Eileen was born on August 10th, 1948 in Greenville, OH to Sebastian & Martha (Benanzer) Kremer.  She married Carl Hess in Frenchtown, OH on October 16th, 1971 and she was a member of Sacred Hearts’ Catholic Church, in Cardington. She was a 1966 graduate of Versailles High School, a lifelong public servant and worked for River Valley elementary schools starting as a crossing guard and progressing to a teacher’s aide. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, bunco nights with her friends, traveling to state capitals with her husband and you could always find her on the first base line of RV baseball games when her son coached.

Eileen was a bit of a seamstress, and those who were lucky enough will have one of the many afghans she crocheted. While she always liked her sandwiches plain, she lived her life to the fullest. Eileen was a selfless person who went out of her way to make sure her family and friends were comfortable and taken care of until the end.
