Our Mom, Momma, protector, best friend and so much more, where do I even begin to describe her?
Mom was born in 1942 in New York. She was the daughter of a hard-working Con Edison Linesman and Irish immigrant mother. Boy did Eileen inherit those Irish shenanigan genes!!! She always had that sparkle in her eye.
In 1964, she met the love of her life, Salvatore. They were wed in 1966 and married for 54 years. As the years went by Mom had us 3 kids. And then she was blessed with her Grandchildren.
I may be biased in saying this but she was the best Mom anyone could have asked for. She was smart, funny, loving. An amazing cook, prankster, Grandma, Wife, Sister, Aunt, Daughter, friend. She was the craftiest Mom out of all the moms at school to help us in our school projects. She loved gardening and just sitting out in nature taking it all in. She also loved and spoiled her beloved pets throughout the years.
In 2017, she was diagnosed with that wretched disease, Alzheimer’s and quietly succumbed to it in 2020. She was and forever will be our heroine. We love you and miss you Momma. Always and forever. 💜
