What a beautiful lady! She was a delight, a gentle woman and great mother and grandmother! Eileen was a good friend, always there to listen and give her two cents! What a dazzling smile and cute laugh! My prayer is that we live as she did, with grace, dignity and love in our hearts. Truth and justice. I'm sure Eileen is singing her Irish tunes and dancing with Jesus in Heaven! Love, Peace, Joy! Mike and Rose Cerabone, with Tony, Joe and Terri and Andy ❤️🌹🌈

Sending heartfelt condolences to Eileens family with prayers for comfort during this most difficult time. I will always remember the smile Eileen had for everyone at work in ICU and how hard she worked to bring comfort to her patients. Eileen made our world a better place. Her smile always became brighter when she spoke of her Sons. She will be remembered fondly. God speed you Eileen. Rest In Peace.

So sorry for your loss Barry family, I met Eileen at LakeShore Hospital i worked at registration and Eileen walked from med-surg to ask me to change a patients room. She was so polite, calm, and respectful when i was done she said thank you for doing this for me with a big bright smile ! At that moment i know i had a friend . Eileen worked with my kids in ER they loved her later my daughter worked with her at a group home , she took My daughter under her wing. Eileen always said i have wonderful children.

I first met Eileen while waiting on the Lakeshore High tennis courts for my partner to arrive ! She was volleying with her son , Daniel ! Eileen came over to me and asked if I would like to volley with Daniel ! I said yes! Strangely that was the only time I played with Daniel for about a year ! In fact I had forgotten that encounter ! Daniel began his schooling at Canisius High and one day asked his guidance counselor if he knew anyone who would regularly hit the tennis ball with him! His guidance counselor, my friend Dave , mentioned me! Thus began our friendship and my subsequent meetings with Eileen !
I truly enjoyed driving out to Angola to play tennis ! Most of all ,I enjoyed the gracious hospitality I received from Eileen!
After reading her obituary life story, I can now see how this generous and gracious welcoming spirit was nurtured within her and shared throughout her life in so many self- sacrificing ways with so many people !
St. Matthew's words from the mouth of Jesus in Chpt. 25 at the last judgement certainly apply to Eileen , " When I was hungry..... When I was thirsty... etc you did it to me !" "Come now good and faithful servant, enter into the Joy of your Lord " ! Shalom ! Fr.Pat Ipolito 😊

I met Eileen years ago when we both worked at Millard Fillmore Hospital. We became moms at the same time. Although we lost touch over the years, I will always remember her as one of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful woman I ever met. I am so sorry for your loss and that this beautiful woman suffered. You are all in my prayers.

Eileen was the RN assigned to the group home where I and many coworkers who became friends and, eventually, family worked. We knew Eileen would fit in well when she got through a med pour with me. :) We stayed in touch after she left the state and she loved hearing about my son, Bradley. I know how much she loved her sons and her grandchildren. She'll be missed by many. I'm a better person for having known her.

My sincere condolences to Eileen's family for their loss. I knew Eileen first as a baseball Mom, and later on as Mrs. Barry, or Mrs. B. Our boys have been friends for years. Without a doubt my son will miss his conversations with Mrs. B.

I personally admire Eileen for her strength. She fought a long hard battle in the last few years with dignity and grace.

Warmly,
Karen Reinard
