I looked forward to every Easter Saturday when Eileen and I would get together for a visit We became very close through those chats and I will miss that tremendously. She was such a wonderful, kind and caring person and so very devoted to her family and especially her grandsons. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family as I know how very much she will be missed. Rest in Peace Eileen.
I was very saddened to hear about Eileen's passing. I know that she was so loved, as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and so much more; and that she will be missed deeply. She had such a warmth about her and it will continue to be reflected in this world through her children and her sweet grandsons. She will remain forever in your hearts as she looks down on you from her place of peace in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
Ohhh, I have so many memories of Mrs B growing up, it’s hard to choose one. I remember her at school helping out on hot dog day. I remember seeing her going to work in her nurse’s uniform with the perfectly starched white hat and feeling so happy for the people who were lucky enough to be in her smiling and capable care. Most of all I remember the times she and Mr B would come over at night for dinner with my parents and a few of the other neighbors. She always looked so beautiful and had that lovely smile and kind words for me when she arrived. They seemed like a perfect couple to me as a child, and I see as an adult how true it was. Eileen and Joe, I know your mom’s kindness and glow will stay alive in you forever. Mr B, I can’t imagine the heartbreak you must be feeling, but I hope the joy and glow of Mrs B that you see in your children and beautiful grandsons will remind you every day of the unusual and remarkable love you shared for the many years you were together. I wish you strength during this difficult time, and send you all my love. XO

Eileen was one of the kindest, most caring women I know. She was so thoughtful when my dad was sick - always praying for him & sending kind words. I was lucky to be able to call her my aunt. She will be missed deeply.
