    I worked with Eileen at No. 7 School she was a delightful personality with a beautiful smile. She had many stories to share. I remember catching up at retirement luncheons always upbeat and happy. I was lucky to have known her, we lost touch a few years ago and I had often meant to reach out. It was a pleasure to call her a friend. My deepest sympathies to her family rest in peace Eileen.
