Aileen was born on July 15, 1956, the 5th of 6 children to Lorne and Gwen Drummond. Aileen began her schooling in the Camille School, then moved to Holland for the rest of her elementary schooling, and on to Treherne for high school. Aileen spent a large amount of her time in the workforce as a short order cook in Brandon. She visited family and friends in the Holland area as often as she could, and recently returned to her home town.
Aileen’s greatest interest and gift to all was her soprano voice and love of music. Growing up as a member of Myrtle Young’s Holland United Church Choir, Aileen would often return to add her voice to the choir Christmas Eve. She participated in the Tiger Hills Music Festival for many years and won the coveted Rose Bowl in 1975. Aileen co-starred in the high school musicals of Fiddler On The Roof, My Fair Lady, and The Boyfriend. She sang at friends and family’s weddings and other celebrations. Her musical gifts will be missed.
A Celebration of Aileen’s life will be held on Saturday April 29, 2023 at 2:00 pm in the Holland United Church with Heather Grobb officiating. Family interment will take place in the Brookdale Cemetery.
If family and friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to the Holland United Church, Box 191 or the Holland Community Foundation, Box 87, Holland, MB R0G 0X0.
