Eileen M. Mcfadden

December 5, 1943 — August 31, 2018

Eileen M. (Chapman) McFadden, 74 of 207 South Beech Street, Mt. Carmel, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, August 31, 2018 in her home.

Born in Ashland on December 5, 1943 she was a daughter of the late William and Laura (Shriner) Chapman.

Eileen was a retired seamstress having worked in the local garment industry.

In the former St. Ignatius Church in Centralia, she married James J. McFadden, Sr. who preceded her in death on September 10, 2008.

She was a member of Divine Redeemer Church in Mt. Carmel and the ILGWU.

Her family was of most importance to her; she truly lived for her children, grandchildren and her great-granddaughter. She was known to everyone as “Nanny” even to many who were not family. She attended all of her grandchildren’s school activities and sporting events and kept quite busy doing so. Her family was her life; she would do anything for them. Nanny will be lovingly remembered, deeply missed and surely never forgotten.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by her son, William James McFadden on June 24, 2018; her beloved grandson, Nathan William McFadden on December 2, 2005; and as the last surviving member of her immediate family, all of her numerous brothers and sisters.

Surviving are her son, James J. McFadden, Jr. and his wife Cathy of Mount Carmel; her daughter, Angela Picarella and her partner Dr. Jeffrey Greco of Oak Ridge Estates, Mount Carmel Twp.; her daughter-in-law, Ann McFadden of Mount Carmel; four grandchildren, Loni Ann (Picarella) Aiello and her husband Joseph of Wilkes-Barre and Bryan, Kyle and Benjamin McFadden all of Mount Carmel; one great-granddaughter, Gia Aiello; two sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.

Recitation of the Holy Rosary will be held in Divine Redeemer Church, 300 West Avenue, Mount Carmel on Thursday morning, September 6, 2018 at 10:30 am. A Mass of Christian Burial will then be celebrated at 11:00 am. Rev. Ryan M. Fischer, Pastor will be the celebrant. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery, Ralpho Township.
