Eileen was a homemaker and entrepreneur. She was a regular on
the yard sale circuit - so much so that at the repeated suggestions by
her family, she opened a second hand store in the 1980's called the
Poor Folks Second Hand Store located in Fruita. Later in life, she
loved to go dancing, often hitting the senior dances three to four
times a week.

Eileen never believed in wearing black to a funeral, so feel free to
wear something other than black to the services.
