I have many fond memories of Eileen from my time at the Shadyside Library, she was always cheerful and smiling, I’m so sorry to hear of her passing.
Grandma Neenie was such a wonderful lady and has such a big heart. I enjoyed our Perkins trips alongside her granddaughter Jillian. You are already deeply missed grandma Neenie but may you rest forever in peace.
In The Garden – first verse:
I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses,
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own,
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever know.
May God’s Holy Spirit surround you and lift you up. May He grant you peace and comfort. Amen
So sorry to hear of Eileen’s passing. In the many years I worked at the Shadyside Library, she was a constant smile coming thru the back door. I loved facilitating the adult book clubs and remember Eileen always gladly joining in the decisions and offering her words of wisdom and inspiration. I’m honored to have called her my friend.
