Eileen P. Antell, age 91, of Marlboro; formerly of West Roxbury, Cape Cod, and Maine, passed suddenly on September 30, 2013. She was the wife of the late Patrick J. Antell for 42 years. Eileen was the mother of Michael Antell of Gloucester, Susan Antell of Marlboro, and the late Lisa Antell. She also leaves two grandchildren: Heather Antell and Shaun Antell.

Eileen emigrated from Tipperary, Ireland when she was four years old along with her father and sister; her mother had passed away in Ireland. After schooling in a boarding school in her younger days and at St. Joseph’s High School in Roxbury, MA, Eileen held several jobs in the secretarial area. Once she married she became a very devoted wife and loving mother to her three children. Not having a mother figure of her own she supported her children and lived her life through them, all the while taking on part-time jobs to make sure their needs were met.

Eileen was an avid reader, movie buff, and sports fan. She had an interest in everything that was going on around her in life.

My folks, Tom & Betty Higginbottom, and especially, Betty, dearly miss Eileen. Eileen & Betty enjoyed so many great times & memories together, and got together so often to go shopping (Christmas Tree Shops & so many other places) and have lunch at many different restaurants on the Cape.

Betty & Tom will always miss Eileen, and I will too. She was a great neighbor, but better than that, an amazing, wonderful friend. Eileen was a real sweet lady, and a dear friend.

Eileen was a woman of many talents. I'll always remember Mrs. Antell's Italian Dinners, and more specifically, her delicious Spaghetti Dinners. Eileen was an amazing Chef/Cook. She made the tastiest & most delicious marinara/tomato sauce, the best I've ever had anywhere in my life. We'll all miss her dearly.

Susan & Michael, I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom & Lisa's passing and your loss. My sympathies and condolences go out to you both. This is such a huge loss. Your Mom and Lisa were the kindest, sweetest ladies. I'll always have really great memories of both Eileen & Lisa. Lisa always had a kind, uplifting word for me in difficult times. I remember going to Disneyworld with them around 1977 or '78, we had such a great time. I hope your memories of good times bring you comfort at this difficult time. There are two angels in heaven now.

My folks, Betty & Tom Higginbottom also pass on deepest sympathies & condolences. We'll miss Eileen & Lisa in so many ways.

To my cousins Susan and Michael and to their families - Karen and I extend our deepest sympathies to you at the loss of Aunt Eileen and cousin Lisa - it is one thing to suffer the loss of an older person - quite another to learn of Lisa's passing - when Michael told me that both had passed on the same day I immediately thought in some stupid way that because Lisa was so close to her mother - I saw a blessing in God's decision to call her to accompany her mother home - God's ways are not our ways - his will will be done - as difficult as it is we must accept that - I will remember them always with fondness and will always remember them in my prayers - may God's peace be with you
