Eileen lived a full life that touched the hearts of all those around her. Her spunky personality and unwavering determination made her an inspiration to many. Eileen was a successful businesswoman who excelled in everything she put her mind to. Eileen’s greatest joy came from being a grandmother. She poured endless love into her grandchildren and took immense pride in watching them grow individuals. She proudly spoke of their accomplishments to anyone she met. In addition to being. an exceptional matriarch within her family unit, Eileen had an adventurous spirit that led her on many travels throughout her lifetime. Eileen enjoyed sp[ending much of her free time outside, and one of her favorite hobbies was gardening, where her green thumb could seemingly encourage even the. daintiest of plants to grow. She also enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, whether shopping or going on short adventures. Eileen is survived by her husband, Bernard; daughter, Christina; son, Brian; grandchildren Madison, Berkeley, Harry; great-grandchild, Brooks; ands brother, William (Anne). The loss of Eileen leaves behind an irreplaceable void that can never truly be filled again. We take comfort in knowing that she lives on through the legacy she left behind and the memories we hold close to our hearts.
