As everyone else before me has posted, Eileen was full of life and laughter. Thinking of her now makes me smile. I remember so many funny stories, and wish there was time to create more. Rest in peace, Eileen.

Eileen was a great neighbor and friend. I grew up across the street from her in my grandparents the MCconville home. Eileen was a great neighbor and was like family to me. She will always be remembered as the one person that was great to have as my families best friend. Eileen could always make you laugh no matter what and was a great person to be around. You will always be in my heart, love you Eileen.

Eileen my friend, who knew Brandons, and then onto Vinny O's, softball team would be the start of an amazing friendship. We have laughed, cried, teased and laughed some more. You are a warm hearted, generous soul who will be missed. Love you always. -Ellen

Whenever Eileen was around, you were bound to hear laughter. She is a big part of some of my fondest memories at EHMC....softball games, Vinny O's, ski trips, canoe trips and gatherings. We will miss her laugh, her stories and her warmth. God bless you Eileen and our thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

Still don't want to believe it's true. Words cannot explain how much I love you and how much I will miss you. I just hope you know how loved you are Aunt I! You will never be far from my heart and you will live on in my thoughts. Rest well Aunt I!
