Over the years Palmer and Eileen lived at several places in the Lake Alma area until they moved to Weyburn in 1997. Eileen's love for Palmer showed in the love and care she gave him over the years.
In 1953, they moved to Rock Glen, Sask. Here, Eileen was an assistant cook for a road construction crew where Palmer was employed.

In 1997, Palmer and Eileen moved to Weyburn, Sask. The last several years they lived at Bison Manor. Until recently Eileen faithfully took charge of serving coffee in the afternoon in the common room. Eileen especially enjoyed the friendships made with other residents.
