Play Tribute Movie

Eileen (Abrams) Paul, 77, of Killingworth, formerly of Bethel, VT & New Haven, CT passed away Wednesday February 13, 2019 next to her husband of 55 years, Leonard Paul. Born in Brooklyn, NY December 11th, 1941. Eileen was the daughter of Francis & Beatrice Abrams, sister to Annaree Moss (Bloomington, IN) and Bud Abrams (Bear Creek, PA).

Eileen was a loving wife to Leonard, a caring Mother to her three children, Leonard (Jennifer) Elizabeth (Mick), & Brian (Nicole) and most importantly a BaBa to her seven grandchildren, Lenny, Elizabeth, Johnny, Ella, Grant, Zoe and Audra.

Aside from her family, Eileen loved the simple pleasures in life that we sometimes take for granted, finishing that last page of a book or delving into a crossword (that she always did in pen). Eileen also loved music and every visit would have James Taylor, The Eagles, or something new her brother, Buddy had sent her. Her days were not complete without a phone call from her sister Annaree, proving a thousand miles can never break the bonds of sisters.

As parents, Eileen and Len raised their children on Grafton St in a home filled with love, laughter, happiness. Here they raised their family and created a lifetime of memories. Although they have only three kids, she was called Mom by many and she always loved hearing “Hi Mrs Paul” because she knew it was a friend of her children. After retiring, Eileen and Len moved to Bethel, VT on a Property aptly named Paul’s Peak. Here she could be found out in the garden, going for a walk, reading, or making room on a shelf for yet another yard sale “treasure”. But of these, her favorite thing to do was wait at the top of the road when her children and grandchildren came to visit.

Eileen will be remembered as a woman who loved life and always entered a room with a warm smile. A Mom, Friend, Wife, and BaBa.

The family invites you to join them in a celebration of Life for Eileen on Saturday, March 9th, 2019. Swans Funeral Home in Clinton. 10am calling hours, 11am service and a reception to follow at The Holy Advent Episcopal Church in Clinton.

Our most sincere condolences to both Lenny and entire family.
We will truly miss Eileen's warm and friendly smile and wonderful personality.

Mr. Paul, lizzy,Lenny,Brian and family ,
My deepest and heartfelt sympathy goes out to you on the loss of Mrs Paul.
To this day she remains one of the most sweetest, kindest, loving and warmest people I have met in this lifetime.

I can remember the first time I saw her and Liz at the St.mary’s orientation . Her and Liz were going over the classes together deep in conversation that seemed so natural and loving . They stood out to me to notice that these people were the ones I would want to get to know . Little did I know that your family would would leave such a loving mark on my heart and memories.

Your family accepted me as one of your own. I never once felt like “just a friend of lizzy’s”. I felt like a daughter and sister every time I visited, traveled, slept over and had dinner with all of you. It was something I needed very much at that time in my life . Your home was a refuge for me and your mom was the warmth and love I treasured. You are blessed to have had her in your life .

My heart aches for all of you during this time and I’m heartbroken that I cannot be there to provide you all support and mourn with you.

All of you are very much in my thoughts, prayers and my heart .

All my love and sympathy ,
Michele Bonazzoli-Clinton

I am so sorry for the loss of Eileen. I met Eileen in 1982 my first day at Mary Wade. Eileen was always so kind and caring. Eileen had a gentle spirit and always made you feel at ease. It was so easy to be drawn to Eileen. I remember Lenny bringing Eileen broccoli rabe subs to Mary Wade and sending the sub through a window. There are a lot of memories of Eileen. Eileen was a person who you felt great full for her crossing your path in life. I will always have found memories of this great woman.
XOXO Laurene

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Your Mom was one of the most amazing, kind, genuine person I have ever met. When you knew Eileen you always felt like you were part of her extended family. Although I never had a sister I have always considered Eileen more than just a big sister. She was always there to enjoy the good times and more importantly to help me through my rough times. I always called Eileen when I got stuck on a movie or TV show trivia or question she always knew all the answers. I will always remember the silly goofy moments we shared together. I loved Eileen’s laugh and has and always will miss it. God Bless You Eileen and thank you for being a true friend and a bigger part of my life than you ever realized. Love Bud from SPUR.
