Eileen Mae Thome, 77, of Palm Coast FL, passed away on May 27, 2024, under the compassionate care of Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

She was born on February 17, 1947, in Summit, New Jersey to the late Robert V. and Ellen M. Kelly. She graduated from Summit High School in 1965. Eileen worked as a beautician before working at the FAA center in Palm Coast. Eileen obtained her Real Estate License, working for Coldwell Banker Realty before retiring in 2015. Eileen was an avid bowler and roller-skater in her younger years. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, traveling, going to the beach, cruising the world, going to casinos, watching her grandkids grow up and drinking all the beer her heart could enjoy. 

Eileen is survived by her daughter, Karen Eyler and her husband Nathan; son, Kevin Thome and his significant other Ritchelle Lamb; grandchildren, Devin Thome, Logan Eyler, Lily Eyler; aunt to Shannon Smith, Sammantha Smith, Sarah Flateau, Genaro “Jerry” Zendt. 

Eileen was preceded in death by her three loves, Roger Thome, Ole John Hansen, George Jahn; her parents Robert and Ellen Kelly; sister, Patricia Kelly; niece, Lori Russo. 

Eileen was loved by many. She was not only an amazing mother and role model of what a true caregiver is, but always put others before herself. She loved hard and was stubborn as a mule. Her unconditional love for her grandchildren and undeniable bond with Devin will live on, as we will remember her always. She is no longer in pain and is dancing on the beach, drinking beer with all our loved ones who have left us too soon. Fly high Mom! Til we see each other again…..

Eileen wanted us to have a party in her memory, which will be arranged at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made in Eileen’s name to Stuart F. Meyer Hospice House.

Eileen’s family entrusted her arrangements to Clymer Funeral Home & Cremations.
