Catherine Regina Eagen
On August 31, 2021, Catherine Regina Eagen "Kathleen" passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was 91 years old, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She married Walter "Wally" Eagen Jr. in 1958, and a few years later they moved to Westport, CT to raise their family. One of her favorite family memories was at the end of summer days handing over their four children to Wally for a daily trip to Compo Beach, giving her an hour or two of quiet time. Then she would drive to Compo to meet family and friends for dinner and cocktails. In 1996 she retired to Port St Lucie, FL where she enjoyed good friends, traveling, and visiting with her children and grandchildren.
Private Internment, Funeral Mass October 16, at 11:00AM at St Luke Church 49 Turkey Hill Road North, Westport, CT 06880.
Catherine was predeceased by her husband Walter Eagen Jr. and is survived by her children: Walter Eagen III (Cathleen), Maura Ripson (Steve), James Eagen (Steve Commendatore), Michael Eagen (Amy), and her grandchildren: Sean Ripson, Owen Eagen, Brendan Eagen, Patrick Eagen, Catherine Ripson and Caroline Eagen.
