I first met the Strome family as a new neighbour when we moved onto Riverside Drive in Tecumseh. Little did I know that Eileen would become one of my life’s best friends. Even though there was a big age gap our friendship never skipped a beat.
She loved to walk at night and talk about her day, her family and her life. We shared many laughs and secrets that best friends do. Many outings continued when Eileen and Mel moved to Riverside condo and of course that included hot chocolate.
I always felt part of the Strome family and was included in family celebrations of Mel and Eileen.
I miss Eileen already but she was ready to rejoin her love, Mel. R I P my dear and sweet friend.
I’ll miss your mom for the rest of my life! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of her life! We’d be getting our list done now for decorating! Christmas time was precious to Eileen. Every morning she would say the same thing “ I got up early to fix the decorations on the tree”. Then we would have to go down the hallway and pick up the puppy (Lola) and bring her to see the tree!
We had a lot of laughs and fun! And I’ll never forget spending time together whether it was shopping or the Strome boys playing hockey or just hanging out! She loved you all dearly and now she’s gone home with Melvin and the rest of her family! Many times in the last couple of weeks she talked to Melvin and she was very much looking forward to seeing everyone. ❤️❤️ So many memories!
Mrs. Strome was a warm and welcoming woman. She welcomed my daughter into her family with open arms. She leaves behind a wonderful family as her legacy. She seemed much younger than her years; very alert. She will be missed, but is home now. Prayers for all the family. Martha Faulkner
