Eileen Coffey (nee Power) was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Surrounded by family, she passed peacefully away at home after a courageous battle with ALS on May 19th, 2023 at the age of 70.

She was born to Alice and Alan Power on June 30th, 1952, raised in Branch with a large family of brothers and sisters. As a beautiful young woman she married Ignatius Coffey in 1971 and together had 5 beautiful children Stephanie, Andy, Vanessa, Tanya and Tony.

Eileen loved her children and family first and foremost. She loved spending time in the kitchen preparing delicious meals and desserts for not only her family but also for anyone who entered her home. Her love of her family and her job as a teacher was surpassed only by her kind and generous nature which she endowed in her own children. She loved to laugh and had a gift for making those she knew feel special
and important.

A special thanks to homecare workers who helped fulfill her wishes to remain at home during her illness and final days.

A procession will leave Maher’s Funeral Home in Placentia at 3pm on Sunday, May 21st for a visitation at Sacred Heart Church in St. Bride’s. Visitation will continue on Monday, May 22nd, with a prayer service at 7pm.  A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for 11am on Tuesday, May 23rd in St. Bride’s followed by burial in Holy Rosary Cemetery, Branch.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the ALS Society of Newfoundland on her behalf.
