Details:
  • Eileen Findley Obituary Eileen Findley, age 73, a resident of Pasadena, Maryland, passed away peacefully on 3 November, 2017, at Hospice of the Chesapeake from complications from Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), a type of bone marrow cancer. She courageously fought this disease for over three years.

    Born in Point Marion, Pennsylvania on 14 March, 1944, Eileen led a wonderful, productive, and meaningful life. She received both a bachelors and masters degrees in education and taught elementary school in Pennsylvania and Maryland for over twenty years. In 2000 she and family members started a successful Pharmacy Benefit Management Company in the healthcare field. She was very involved with youth soccer, basketball and lacrosse activities and was a member of the Pasadena Pony Club. Eileen was an avid outdoors individual who taught her children fishing, camping, skiing and a variety of other activities. Eileen was skilled at many things. For example, she personally designed and renovated her home in pasadena several times over the years. She restored and installed a hand lathed 170 year old staircase and designed and built multiple playground sets for her grand children. She was happiest rocking a grandchild in her lap looking out at her birdfeeder. She was a wonderful, loving, and creative mother with enough energy for everyone. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. She will be greatly missed by them all.

    She is survived by her husband Kenneth whom she married in 1974 while he was an instructor at the Naval Academy, sons Kenneth Jr. (Krystal) and Randy (Michelle), daughter Kristy and eight grandchildren. In accordance with her wishes, services will be privately held for immediate family members. Inurnment will be at the Naval Academy Columbarium at a later date.

    The family requests that in lieu of flowers, any donations be made to the American Cancer Society or the MDS Foundation.
