Very sad and sorry for you, Pam and family. Eileen was a great lady and role model. At Conalco, she was far more than a secretary. She was an assistant to the industrial engineers, planners and material managers and an integral part of operations management. She was an key player in the project of moving many of the budgeting and planning processes at Conalco from 13 column spreadsheets to a computerized linear programmed process with her boss Ad. Her attention to detail was unmatched. In addition to her professional skills, she was a lady of honesty and integrity in all things. Her contributions to Conalco’s computerization cannot be overstated. John adds that Eileen was a simply nice, smart, caring lady.
RIP Eileen..

Such a beautiful lady in all ways. She will be missed my many. I remember her mother Esther so well and it was an honor to care for her at Shadyside Care Center. The girls were so supportive to their mom and to me. I loved them.
