Eileen was a loving and caring woman to all who knew her and greeted everyone with a smile

passion for quilting and knitting and not to mention her famous raisin buns that were savored by
everyone lucky enough to taste one. Family was extremely important to her and she never missed
a birthday or anniversary with a card and phone call.
