The daughter of Lloyd and Katherine (Ver Heul) Nolin, Eileen was born on September 15, 1952, on the family farm just east of Monroe, Iowa. She graduated from Monroe High School in 1970 and attended DMACC. On May 27, 1972, she was united in marriage to Larry Johnson in Des Moines. Eileen worked at several places during her career. Most recently at WalMart and the Goodwill. Eileen enjoyed gardening, playing games, reading, playing piano and she spent many hours volunteering at Hope Ministries and Discover Hope. Her greatest joy, however, was the time spent with her grandchildren.

"Eileen and I were MHS classmates. She was a kind, gentle and articulate person, ever mindful of the feelings and needs of others. Eileen's often shy demeanor cloaked a quick wit and excellent sense of humor that I greatly appreciated about her. Please accept my deepest sympathy at the loss of a genuinely wonderful soul.

"I enjoyed being around Elieen. We would run into eachother almost weekly at Newton Perkins. I would visit with her as she was there. I saw her last time and we hugged and we both said take care and love you. We both volunteered at Discover Hope 515. No body could have been any kinder and gentle of a person as she was. I am sending my condolences to her family. "
