Eileen Rose (Duffield) Proctor

Of Oxford, England, passed away peacefully Thursday at the age of 85. Eileen was a pioneer who left her home and everything she knew to marry a "yank" and start a family in the United States. She loved to dance, sip tea, and shop for bargains. She is survived by three children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Eileen is remembered as a brave, independent, and loving woman who always carried with her a cheeky sense of humor and a purse full of coupons.
