She committed her life to making a loving home for her and children. Eileen worked out of her home for the Honeywell Corporation for 20 years and the Minneapolis Post Office for 10 years. In the early 1970’s she moved back to Menahga and opened a clothing store that she owned and operated for a couple of years. In the mid 1990’s she and Floyd retired and moved back to Menahga and built their dream log home. During the winter they resided in Arizona. In October 1997 she tragically lost her daughter Colleen. In 2008 she lost her husband Floyd. Eileen lived at their Menahga home until failing health caused her to become a resident of the Green Pine acres Nursing Home in 2021.
