FLAMAN - Eileen Flaman passed away peacefully on February 5, 2020 at Lakeside Manor Care Home, Saltcoats, Saskatchewan. Eileen was born on June 14, 1931 to Alex and Christina Poechman on the family farm near Hanover, Ontario. She was one of 9 children. Growing up Eileen, along with her siblings were very close as they worked and played hard together. School was about a mile away and Eileen spoke of the horse and sleigh rides to school with the deep snow in the winter. They made maple syrup, had a large strawberry and cucumber patch as well as regular farming chores. Growing up, Saturday nights were the Poechman happiest times, playing cards and sitting around the radio listening to CKNX Barn Dance! Sunday mornings the family all piled into the car to go to church. As the children grew older, some left the farm to seek employment and Eileen was one of them. Eileen first moved to Walkerton to work in a furniture factory until her good friend convinced her to take the challenge and move all the way to Winnipeg, Manitoba where she worked at a sewing job. Deciding to go back to school, Eileen applied for and was accepted into hairdressing. This eventually led Eileen to Regina where she worked at a salon and very much enjoyed it, as well as the good money she made! It was in Regina that Eileen met the love of her life Robert Flaman. They were married on October 8, 1960 back in Hanover, Ontario. Robert and Eileen eventually moved to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan where Robert was employed by the PFRA. Eileen became a very busy stay at home mom, raising 6 young children. Robert grew tired of being away from his clan, and in 1974, decided to pack up his family and move to Jedburgh, Saskatchewan where they started a successful farming operation. Together they dairy, beef and grain farmed while raising the young family together. They often laughed when talking about how having 6 children sure helped with the chores! Besides farming, Eileen maintained many interests. She loved her garden, or any outdoor activity for that matter, cooking and baking (her famous scuffles!), The Jedburgh Good Deeds Club, bowling and curling. Eileen remained devoted to her faith at St. Gerard's Parish in Yorkton, being an active member in the Catholic Women's League. Eileen loved her family. Playing cards, and especially cribbage was a must if you wanted to be a Flaman family or friend. After evening chores, and a big Eileen supper, family and friends were always expected to stick around and have a game or two of crib. The love of this family game has since rubbed off on her grown grandchildren, as they too, have become very proficient in the game! One by one the 7 grandchildren came along and how "grandma Lene" loved to have them visit and spend time with her. Robert and Eileen remained on the farm until 2006 when they finally retired to Independent Manor, Yorkton, Sask. Sadly Robert passed away only a few months after moving in. Eileen remained in Yorkton until declining health necessitated her move to Lakeside Manor, where she remained there until her passing. Also predeceased by her parents and numerous family members. She is survived by her son Mark (Janice), and their children Katherine (James) Bulmer, Christian and Stephanie; Brenda (Dennis) Enright; Sandra (Curt) England; Dan; Kirk (Tonia) and their children Alex and Zoe; and Judy (Stan) Purcell and their children Steven and Erin. Prayers were held on Monday, Feb. 10th 2020 from St. Gerard's Roman Catholic Church in Yorkton with Mary Bybliw officiating. Lay-reader was Dan Flaman, eulogists were Mark Flaman & Brenda Enright. Granddaughter Katherine Bulmer led members of the Parish Choir and the congregation in the singing of the hymns 'You Are Near', Psalm 25, and 'Precious Lord, Take My Hand'. The Funeral Mass was celebrated on Tuesday, Feb. 11th from St. Gerard's Church with Fr. Louis Kim Nguyen as Celebrant. Altarservers were Christian & Stephanie Flaman, crossbearer was Steven Purcell, lay-readers were Zoe Flaman & Curt England. Hymns were 'Morning Has Broken', Psalm 62, 'Hail Mary, Gentle Woman', 'I Am the Bread of Life', 'Song of the Angels', and 'Though the Mountains May Fall'. Members of St. Gerard's CWL formed an Honour Guard. The interment took place in the Yorkton Memorial Gardens with Mark, Dan & Kirk Flaman, Brenda Enright, Sandra England and Judy Purcell serving as the casketbearers. Condolences can be left at

Sympathies to the family of Eileen and Robert. We met years ago on their dairy farm
as friends of Chris Flaman, playing a joke on them, pretending to be there to buy a bull.
Some of you kids will probably remember the laughs that followed. Wonderful people and a great loss - always a welcome smile and, of course, food.
Cherish memories of good times in their lives.
Deanna & Dwayne Radmacher, Edenwold, Sask.
