Eileen worked for the Folsom Cordova Unified School district for 22 years. Eileen was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a great listener and made everyone feel very special. She loved to cook, sew, read, dance and garden. She loved color and wore it well. Eileen loved life! Eileen's greatest joys were her children and grandchildren. She was exceptionally happy that she lived long enough to see her great-grandsons, Max & Charlie. Eileen is free from a body that failed her in life. She is with God now and in our hearts forever. Thank you to Maria and Sutter Care Hospice. A Celebration of life will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Rancho Cordova City Hall in the American River Room North, 2729 Prospect Park Dr. Rancho Cordova from 12:00 pm 4:00 pm.
