Eileen worked as a bartender in the establishment that they owned as well as assisting in many projects of construction.
Eileen said she was the true representative of a 'boat person'. Her happiest times were on the Allegheny River with all of the friends that she made. They shared good weather, good times, and lots of laughs.
Along with boating and traveling the river by pontoon, she was also very creative and crafty. Her past hobbies were with ceramics, woodwork, and gardening.
