Eileen Frail originally of the Bronx, NY passed peacefully on October 11, 2018. Eileen was born on March 28, 1926. She was the beloved wife of the late Frank Frail, mother of the late Fran (Diane) Frail, Kevin (Terry) Frail, Roseanne (the late Austin) Brooks and Thomas (Charlene) Frail. Grandmother to the late Gregory Brooks, Kelly (Marc) Rampolla, Michael, Erin, Brian, Meaghan, Keri, Kieran, and the late Brendan Frail. Great Grandmother to Jayden, Quinn, Talan and Delaney Rampolla and Jackson Helsley . Beloved sister of the late Joan (John) Gross and Raymond (Patricia) Maher. Loved dearly by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Eileen (Mom, Gram, Aunt Eileen) was known for her love of vacations, singing, dancing and performing in various local shows. You could also find her on the golf course or bowling alley with her many friends. Or just simply at home, where she made some of the most delicious food, the recipes passed down to the generation below, but not perfected.
Eileen was most happy surrounded by her family. Whether it be in a small group, or large family function, she could be found sometimes just sitting in the corner, smiling and listening to what everyone was doing, and commenting on how proud she was of them. She took no bigger stage than Christmas, where she took on the roll as Kris Kringle handing out gifts to all.
This incredibly tough, loving and generous woman will be missed by many.
Funeral Mass will be Celebrated at Gate of Heaven Cemetery at the Chapel of St. Francis of Assisi on Saturday October 13, 2018 at 10:30 AM.
