Eileen was my roommate Vintage Park/Morningstar and I'm very sorry for your loss. She was a very kind and nice Christian lady and I enjoyed my time with her. We both went to the Nazarene Church here in Neodesha so was glad when she became my roommate because it was someone I knew. She will be missed. (Submitted by Pauline's Daughter)
