    I am so sorry to hear of Eileen’s passing. I will miss her coming in for her appointments. She was a wonderful person. Love and prayers for the family!

    The fair family shares in your sorrow. Eileen was my fair mom as I was the 2nd woman on the board. We served 4 years together and remained good friends. I will miss her calls and my calls to her to talk about old times. I will always remember our friendship and laughs we had together. Our matching outfits at fairtime and the many other things we shared. Such a sweet lady. Peace to you all.
