Eileen was a homemaker until her children had finished school and then she went onto work as a recreation director in a local nursing home. She was also a Mary Kay beauty consultant. Being apart of the Saint Mary Magdalen Parish was very import to Eileen, she was a past eucharist minister there along with attending all of the activities and being apart of different groups the church offered.
