Eileen was an incredible woman. She was first and foremost our faith warrior. Leading the charge with wisdom of the years as her arrows. She was a woman of prayer. If she told you she was praying, she was praying! Her time learning about the Lord whether in Bible study or quietly at home was something she treasured and was at the very core of who she was. She absolutely loved sharing her faith with others.

She was a Mom and she loved that title. She loved her children with reckless abandon. She was always there to lend an ear, to talk, to comfort, to infuse wisdom or to help you to contemplate. She was so loving, but with a fire that could bring you back to the line.

Her wit and humor were priceless! It was infused in the day to day. She used that wit and humor to power through tough situations…..who laughs at the face of cancer?...Eileen does!! We count it a privilege that you make up our life story. The spot you leave can never be filled. We will miss you Mom!! Enjoy the beauty of Heaven!!
