Eileen Patricia Cole Link Obituary
Eileen Patricia Cole Link passed away August 22, 2018 at her home in San Marino after having been surrounded by family over her final days. Eileen was born on February 16, 1920 at home in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York to Helen Agnes Brennan Cole and Chester David Cole. She went to St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn where she majored in History. After graduation from college, she attended and completed the prestigious Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School in Manhattan. She married Alvin K. Link on April 15, 1944. Eileen's favorite interests and activities over the course of her life were ice skating, skiing, listening and dancing to big band music, reading, letter writing, attending church at Saints Felicitas and Perpetua Catholic Church, involvement with the San Marino Women's Club, enjoying a good party, enjoying anything sweet and watching the life events of her children and grandchildren. As a stay at home mother, she would say her job consisted of being a chauffeur, cook, scheduler, healer, and supporter. She was a loyal fan of all of her children and grandchildren putting their needs ahead of hers. She was predeceased by her husband Alvin Kenneth Link in 2010. She is survived by her four children Diane Barbara Link of Alhambra, Susan Link (J. Michael) Flanagan of San Marino, Kenneth Robert Link of San Marino, and Richard Allen (Katherine Lyon) Link of Altadena; four grandchildren Ashley Flanagan (Matthew) Slaughter, Ryan Riley (Meghan McGraw) Flanagan, Jonathan Richard (Gina Gipson) Link, and David Christian Link; and four great grandchildren Andrew Slaughter, William Slaughter, Elizabeth Link and Madison Link.
