She will live on in our memories as a caring, supportive, social, vivacious, and fun-loving woman who loved her family.

Eileen cherished her family photographs and every opportunity she had to spend quality time with her loved ones. Her family would gather together every Christmas whether at her home or the Trainors, and later her son, Frank and daughter-in-law, Carol would take up this beautiful tradition. On the other years, the She would regularly keep in touch with relatives and friends over the telephone to show her love. This gave her the chance to hear the updates in other’s lives and tell about how everything was going for her and her family.

In her work as an administrative assistant, she was well respected for her work ethic. However, when not diligently at work she loved to travel. Taking cruises and visiting foreign countries was one of Eileen’s favorite things to do. She loved to explore places she had not yet been to, and came to especially enjoy trips to Europe, Florida, and any port of call her cruise ship would visit.

Perhaps, even most important, Eileen stayed close to the Lord and His Blessed Mother by praying the rosary every day and receiving Holy Communion as frequently as possible. Her relationship with the Lord manifested itself in her warm and social nature. She loved being around others, attending parties, and dancing whenever she could. Eileen will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends.

    Thank you, I loved her so much. We were friends for many, many years. We went through terrible sorrows but also many joys, lots of laughter. We were sounding boards for each other, helpmates, friends, babysitters, so many facets. I like to think we grew together. Our children grew up together. My three will always remember Mrs, SMITH IS, as my daughter called her. My granddaughter called he ‘ Eileen’ and couldn’t understand why her dad called her ‘Mrs. Smith’. We have so many memories. I will miss her more than you can imagine, my dear dear friend.

    To “Grandma Eileen” as I would refer to her to the younger crowd, you will be missed dearly. A great sense of humor, always had a laugh with her. To Frank, Carol, Chrissy, Michael and Geoff also Bobby, my sincerest sympathy. Hugs and prayers to you all.

    I met Eileen when she moved to Park Place in Hendersonville. She would attend the Sunday afternoon Communion Service with the Legion of Mary from Our Lady of the Lake Catholic church. She was such a lively, vivacious, cheerful woman, never complaining, always smiling. We all looked forward to seeing her and having a good laugh together. Her thoughts were always of her family and she spoke lovingly of her sons, her husband and her own father, whom she loved very much.
    What a joy to watch the video tribute and catch a brief glimpse of her full life and beautiful family. The photographs made me laugh and smile and cry a little bit. I will miss her very much.
