In addition to her parents, Eileen was predeceased by brothers, Allen, Gene, Claude, James, Bliss, and Hal; sisters, Marie, Paulette, Maise Fairley, and Donna Hawes; nieces, Sherry, and Kim; nephew, Wally.

McAdam’s Memorial Chapel at 11:00am with a burial to follow in the McGivney Community Cemetery.
