    She’ll be missed, she was such a sweet, loving, carry lady (whom I really enjoyed when she was my neighbor on W 14 Avenue). Prayers for Eileen’s family.

    Eileen and I were reading partners at Central elementary school. Every Thursday morning her and I would go to Central and have third graders read to us. It was a program to help kids learn how to read and we enjoyed having the children read to us. We also enjoyed playing the roll of a surrogate grandparent. Eileen was a very thoughtful and caring person. She will be missed.

    I have the most wonderful memories of my beautiful sister. I always loved hearing her sing. Even as a little girl her sweet voice filled my heart with joy. At funerals her message in song was a comfort to those mourning the loss of a loved one. I loved her dearly and admired her motherly ways. She is now with her Lord and Savior and singing with the angles. All my love to her family. Eleanor
