Eileen Joan Reges, 79 of Hopatcong, NJ passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 after a courageous battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Eileen was the youngest of eight children born to Irish immigrants, Kathleen and Edward Venables of Ozone Park, NY. She married John Reges in 1962 and went on to have four wonderful children. She worked as a secretary at many firms and spent the last few years of her professional life lighting up the lives of college students at Fairleigh Dickinson University as a meeting planner. Eileen was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her smile. She was a kind neighbor who was always willing to lend a hand and she had a servant’s heart that reached out to all of her friends and family in need. Eileen truly brought the love of Jesus to the world by being a strong example of faith and charity. She was a loving mother who worried for the well-being of all of her children and grandchildren and lifted them up in prayer daily. Eileen is survived by her beloved husband, John Mark Reges and children, Mary Margaret Molnar, Joseph John Reges, Eileen Pinsonault, and Kathleen Reges. Eileen is also survived by her sixteen grandchildren and by three siblings Kathleen Volpe of California, Joseph Venables of New Jersey and John Venables of Florida and many cherished nieces and nephews.

Eileen made us felt at home instantly. Fernando and I met her at her house and she welcomed us immediately as family. She had great stories about her granddaughters and proudly told us about their travels. It was easy to love her instantly. My heartfelt condolences for the Reges family.
