She attended several colleges and obtained an Associates and Bachelor’s degrees. She was active in sports, Girl Scouts and always involved with children as a Camp Counselor and leading sports clinics.
Eileen relocated to Albany, NY where she met her husband Jerod, a widower with seven children. They married and journeyed to Washington State with their children in tow. They happily had two more children and raised their family in Washington. She is survived by the nine children: Katie Kay, of Los Angeles, CA; James J. Rosman of Hollywood FL; J.

The family would like to thank Dr. Sheran, Dr. Cutugno and the amazing and wonderful staff of Kingston Hospital’s Oncology Unit for their sensitive care and professionalism.
