March 14, 1955 – May 14, 2019

 

Eileen was a mother, a child, a sister, a friend, a teacher, a healer, a nurse, and a child of God. She lived her life in the light, spreading love to all who met her.

We welcome you in joining us in a celebration of life for Eileen Marie Mahoney-Johnstone. There will be time for friends to gather at 4:00pm Tuesday at the Miller-Carlin Funeral Home Chapel in St. Cloud. A prayer service will be held from 7:30-8pm.

She moved to St. Cloud in 1966. She was Miss Sixteen of Minnesota in 1970. She graduated from Apollo High School and the St. Paul Ramsey Nursing program. She loved to learn and after completing her bachelor’s in nursing at Alverno College in Milwaukee, she continued to study and provide healing touch, heart math, massage therapy, reiki, essential oil therapy, tai chi, polarity therapy, yoga, infant massage, and psychology of forgiveness.
