Eileen P. Antell, age 91, of Marlboro; formerly of West Roxbury, Cape Cod, and Maine, passed suddenly on September 30, 2013. She was the wife of the late Patrick J. Antell for 42 years. Eileen was the mother of Michael Antell of Gloucester, Susan Antell of Marlboro, and the late Lisa Antell. She also leaves two grandchildren: Heather Antell and Shaun Antell.
Eileen emigrated from Tipperary, Ireland when she was four years old along with her father and sister; her mother had passed away in Ireland. After schooling in a boarding school in her younger days and at St. Joseph's High School in Roxbury, MA, Eileen held several jobs in the secretarial area. Once she married she became a very devoted wife and loving mother to her three children. Not having a mother figure of her own she supported her children and lived her life through them, all the while taking on part-time jobs to make sure their needs were met.
Eileen was an avid reader, movie buff, and sports fan. She had an interest in everything that was going on around her in life.
