Obituary of Eileen Burg
Eileen S. Burg, age 98 of Bath, New York and Keuka Lake passed away on January 9, 2023 at home and set sail for her final journey.
Born May 22, 1924 in Fonda, New York, the daughter of the late Ernest N. Shoup and Doris (Scott) Shoup.
Eileen was predeceased by her husband, Leo W. Burg and her sisters, Esther S. Van Vranken and Dawn S. Fribley. Surviving are son, Scott (Leslie) Burg and two wonderful grandkids, Katie and Jason Burg. They have been a source of pride and joy for Eileen.
"I have had a good life thanks to my loving family and friends. I hope you see yourself in this ramble. I do have to mention Mary Duggan, who has weathered the ups and downs of the last 65 years with me. There are two coffee mates, "the neighboring Lakers" who shared happy summer days at Keuka Lake, my personal Uber gal, the four snow skiers who now prefer to lunch, my two DSS partners, Myrtle Beach adoptees, TK and Honey, 11 years of "Eileen-O-Vin-O", my son, Scott, thanks for all the TLC and on and on."
Laugh often, love deeply and for once have a banana split for lunch"
An excerpt from Tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom that I like:
"Love is how you stay alive - even after you're gone. As long as we can love each other and remember the feeling of love we had, we can die without ever going away. All the love you created is still there. You live on - in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were there. Death ends life, not a relationship."
Per Eileen's request, there will be no calling hours and a private burial will be held at the family's convenience.
