My memories of Aileen were of a warm, funny, caring, strong woman and a wonderful mother.
Growing up in the neighborhood, and close friends with her children, she always made me feel welcomed in her home.
Our world would be a better place, if we lived the life ,Aileen demonstrated to others. She made the world a better place.
Thank you sweet lady.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Aileen. I have known her for a long time, being the loving wife of my best friend of late, Harry (Buddy) Newton, Jr. These two had a happy and Godly marriage and were always happy to see me. Words cannot express the love and respect that I had for them.

I am glad that Aileen passed peacefully to heaven to be reunited
with her loving husband. May the peace of God be upon the family left behind and her precious memories be preserved for eternity.
Rest in peace, sweet Aileen.
