I didn't know Eileen, but thought her name should be here.

'A Good Friend to Many'
Eileen M. Rice was a woman of many passions. Politics. Clothes. Latin. Her dog, Mozart. Her family described her as sophisticated, opinionated and caring, a woman who worked on behalf of animal rights and poor people but also indulged her fashion moods by owning 11 bathrobes.

Ms. Rice, 57, raised her son, Brian Keegan, and her daughter, Lesli Rice, largely as a single mother. She was an executive assistant for Marsh & McLennan."She was meticulous in her home and in her work and in her person," recalled Patrick Keegan, her younger brother. "I'll miss our conversations. She always talked about the underdog. She was unbelievably caring."

Lesli Rice said her mother was her foundation, and self-reliance was one of the many life lessons her mother taught. Her mother also passed on a love for the classics and for the Latin she learned during the Roman Catholic Masses of a bygone era. "She had a strong sense of values," said Lesli Rice. "She took pride in her work and everything she did. I don't think I'd be where I am without her. She was a good friend to many."
