Eileen led a strong, full life, and she will be missed by many. With the help of her late husband, Calvin, she raised four children, who now lead successful lives. Her 12 grandchildren are beginning to do the same as teenagers and young adults. Eileen would beam with pride whenever she spoke of her family, no matter who she was talking to. She knew what was important in life, and she will be remembered for her strength, her compassion, her wisdom, and her loving, cheerful personality. She could always be found doing something, whether it was a puzzle, gardening, cooking, or volunteering her time in service to others. Through her own life, she was able to show her family what it meant to work hard, and be happy. She is loved dearly, and will be missed by many. Born to Eternal Life on November 10, 2013. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more. Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4
