Eileen Hausmann Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Eileen (Dineen) Hausmann, who left us suddenly and unexpectedly on February 1st, 2024 at the age of 80.

Eileen was born in Holyoke on May 26, 1943, daughter of Hattiebel Spring Dineen. Eileen’s life was a testament to her warmth, strength, and boundless love. Eileen attended local Holyoke schools and graduated from the Holyoke Hospital Nursing School in 1964. As a Registered Nurse early in her career, Eileen worked at Holyoke Hospital and provided private homecare. Eileen’s greatest accomplishment was dedicating four decades of her career as a Registered Nurse and Health Coordinator to the children and families of Holyoke-Chicopee-Springfield Head Start, Inc.  While at Head Start, she left behind a legacy of compassion, loyalty and dedication that will be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing and working with her.

Her spirit was a vibrant shade of purple, reflecting the depth of her character and the warmth of her heart. Eileen’s love knew no bounds, especially when it came to her cherished children and grandchildren. Eileen is survived by her son Charles and his wife Jennifer of Scituate and daughter Lisa and her husband John of Pembroke. Eileen had six grandchildren: Jillian, Lindsey, Parker, Sadie, Ryder and Cooper, whose achievements and happiness were her greatest pride.

Eileen’s zest for life was evident in her love of travel to her favorite destinations, her mother-daughter trips with Lisa, her favorite casinos, and dinner trips to her favorite restaurants when she came down to visit her children.  Her joy was matched only by her affinity for warm summer beach days, Bob Seger’s Old Time Rock & Roll, and watching her grandchildren play sports.

She was the life of every gathering, especially during holidays, and always looked forward to her weekly outings with her circle of friends.  They faithfully supported the local restaurant scene and specialty nights such as “Hamburger night” and “Prime Rib night.” They would spend their evenings laughing and sharing stories for hours. Eileen also enjoyed listening and dancing to local musicians.

Eileen's essence, as endless as the ocean she adored, will continue to inspire and envelop us.

Farewell, Mom, until we are reunited in the eternal embrace of the tide. With deepest love and remembrance, Charles, Lisa, Jenn, John, Jillian, Lindsey, Parker, Sadie, Ryder and Cooper.

A celebration of Eileen's extraordinary life will be held on Friday, February 16th at the Barry J. Farrell Funeral Home, 2049 Northampton Street, Holyoke, with calling hours from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, and a service from 1:00 to 1:30 pm. A memorial luncheon will follow at Wycoff Country Club.
