Her entire life she was loved and cared for by her daughter Danielle Nittolo, a godsend. Through no fault of Eileen’s, she was estranged from her other two children, Laurie Macy and Anthony Nittolo, both of North Carolina. Despite many efforts, she never got to see her only grandchild. Please keep Eileen in your prayers and god bless everyone who took the time to read this.
