Eileen Marie Masseau born September 7, 1950 to Lyle and Marguerite Sherman, passed away January 13, 2021 at the age of 70 surrounded by her husband, children and grandchildren. A graduate of Lansing Eastern High School (class of 1968), she loved spending time with her family and spontaneous adventures with her family. During her younger years, she loved to water ski, play the piano and spend time her with siblings at their parents' cottages up north. Eileen married Thomas Michael Masseau, Sr. on September 14, 1968 and they celebrated 52 years of marriage.

Prior to working, Eileen’s focus was on raising her family as a stay at home mom. Later in life she worked at Check Reporting Service and then Dart Corporation. Eileen left Dart to spend time with her grandchildren and great-children. Throughout their marriage, she stressed the importance of family and togetherness. Many memories were made as the family came together to celebrate birthdays and holidays. She loved to spend time up north at their trailer with family boating, tubing, riding her quad and sitting on the deck listening to the birds. Eileen loved doing crosswords and cross stitching. Eileen was active in all her kids' activities and later with her grandchildren. She was selfless with her time and would travel to see her grandchildren in all their activities. She and Tom would also travel to Arkansas to spend time with her son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren for their activities. Once she was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, she did not let the diagnosis stop her. She tirelessly fought through the pain to spend quality time with her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The family will always cherish the memories and gifts she provided to all of us over the years.

She leaves to cherish her memory her husband, Thomas M. Masseau, Sr of Lansing, her four children Angie Masseau of Lansing, Tom (Penny) Masseau of Maumelle, Arkansas, Sarah Brabant of Grand Ledge and Brenda Masseau of Lansing; her seven grandchildren Tommy, Nate and Sam Masseau of Maumelle Arkansas, Paxton and Payton Brabant of Grand Ledge and LaRissa (Marley) Rodgers and Briana Masseau of Lansing; her two great-grandchildren Ariella Gallegos and Vincent Masseau; her sisters, brother, and many nieces and nephews.

What can I say about the best Aunt anyone could ask for. From the many late night phone conversations asking for advice. To the multiple spring breaks and summer weeks spent with the Masseau family. I will never forget her laugh the smile and the special way she spoke to me in her angelic tone. Without a doubt I was her favorite nephew snd she my favorite aunt. I will cherish the memories for a life time. In closing one final good bye to my beloved aunt C’mon Eileen
