I had the rare opportunity of growing up in an extended family, with grandmother, aunt, uncle, and cousins (really another set of sibs), right across the road. Eileen was the linchpin that made it all work. She is the one who shared her children and life graciously and joyously. It could have been very different with a domineering or selfish person. She was none of that and was content to serve and love us fully. She liked to tell me that she met me before my dad – she is the one who drove to mom to the hospital when I was born. So many things remind me of what she gave me: sewing (I actually made a quilted pillow with her help); a love to cook and bake - wonderful Christmas fudge and the brown sugar icing; my first Sunday school teacher; canasta lessons; stories of Bradford; and understanding how hard it was to be the last one to leave home. I will never forget the sign in her kitchen that summarized her outlook: “Only what’s done for Christ will last.” She remains a strong influence in the fabric of our family and of who I’ve become. Eileen, I’m so grateful for you and all you gave us.

Deb and Faith in Greenville let me know about Eileen. They sent me a copy of the obituary that was in the paper. Both Eileen and Bob were such nice people. Michael was blessed to have had them as parents. She was so good about including a note in her Christmas cards. She will be missed.

Our sincere sympathy to the entire Rahm family. So sorry to read of Eileen's death. She lived a long and prosperous life. She and Bob were our neighbors when I was a child. I, of course, remember Eileen as one of our best volunteers at the Care Center.
Fondly, Carolyn and Don Waymire

I was a longtime friend of Michael's, and had met your parents a few times with him. I remember how proudly she enjoyed showing off her "Rose Garden" photos!
Mark and I are so very sorry for your loss of your Mother. It is the hardest losses we both have had. Keep your memories close to your hearts, and she will be with you always.
Praying for Peace and Strength for all of you....
