Eileen L. Kline, 94, passed away early Wednesday (Jan. 2, 2013) at Noyes Memorial Hospital in Dansville.
Eileen was born July 3, 1918, in Springwater, the daughter of Gordon and Hazel (Perkins) Leeson. She grew up in and has remained a life resident of the Springwater area. Eileen and Charles Kline were married July 3, 1939 at the Wayland United Methodist Church. Together, they celebrated 53 years of marriage prior to Charles passing away in August, 1992. Eileen was a school teacher for the majority of her working career, teaching at the Marrowback School and the Mt. Pleasant School, both one-room schools. Eileen took a sabbatical from teaching for a period of time to raise their four children, Charleen, Aaron, Allen and Faith. During this time, she worked as an aid for the mentally handicapped. At the age of 50, Eileen completed her bachelor's degree at SUNY Geneseo, becoming a certified teacher and began a career at the Craig Developmental Center in Sonyea, specializing in special education.
Eileen was a very active life member of the Springwater United Methodist Church. She was always lending a hand at church dinners and bazaars, and was a loyal Sunday school teacher. Her hobbies were many as she loved baking homemade bread, rolls and pies. She was an avid quilter and made many cathedral window pillows for several members of her family. Eileen took great pleasure in reading and taking walks to keep her mind and body strong. Her family was very important to her, and she visited with them whenever she could. Eileen was a strong and dedicated family woman who will be dearly missed by all.
