We lived next door to Eileen for many years. My mom, Gena, enjoyed her company. We spent many an evening playing cards. My husband,Z, especially enjoyed when Eileen cooked dinner for us. He loved her Yorkshire pudding popovers!!!! She was part of many family celebrations. She will be missed. Sending all our love to Bob and Dave and their families and Scott,too.
