Eileen was the most beautiful soul. She was a mother to me, was always there when I needed her, and taught me all of life’s lessons. She got me through all stages of life from preschool fingerpainting to navigating adulthood. She always treated each day as her last with the brightest of smiles and the warmest of hugs. I hope to carry her strength throughout the rest of my life. My heart is broken and I’m not sure if it will ever mend, but I am one of the luckiest people to have had her in my life. She helped mold me into who I am today, and I can never repay her for the kindness, compassion, and love that she gave to me and my family. I just wish I could give her one last hug and goodbye. Praying that she’s in peace and smiling down on us all. Love you Eileen, forever and always <3 Julie

Chris, Chuck and Cara,
When I think of your Mom, I always think of your Dad as well. I remember all the fun we had when we came to your house, or you came to ours. Your parents were our parents. Your Mom treated us so well. She will be missed. She was a fantastic lady.

I know you are shining down upon us from heaven right now. We will miss you dearly, but your kind and loving spirit will live within us forever. I’m so grateful for all of the life lessons you taught us along the way. The last time we spoke, I remember asking you how in the world you were able to do it all: raise and take care of your own family plus help raise and take care of ours. You smiled and said, “I just did.” I never once heard you complain, and you always had such simple yet profound wisdom to share over a cup of coffee (even though you had to reheat yours about 5 times). You spent your life selflessly taking care of everyone else, and now is your time for God to take care of you with endless blessings, as you spend eternity with Him.

I’ll always remember playing wizard, euchre and cards with g-ma. Our lively conversation about life, politics. Her great sense of humor and wit. I’m disappointed that you never got to meet your great grandson, but promise to do everything in my power to make sure that he brings honor to the Wentlender name. I know you would have loved him and will be looking down at Kyle and our whole family. I love and will miss you dearly.
