Our beloved sweet mother, Eileen Sharp, died on Monday 25th of July 2022. She quietly drifted away in her sleep....just how she hoped she would leave this life when she was ready.
We are overwhelmed with sadness and grief, but also pleased that mommy's battles with illnesses are over. No more pain....just peace and freedom.
Mommy will be cremated July 30th at 1pm.
In good time we (her children), will take her back to Ireland where we will scatter her ashes at the Burren.

I have added the above message for Eleanor, Eileen’s daughter

Many of us will have fond memories of Eileen in Holland, please add them to give a little comfort to her family at this sad time.

Rest in peace, Eileen. A life well lived, you will be loved and remembered always

I don’t think I came across Eleanor but my condolences to the family.


LondonBelle Report 28 Jul 2022 09:35

Not sure I came across Eileen on the Boards either, what was her board name?

Regardless, it always sad to hear of another Member passing <3. My condolences to Eileen's family, may you now rest in peace <3


AnninGlos Report 28 Jul 2022 09:53

Belle I think it was either Eleanor of Claddagh or Eileen in Holland but there may have been another one. she was on here way way back.

Aw so sorry to hear this. I do seem to remember a lady on here from Holland a long time ago, cant remember her board name though.
Thinking of all her family at this sad time

We had several from Holland in the early days (although not Dutch we had Joyce and Sylvia both married to Dutch men as well as Eileen.

I am pretty sure Eileen used the board name Claddagh.

Coincidentally, Eileen passed away on Joyce’s (Dutch) birthday which is also my birthday so I will always remember them especially, on that day

Gosh that is a coincidence Liz

Purple **^*Sparkly*^** Diamond Report 29 Jul 2022 00:29

Yet another coincidence - Eleanor sent me a copy of the card the family have made for Saturday.
The verse they have chosen is the one I added here years ago Remember Me.

I will nudge the thread so others can read the verses.

Bless her, Eileen was such a kind lady, Even sent a postcard when my daughter was in hospital, though she had never met her. So caring, Eileen will be missed.

I am sorry I only seem to appear with sad news.

I do my best to stay in touch with people but life’s a struggle and I just do what I can.

It doesn’t mean I don’t think about my friends still on the site

Love to you all,
