Eileen Mae Alsop, of Garden Grove, California, entered Heaven on August 31, 2015. She was born on June 3, 1925 to Harry and Nell Delay in New Marion, Indiana, and was welcomed Home by her parents and two sisters Arwilda and Lucille. She is remembered in love by her five daughters and their husbands, Barbara and Alan Graas, Charlene and Carl Leggieri, Karen and Stephen Black, Cheryl and Bill Minshew, Patty and Chris Jung; and by her 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
A life may be measured by the number of years, months and days between the first breath and the last. By this measure, Eileen was 90 years, 2 months, and 28 days. A better, more meaningful measure of an abundant life is the number of times that the three words “I Love You” have passed across the lips or entered the ear. In this way, Eileen’s life can be measured in the hundreds of thousands. She had an infectious laugh that charmed us all. And she loved the Lord and served Him all of her life.
A memorial service will be held at Garden Grove United Methodist Church on September 12, 2015 at 10:00 am, followed by a private graveside service at El Toro Memorial Park. Flowers may be sent to the church or gifts in her memory may be sent to the Orange County Center of the Braille Institute.
