    To the Annemann/Naughton Family…it is with sincere sadness that I write this. It was 37 years ago when I made my first connection with your family through Brian while stationed together in Texas. When I met Eileen in 2011 while working with her at Social Security, I was certain God solidified my connection with this family. Every time I talked with Eileen she always had a positive outlook and kept me abreast to what was going on with Brian (smile). The last time I ran into her at work earlier this year, I was unaware of her battles…she was her same positive person she had always been. She will be missed and Heaven certainly has gained an angle and I am certain her memories will be the shining light in your lives…God Bless You in such a difficult time is my prayer.

    • Michael Anneman

      Thanks Carla she was special

    I have known Eileen since her childhood days on McDonough Avenue in North Scranton, when we were next door neighbors. My brother, Michael, who had Down syndrome, would frequently visit the Naughton family. Although he loved them all dearly, Eileen was one of his favorites. Mike passed away in 2008, and I would like to think that he was there with her parents, brother, and nephews to welcome her to her new heavenly home. RIP Eileen

    Our sincerest condolences go out to the Anneman and Naughton families from my brother, Don, and myself.

    I am saddened to hear of the passing of such a remarkable kind and loving person. First and foremost, my heart and prayers go out to her family and friends. I had the privilege of being Eileen’s supervisor for quite some time, which gives me so many memories to reflect back on. During that time, I got to know Eileen very well and we had great times at work. I could still hear and see her laughing, which we did often. Words can’t even express how much I wish she was still here and not have gone through such suffering as she did with her illness. She is at peace, but she will be greatly missed. Until we see you again Eileen. Keep smiling and laughing like you always do. God Bless!

    • Michael Anneman

      Thanks Diane your words of kindness are very appreciated.

    I am extremely saddened and heartbroken to hear of Eileen’s passing. She was such a sweet, kind, funny, wonderful woman. I had the pleasure of working with her at SSA. Like Diane, I can still hear her laughing. She was always so pleasant and such a joy to be around. Eileen meant so much to a lot of people. You truly have my sincerest condolences. I can’t imagine how difficult this must be for your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May she rest in peace. God bless.

    • Michael Anneman

      Thank you Kim she was all of that and much more we will be lost without her.
