Eileen was born on March 28, 1925 to Elmer and Fern Pliett in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Following high school she worked as a book keeper for a construction company. She was united in marriage to Theodore “Ted” Lantz after he returned home from World War II; he preceded her in death in 2007. Eileen loved caring for her family, attending her children’s sporting and school events were a must for her. Next to her family, Eileen’s rose garden was her pride and joy. After Ted’s retirement, Eileen went to work at Beaver’s East Restaurant in Bettendorf for a short time. Eileen and Ted loved to travel across the United States both on their own and with their children’s school trips. She was a coach for the Dad’s Club Baseball and could always be seen with a clip board, whistle, and a hat. Eileen was also a member at St. Paul Lutheran Church.
