We were so surprised and saddened to hear of Eileen’s passing. To us, she brings so many wonderful memories involving music and church. I always admired her wonderful musical gifts especially as an accompanist. That is much more difficult than many think. Eileen always brought her lovely smile and her quiet good nature every time we saw her. She will be missed
You are in our prayers
