    candle 8She was an amazing person that I was blessed to be allowed to call aunt. She always had God’s worship on her lips. Aunt Eileen used her talents and gifts to minister uplifting the souls of everyone that heard. Love you all and praying for you.

    The Angel family were very special to our family during our years at Hazelwood Baptist in the 1950s. I’m so sorry to hear of Eileen’s passing. Our deepest condolences.

    candle 8John,
    We all saw the love Eileen had for our Lord, the love she had for you, and the family, and the love she had for others. I will always remember the smiles she brought to the faces of her grandchildren when they saw her, and the love that she showed them. She will be missed deeply, but now is at peace residing in her heavenly home. My deepest sympathy.

      candle 6When we were 15 years old, Eileen taught me how to dance before I visited American Bandstand. She played the organ at my wedding. She was a sweet friend for more than 60 years and I am so thankful I will see her again.

    No one cold play the piano with such feeling and anointing as Eileen. I learned so much from her. And when she played and sang, there was none better. Knew her from Cross Keys Baotist Church. Taught my daughter piano and me on the organ. A real precious sister in Christ, she will certainly be missed.
