations and special events together. Her excellent cooking made everything seem so much better because of the love it contained. Eileen started her career at the D.V.A Hospital and then moved over to the Regional Hospital where she worked as a ward clerk for many years until her retirement. A quiet but dedicated woman of faith, she was a member of the First Wesleyan Church where she enjoyed many years of activities and good friends.
Eileen is survived by her sons Paul (Charlene) of Hampton, Stephen (Jackie) of New River, John (Ellen) of Saint John; daughter Christine Crawford (Harold) of Saint John; sister Phyllis Boyle of Saint John; as well as many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. Besides her parents, Eileen was predeceased by her husband Norman, brother Lewis, sisters Dorothy, Marjorie and Janet and great granddaughter Khloe.
