Eileen Ann Falkenthal
Resident of Santa Rosa
Eileen Ann Falkenthal passed away peacefully on May 17, 2014 surrounded by her family, her second family of incredible caregivers at Mirabel Lodge, and the angels of Memorial / St. Joseph Hospice.
Eileen was born to Dr. James and Mary Magill on March 15, 1922 in Vallejo, CA. She graduated from St. Vincent's High School in 1939 along with the man who would later become her husband, George Falkenthal. After High School, both went off to college, Eileen to San Jose State, George to Santa Clara. Upon graduation, Eileen returned to Vallejo to teach grammar school, George to the U.S. Navy in the Pacific Fleet as World War II was in full swing.
After returning from the war, George and Eileen reactivated their interrupted courtship, and married in 1948. Settling in Palo Alto, George and Eileen raised a family of four children; Ann (Ron), Robert (Jeanette), Raymond (Dianne) and Greg (Tracy). Eileen was very active in the lives of each of her children and took great pride in any achievement. She was very active in her community as well as their church, Our Lady of the Rosary Parish. Nothing however, brought her more joy than her grandchildren, and in recent years, her great grandchildren.
Eileen was the last of her generation, preceded by George; her brother, Carson; sister, Carolyn, and truly signals the end of a family era. Eileen leaves a lasting legacy in her children, 5 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. Mostly however, she leaves the unmistakable signature of a lady's elegance, and the love and charm of a wonderful mother her family will cherish forever.
Services will be private, and any donation which supports Memorial Hospice is greatly appreciated.
