Eileen enjoyed bridge, paper tole, knitting, sewing, gardening, sitting on the deck watching the birds and squirrels and being the family barber, but most of all she enjoyed her grandchildren and her yard, garden and flowers. She always said she had the best view in the city. Going through Mom's wishes and memories book, she stated "I wouldn't change anything. I had a good life. I was never rich but always had sufficient. I have many good friends and a wonderful family." Eileen will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by her family and friends.
