Eileen W. Tennis, 89, of Allenstown, NH was warmly embraced by her heavenly father on November 13, 2023. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 47 years, Glenn Tennis.
Eileen was born on March 3, 1934 in Lowell, MA to Clifford & Doris (Peabody) Merrill. She graduated from SchoolCraft College as an RN. She worked at St. John’s Hospital as a nurse for 25 years. Eileen loved spending time at her cottage in Prince Edward Island, Canada with her family and friends. She was quick to attend any event for her grand and great grandchildren and loved to babysit for them as well.
Eileen was a member of Centralville United Methodist Church for most of her life, where she was affectionately known as “grandma teacher.” When she moved to Allenstown, she was happy to find a new church family at Suncook United Methodist Church.
Eileen is survived by her brother Ralph and his wife Cheryl, of Litchfield, NH; her three sons, Gary and his wife Diane of Pelham, NH, Dale and his wife Lynda of Allenstown, NH and Kerry and his wife Chelli of Nottingham, NH. She was the proud grandmother of 10 and great grandmother to 15.
Eileen was predeceased by her brothers, Clifford and Charles Merrill, and her great granddaughter, Cassandra.
