Rejoice in celebration of a beautiful and blessed life, well lived. Eileen Marie Holcomb passed away peacefully on January 30, 2019 at the age of eighty-seven.

Born in Stamford, Connecticut and long-time resident of Marvin Beach, in Norwalk Connecticut, Eileen was above all a loving and caring wife, mother and grandmother. She worked as a legal secretary and assistant to the principal of West Rocks Middle School for more than twenty years.

Eileen is pre-deceased by her loving husband of forty-nine years, Benjamin “Ben-O” Holcomb. She is survived by her children Glenn and Amy Holcomb, Robert and Mona Holcomb, Douglas and Dialtha Holcomb and Elizabeth and Walter Forger and her many beloved grand children; Casey, Katherine, Sean, James, Alison, Benjamin, Ryan, Lauren and Sarah. She passed surrounded by those who loved her and recollecting a beautiful and blessed life. While the impression she left on those she touched will forever be a part of us, she will be sadly missed.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, February 8 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Stephen Church, 6948 Main Street, Trumbull. Burial will take place at Resurrection Cemetery, 208 S. Main Street, Newtown. Relatives and friends may greet the family on Thursday, February 7 from 4-8 p.m. at the Spadaccino and Leo P.
