Biography

  • Birth: Eileen Kempen was born on February 24, 1925 in Little Chute, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: She was married on November 16, 1946 in St John Nepomucene Church, Little Chute, Wisconsin.
  • Death: She died on July 1, 2014, at age 89.
  • Note: Eileen W. Pagel, age 89, died July 1, 2014. She was born February 4, 1925, in Little Chute, the daughter of Martin and Delia (Hermsen) Kempen. She married Bob Pagel November 16, 1946, at St. John's Catholic Church in Little Chute. Eileen traveled extensively, especially as a military wife. Visits to the Catholic shrines of Lourdes, France, Medjugorie, Yugolsavia and the Holy Land were spiritually inspiring. She was very active at St. Peter's Catholic Church, fed the poor at the Luke House, led the rosary and was a lector at the weekday and Sunday Masses, was Eucharist minister at Masses and for the homebound and started St. Peter's prayer ministry. She loved music, played the piano, and sang with the MATC choir. MATC choir took the group to Rome, Italy, where they sang for Pope John Paul II and at a Mass at St. Peter's Basilica. She accompanied Bob on several military assignments and in 1951, she took three children, ages 8 months, 2 and 3 years old, by ship to be with Bob in Bordeaux, France.

    Eileen composed several poems. This one was her favorite: THE SWEETNESS OF LIFE. Life can be sweet, it can be sour. It is all up to you and your attitude. You must know Jesus and what he died for. He suffered for you and he suffered for me. This opened the gates of heaven, you see. So when troubles come your way, face them until the end of the day. When night time falls and you go to bed, upon your pillow you place your head. You think of Jesus and what he once said, I'm leaving for heaven, but my spirit I will send to comfort and guide you till we meet again. So do not grow weary and throw up your hands, for Jesus is with you, up to the end.

    Eileen is survived by her dedicated husband, Bob, married for 67 years; a son, Tom (Jeanne) Pagel and three daughters, Mary (Sam) Valenza, Barbara (Wayne) Acker, and Patricia (Ron) Bowden; one sister, Donna (Jim) Wildenberg.
