Eileen Rapp, 95, of Palm Beach Gardens, Passed away on Sunday, October 27th.

Eileen was born in Detroit, Michigan, on September 7, 1924. She was married to the love of her life, Edward Rapp during World War II. They got married on a military base in Biloxi, Mississippi, and honeymooned in New Orleans. They were separated when Ed was sent to the Pacific. Eileen gave birth to their first child Mike when Ed was still overseas. Eight more children quickly followed while they resided together in Detroit, and later, Fort Lauderdale. They were married for 50 Years.

Eileen loved being a Catholic Christian. She loved the Church, and she loved her children. Her Children brought a smile to her face and made her laugh. All of her nine children love to laugh and make each other laugh. That is her legacy.

She is survived by her children; Michael Rapp (Rita), Stephen Rapp (Diane), Joan Hurst, Christine Bernstein (Jack), James Rapp (Kathy), Mary Mohl (Allen), John Rapp (Candyce), Thomas Rapp, and Julie Gillenwaters (William), 22 grandchildren, and 23 great-grandchildren.

Aunt Eileen was amazing and I always enjoyed spending time with her. She was so warm, full of life, feisty, and wise. I admired her and will miss her. I know her light will continue to shine.

She was such a special lady and I am so glad to be part of her extended family. My husband, David, loved his Aunt Eileen and Uncle Ed and drop by whenever he could when he was in Florida. She was our favorite visitor when we moved to Honolulu.
Our kids will be saddened by the news, especially Jane who visited when she was down visiting her in-laws each Christmas.
One of the last times I saw her Davie and I stayed with her and she came into the room and said I hope you don't mind sharing the room with Ed-then showed us his ashes on the closest shelf-she laughed then and said-I know he won't mind. Such a Lady-loved her.

My condolences on the loss of your mother. My parents lived in the same facility with Eileen. She was a sweet, soft spoken woman. She will be missed.
