Eileen was born May 23, 1961 in Sauk Centre to Norbert and Virginia (Hartung) Eickhoff. She is a 1979 graduate of Holdingford High School. Eileen married the love of her life on a snowy day, November 12, 1983 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Albany. She worked at Stearns Bank in Holdingford before doing daycare out of her home; and most currently working at AMPS in Albany as a receptionist and Sales person. Eileen loved her Minnesota Twins; especially Michael Cuddyer. She enjoyed being outside and mowing the lawn; her most favorite place to be was the mouth of the Gooseberry River in Duluth; where she felt a calming by the running water. Eileen’s family meant the absolute world to her; she never missed a sporting event and enjoyed getting together with family and having Chicken Noodle Soup or a friendly fish fry. She was a sweetheart with a great sense of humor; Eileen will be dearly missed.

Eileen is survived by her husband of 30 years Alan of Albany; sons, Randy (Samantha) of Albany, Charlie (Emily Murphy) of St. Cloud; siblings, Robert Eickhoff of Huron, South Dakota, Richard (Sharon) Eickhoff of Albany, Mary Ann (Steve) White of Little Falls; mother and step father-in-law, Norma and Don of Alexandria; and grand puppy, Morgan. She was preceded in death by her parents; nephew, Brian Eickhoff; and father-in-law, Quincy “William” Lockridge.
