  2. Christie “Eileen” was one of the most wonderful and caring persons I ever had the pleasure of knowing. She lived that no one was better than her and she was no better than anyone else. I have known her since the 7th grade and more so in high school and all I can say about Christie is “she was one wonderful, great LADY to know”. She will be so missed at the ’53 luncheons and all she had done for our class. My deepest sympathy to Ted, the children and all. I will miss our once a month phone chats, as I have for a few months. Rest in peace special one. �

  4. Ted and Family; We are all sadened by your, (and our), loss of a wonderful person! Christie Brennan, or Eileen Perkins as we in the Central High School Graduating Class of 1953 all knew her, was one of the most wonderful people that I have ever had the privilege of knowing! Her dedication to her family, friends, and us, her classmates was second to none! Her many hours of planning, working and making things happen in our class functions over the many years has been and will forever be remembered, and greatly appreciated by us all! We will continue to have our monthly dinner meetings, because we all know that is what she would have wanted us to do, but it won’t be the same without her there with us! God Bless you our Sister; you will truly b
