Eileen was a fun aunt.

  • Eileen was beautiful inside and out. She always had a loving smile and always had a quiet disposition. I loved her spunkiness and encouragements. She loved her dolls! I am so happy I am a recipient of some of these lovely ‘friends’ of hers. She is in a far better place and reunited with husband, son, and parents. We will miss her very much.

  • Prayers up for the whole family and all who knew her. She was a joy and an inspiration all the days of her life and we count ourselves blessed to have known her
