My deepest sympathy and prayers to you. Eilen touched my life and has a special place in my heart forever.

I met Mrs. Shaffer and her husband while working in a law office in Paulding years ago. Then, 10 years or more ago I had the pleasure of working with Tammy Johanns, Eileen's granddaughter. Mrs. Shaffer's legacy of integrity, a caring nature and her strong work ethic shine on in her family members. She will most certainly be missed. You have my deepest sympathy.

Eileen was such a wonderful person&friend.A generous heart&compassionate person.We worked together at Meijer for years&she became my "other mother",when she retired we would visit and always had great advice for me.Yesterday I was unwrapping a beautiful crystal vase she gave to me& I said I need to write a card to Eileen cause I haven't talked to her in quite awhile,of course I didn't know about her passing then.Always go with the feeling of a need to call or write someone when your thinking of them cause it may be too late.I love you Eileen,RIP

To Donny and Sharon,
I want to let you know how sorry I am for the loss of your dear Mother. You were blessed with a sweet, friendly, and spunky mom, always a delight to be around with. She always had time to help others and enjoyed every minute of it.
With my deepest sympathy,
Nancy Chapman
