Obituary

Eileen M. Cox
Bangor
Eileen Cox passed away peacefully May 14, 2019. She was born May 24, 1922 in St. John New Brunswick, the daughter of Hazel Sheehan and Harold McNulty. Eileen attended St. John’s Catholic Grammar School and graduated from John Bapst High School in 1940. On May 4, 1943 Eileen married Bill Cox, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Cox, Sr. in Florida, where Bill was serving in the U.S. Army.
Eileen spent many years volunteering for the organizations: St. Joseph Hospital Auxiliary, EMMC Hospital Auxiliary, Jay-Cee Wives and the Literacy Volunteer Reading Programs as well as helping her husband with his political career. In her later years she worked for Libby’s Card Shop. Then a job she truly loved, working with the elderly, at Eastern Area on aging, starting out as an outreach worker covering Bangor, Veazie and Hermon. She held a few different positions at the agency traveling many areas of the state. Eileen was a social security and insurance specialist and the coordinator for Maine Medicare Education Partnership. She trained volunteers to educate seniors on how to spot discrepancies on their medicare statements. Eileen worked for the Eastern Area on Aging for over 24 years, starting there at the age of 59.
Eileen and Bill enjoyed golf at the PVCC and traveling taking many trips to warmer places. She also loved playing bridge and her many trips to the coast with family and friends and especially loved her lobster along with many years of going to church suppers with friends.
Eileen was predeceased by her husband Bill, her parents Mr. and Mrs. McNulty, a sister Natalie Stimmell, her parents in law Mr. and Mrs. Bill Cox, Sr., her brothers in law Edward and Pauline Cox, John Cox, Lauren Cox, sisters -in-law Patricia and Donald McNally and Dorothy Cox.

She had many dear friends who passed before her, Annette, Helen, Marguerite and Lillian and she leaves behind a dear friend who visited her often, Rena Anderson.
The family would like to thank the staff at Bangor Nursing and Rehab for providing the best possible care for Eileen and support to the family as well as to Beacon Hospice for their gentle care.
In keeping with Eileen’s wishes the family will celebrate her life with A Funeral Liturgy outside of Mass, 1 pm. Friday May 17, 2019 at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor, followed by the Rite of Committal at Mt. Pleasant Catholic Cemetery, Ohio St., Bangor.

My Aunt Eileen always took the time to make things special for me and my sisters. I loved when I got to sleep over in the special girly room with the poetry books, spool bed, and tiny eyeglasses. I slept like a princess. I also remember when she gave me a peach satin nightgown with lace when I was 10. I felt so grown-up. I also have fond memories of riding the tin horse in their driveway and remember the beautiful holiday tables and the curved white sofa. She was such an important part of my childhood and I will miss her.

With loving memories of Aunt Eileen: the spool bed, the red dining room, glamour, style and humor. As a loving Godmother, she had no equal.
