    Eileen was my youngest Step Sister and I will miss her A lot. I remember her as always smiling with not a bad word for anyone. I reconnected with her a while back and facebook and wanted to see her in person one more time.

    Eileen was a great sister! Even though she was younger than me, I often went to her for advice, and she always had time for me. She wasn’t afraid to practice her faith, and went on mission’s to poor countries as a “ Faith Nurse “ to provide care and compassion to the needy. I always envied her life!
    May your body Rest In Peace, your soul ascend into Heaven, and your spirit warm our hearts. I will miss you until I see you again. I love you! ❤️

    I never got to know Eileen very well, she was my cousin. She came to visit my mom awhile back. I got to see her and talk with her then. May you rest in peace 🙏

    It was my privilege and joy to be her team leader on five mission trips to Honduras starting in 2006. She was a blessing and lifted the spirits of everyone she met.

    Eileen was one of my best friends from the moment I moved to Virginia. She taught me how to be an expert pediatric emergency nurse. We cried together when we had life challenges and helped each other when we needed it. We did so many things together but the most fun we’re the work parties, going out, ER stories relived, and our trip across the country with my cat and a car full of stuff when I moved to Oregon. She was always kind and supportive to me. I don’t think I would have had the will to power through some very difficult times, had it not been for Eileen. I imagine her smiling and laughing on the other side with Michael. I love you, friend.
