Eileen M Ahrens (my mom), 89, of Southport, passed away on Wednesday March 4, 2020. She was born on April 5, 1930 to the late Marguerite and John Marischen (fantastic grandparents).
Eileen was preceded in death by her daughter, Cindy, which broke her heart but her strong faith always prevailed. She is survived by a daughter, Marcia and son-in-law Geoff White, two grandsons, Brian and Jason White, and her great-granddaughter Emma White. She was a hands-on, always involved, loving mother and grandmother and she will be dearly missed by her family.
She was also survived by many dear friends, including, one who described her as “one of the most unselfish, kind, generous and loving persons I’ve ever known and a brick in her trust in God’s provision, not only for her own family, but for all mankind”.
A private family service will take place at our family’s gravesite in Ohio.
