Margaret “Eileen” (Evert) Finnegan has taken her last breath on this earth, but her laughter will ring on forever.  On March 24, 2017, she joined her beloved husband, the late John Bernard Finnegan, in everlasting peace.  Surely she was welcomed into heaven by her loving grandsons, Michael Jillson and Matthew Eggleton, and her beloved sons-in-law, Lloyd Shinsato and Kirk Higdon.  Eileen’s humor, love, generosity and thoughtfulness will be missed by her many friends and her family:
