Obituary of Charlotte Eytcheson
Charlotte Mary Eytcheson
February 5, 1938 ~ December 26, 2021
It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Charlotte Mary Eytcheson (nee McIlwrath) on December 26, 2021 at the age of 83 years. Her family was blessed to be able to share their love with her over the holiday season.
Charlotte was born on February 5th, 1938 in Toronto, Ontario to George and Margaret McIlwrath. Soon after, they moved to the Spruce Home area where they ran a dairy farm. Charlotte undertook many of the farm duties as an only child. She graduated as Valedictorian from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy in 1960. She was married the same year to Robert (Roy) Eytcheson.
Charlotte and Roy welcomed their two children, Christopher and Susan, in 1960 and 1961 respectively, both born on December 29th.
Charlotte, Roy, and the kids lived in Saskatoon where she worked at Saskatoon City Hospital and Pinder’s Drugs until they purchased Assiniboia Pharmacy in 1980 where she worked until early retirement in 1994.
Charlotte then moved to Prince Albert in 1995 to be closer to her family after the passing of Roy, where she lived until her death.
Charlotte’s favourite things were her many adventures exploring Northern Saskatchewan, times spent at the family cabin at East Trout Lake, and animals of all kinds. She passed these loves on to both of her children and her grandchildren.
Charlotte is lovingly remembered by her children Susan Holbird and Chris Eytcheson; her grandchildren Jaime Craig, Jesse Eytcheson, Samantha Holbird (Jeff Marciniuk), and Joel Holbird (Abby Truesdale). She is preceded by her parents George and Margaret McIlwrath, her husband Robert Eytcheson, and many beloved pets.
There will be a service held for immediate family at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to your local SPCA in Charlotte’s name.
Condolences may be sent to the family at www.grays.ca. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Gray's Funeral Chapel, (306) 922-4729.
