    Our sincere condolences go out to the family of Eileen, a sweet, quiet woman we enjoyed getting to know at Chris and Melissa’s wedding. It was always fun to visit her at family gatherings in Massachusetts and Rhodes Island. “Double-Bubbe” loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. My husband and I took Finna and Hope to visit in her home in Warwick a while ago. We all had a good time. She will be remembered and missed! Susan and Martin Dreyer

    I feel a sense of loss because I’d just gotten Auntie Eileen back into
    my life.
    I hope that my three first cousins, Pam, Debbie, and Steve, appreciate their blessing, having had their mom with them far into adulthood, blessed as I am, having my mom, Auntie Eileen’s sister, Ruthie, with me all through my life and still.

    Those Paull gals spent 90+ years making the world a beautiful place. I hope that they are comforted by replaying in their minds wonderful times spent with that special lady.

    Steve, Pam and Debbie…I’m thinking of all of you on this incredibly sad day. I often thought of Eileen as a second mom rather than a cousin. She was truly a woman of valor. May her memory be a blessing.
    Much love, Arlene, Corrie, Michael and families

    Dear Steve,

    Dear Steve, Pam, and Debbie, I just learned of your mom’s death and remember our Chanukah Parties as kids and the many occasions to be together. I have thought of your Dad a lot too as we were recently in Germany where we were reminded of the devastation of WWII. So glad your Mom could be part of your lives for so many years. I always admired her style and beauty.

    Thinking of you,
    Your Cousin Sandy
