If you knew Eileen, you knew a Saint. She was one of the kindest and most genuine people you would have ever met. She always had a smile on her face and was happy to help anybody. You could always find her on Saturdays at the 5:30 mass at St. Gregory’s in the second pew.
She grew up in the Bronx and moved to Queens after she and her husband Richard got married. Later the happy couple and their 4 children moved to Stony Point. On October 17th of this year, Eileen and Richard would have celebrated 51 years of marriage. She was an Avid Yankees fan and loved her music. Sadly, Eileen was called back to Heaven.
She is predeceased by her son, Michael (1971-2019). She is survived by her Husband, Richard, Children, Denise (Todd) Daniel (Marcy), Matthew (Josie) and her beautiful grandchildren, Madison, Luke, Jake, Emily and Anneylse.
