City of Death

Los Angeles, CA

Born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA, Eileen moved in 1959 to Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute for three years. In the mid-60’s she moved to Los Angeles to work at Gulf Oil, where she eventually made her home and established deep and lifelong friendships. Her interest in psychology led her to become involved with The Glendon Association, where she worked as an invaluable volunteer for many decades.

In 1978 Eileen met Frank Tobe, who would later become her husband of 42 years. Together, Eileen and Frank traveled the world as close companions, alongside their treasured friends. Each day was an opportunity for shared adventures, large and small.

On the 9th of July, after a date night with her husband, Eileen experienced a ruptured brain aneurysm, which led to her death six days later in the hospice ward of Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Eileen leaves behind her beloved son, Douglas, as well as Tamara Zuniga, Warren Firestone and Jenny Cagan, whom she loved and cared for as her own, and her honorary granddaughter Olivia Zuniga.

Her ashes will be buried under a shade tree on the Santa Barbara, CA ranch where she lived for the last 28 years. She will be missed and not forgotten.
