  1. Eileen was a true inspiration, one of the coolest people I have ever met. I feel fortunate to have known her and shared many good times with her. We used to go to Katz deli a lot the last few years. We shared many trips with my family in the 60 ‘s and 70’s. Eileen saved all my childhood artwork I used to make for her and then when I was in my late 20’s, gave it to me in a folder. She was a class act with a wonderful sense of humor. Fly on my Angel. Love, Cinzia.

  2. To the Family and Friends of Eileen,

    Sincere condolences on Eileen’s passing. She was a very warm and welcoming person. When Stan and I first lived in Westville, CT, we knew Eileen through the bank she worked for and her dear friend, Ruth. We loved to send her our Christmas photo, and she loved receiving it, always writing kind words in her holiday card to us. Eileen was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed by family and friends. She was a very knowledgeable, kind, and caring lady. We always enjoyed her. We are so very sorry we cannot attend her memorial service. We will keep her in our thoughts and prayers.
