She met Perry while he was on leave from Camp Atterbury in Indiana, where he was stationed prior to being sent overseas during WW II. After their marriage they settled in Moline and raised their family.
She worked in the law office of Trevor & Schweibert until the birth of her first child. In 1957, she began to work for the city of Moline in the Parks and Recreation Department. She retired from there in 1985. After their retirements, Eileen and Perry loved to travel to Myrtle Beach, Door County and to visit family and friends.
