Your Mom was a wonderful lady, and will be missed! She always had a smile, and a positive word. She loved her family, and was so proud of her sons and Grandchildren. She was so warm hearted! I will personally miss her, she was a good friend! She always spoke so fondly of Harold, I know she’s with him now.

It seems like just yesterday that we were kids coming down to see Grandma and Aunt Ruby, your Grandma. We would stop at the farm and see your Mom and Dad and you guys. In my mind and heart it was only yesterday but in fact that was almost a half a century ago. The last time I stopped you boys were outside of the barn and I stopped. I said you probably didn’t remember me, but you did. So did your Mom. I sat and talked with her and had lunch with her and Richard. I am so sorry for your loss. She has now returned home and is with your Dad once more.
Your cousin, Ada

To all my relatives we will miss Aunt Eileen and her generosity. She loved everybody and was a wonderful Aunt. It takes awhile to get over grief but it does subside. We all have beautiful memories of our times together. May she rest in God’s love and peace.

Dear Diane, Mark , Amanda, Kevin and the rest of the family,
The last memory I have of Eileen is seeing her last Tuesday @ kinney’s. Diane, you have been a stronghold for so many in your family, don’t ever forget that. Many condolences to you all, especially Mark; a mother will be missed always.
Much love to you all,

Eileen was a lovely lady. She will certainly be missed at the Omar Methodist Church. She was very committed to her duties as “Sunshine Lady” for the church, and she always did a wonderful job with the cards because she did it with love.
Our prayers go out to her family,
