Eileen occasionally enjoyed Johnny Walker Black, an extra dry martini, or a Bailey’s with coffee. She was fastidious about her grooming, from head to toes. She believed the higher the hair, the closer she was to God. Her hobbies and interests included interior design, decorating, playing Euchre, and reading. She took great pride in keeping a warm and welcoming home for family and friends.

She was a very kind and loving woman, who fostered a series of cats and dogs. She loved her family and was an avid fan who cheered her children on with their basketball, softball, and volleyball matches. Nothing stopped her from being the fiercest protector and biggest advocate of her family.

Eileen was a communicant of St. Edward the Confessor Church in Clifton Park
