My Aunt Eileen was such a gracious and dignified lady, and she touched so many lives during her 102 years. Her strength of character and independent spirit were wonderful qualities. As kids, we loved going to Uncle Bill and Aunt Eileen's house when we visited from Chicago. Despite the commotion of a houseful of energetic cousins, she remained calm and unruffled, and I never heard her raise her voice, although I'm sure we deserved a scolding or two. She encouraged our cousin Paul's interests and hobbies, which we found quite fascinating, and a visit to Raytown always resulted in a fun-filled time. For as long as I can remember, Aunt Eileen sent me a card for every birthday, and I'll never forget her thoughtfulness. I will miss this lovely lady!
