Obituary of Eileen A. Carson

Eileen Carson of Middletown N.Y., entered into eternal rest at home surrounded by her husband and children on Friday, October 9th. She was 72 years old. Eileen was born to William and Mildred Ebner in Philadelphia, PA on June 30, 1948. Eileen attended Hallahan Girls Catholic High School. She later met her husband, Mark, while working at JCPenney. Eileen was a parishioner at St. Paul's in Bullville, NY for over 30 years. A devout Catholic, she was involved in several ministries including Life in the Spirit Seminars, Renew, Cursillo, Kairos Prison Ministry, where she served as State Chairperson, Tres Dias, Religious Education and Adult Faith Formation. She earned her certificate in Advanced Scripture Study through the Archdiocese of NY and later became a Spiritual Director. Eileen volunteered as a Eucharistic Minister and served as a guardian over the adoration chapel at St. Joseph's in Middletown. Eileen's love for God and call to draw others close to Him was illuminated in each of these ministries. Eileen was a devoted wife and mother of 6 children. When her children were grown she felt called to become a house cleaner in order to serve others. She saw this not only as a profession, but also as a ministry. Eileen would often pray over each room that she cleaned. Eileen loved to crochet, knit and sew. She enjoyed hiking, camping and being outdoors. She particularly loved camping in Maine with her family and friends. Eileen loved music, she loved to sing and dance. Eileen's greatest love was for her family, particularly her grandchildren. Eileen is survived by her loving husband of over 40 years, Mark Carson; three sons: Robert Cunningham & wife Candice of Holly Springs, NC, Bryan Cunningham & wife Amy of Gettysburg, PA, Mark Carson & wife Brianne of Putnam Valley, NY; three daughters: Bonnie Platek & husband James of Chatham, NJ, Amanda Lopez & and husband Marc of Warwick, NY, Katie Carson-Decker & husband Matthew of Pine Bush, NY; brothers: William and Charles Ebner; sister Roberta Zielinski, and several nieces and nephews.
