All of us at Peartree will miss Ms. Eileen (mama) so much. Her sweet smile and feisty attitude at times is what we will miss the most. She was such a joy to have and talk to. We love all her children and friends that we got to know during her time spent with us.
You all are in our prayers.
Love always,

Dear Susan, Barbara, Peggy & Patty,

I am so very sorry about your mother's passing. Regardless of age or circumstance, it is always devastating to lose a parent. I have many fond memories of your mother and father from our days at Assumption.

Please know that all of you and your families will be in my thoughts and prayers in the difficult days ahead.

Love, Kathy (Ona) O'Neill

We were saddened to learn of Eileen's passing. We just learned of this yesterday and would like to express our deepest sympathy to all of her family. Ironically we were in MD on the 26th of February and if we had only known we would have stopped by the funeral home to visit Eileen and see the family. Eileen was a family friend to us as well as all our children. Bud and Eileen attended many events in the lives of our children, including graduations, showers and weddings as well as family gatherings at the annual summer get togethers. We recently sent her cards for her 90th birthday in January and we had kidded with her that she had to stick around to see that important birthday. We will miss her spunkiness and the great conversations we had over the years on the phone and during the many visits to Sedge Court. A great lady we will miss you.
We will continue to keep you and yours in our thoughts and prayers.
