Two of Eileen's favorite pastimes were the beach and gardening. She had a beach house she loved and lost in Hurricane Ike, on Atkins Road, on the Bolivar Peninsula. Eileen had an amazing green thumb and was always busy with her plants and flowers. She was an extraordinary aunt and spent many summers at the beach entertaining nieces and nephews.

May she rest in peace.
