Eileen worked at Stewart-Warner in Lebanon for a period of time. She and her husband enjoyed maintaining their small house that they had built brand new in 1955; much of which was all done by their own hands, including re-roofing and adding a front porch.

Survivors include two grandchildren, Brenna L. (Jeff) Powell of Cave Creek, Arizona and Thomas Kevin Clawson of Lebanon; two great grandchildren, Shayne Thomas Powell and Ryne Thomas Clawson; and nieces and nephews.
