Eileen Kress Obituary

Eileen (Weisent) Kress, age 97, of Louisville, OH passed peacefully on January 1, 2024 surrounded by love. She was born on December 29, 1926 in Fulda, Ohio to Walter and Ella (Michel) Weisent. Eileen graduated from Caldwell High School in 1945. Eileen married Vincent Paul Kress on July 10, 1948. She will be remembered for the loving care of their son Jimmy until his death at age 16. Eileen was a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother. She tended her home, her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. Mom and Dad loved fishing, camping and traveling. Eileen was especially good at giving directions to others. She was an avid reader, loved a good game of Euchre and had an incredibly quick wit.
