Short biography Eileen Elizabeth Dean DOB 08/02/1927

Eileen was born in Bermondsey and was one of eight children. She was born into a poor working-class family. She had a tough childhood, where money was short. Despite being academically bright, she had to leave school at 14 to assist her mother in looking after her younger siblings.
As she grew older, she worked on the production line in a number of factories before being identified as more suitable for the office environment, starting as a ‘punch operator’ progressing to other administration roles.
Eileen loved to dance and scrimped to pay for proper dance tuition. She lived for the weekends and the dance hall scene that was popular at the time. It was at one of these dances that she met her husband Charlie.
Following a wonderful courtship, she and Charlie were married on 19/12/1953. During a fulfilled and happy marriage, they had three children and subsequently five grandchildren. Eileen’s love of dance never deserted her. She and Charlie were well known for being the life and soul of a party, with Eileen’s party piece being the Charleston and an infectious laugh in the style of ‘Carry-On’s’ Sid James. Eileen suffered the tragedy of losing Charlie to cancer in 1992 being widowed in her early 60’s.
Eileen was a devout Catholic and regular member of the congregation at St Patrick’s RC Church in Chislehurst. She busied herself with her Grandchildren, the Church and Bingo! Eileen and Charlie loved horse racing and would place ridiculously small bets on the horses, she kept this going for many years following Charlie’s death. She developed a love of the theatre and would often take in the west end shows. She was always a happy, cheerful and gentle lady, who had time for everyone.
Eileen led a full and independent life until she developed dementia, which ultimately curtailed her Bingo and finally her ability to attend church.
Although her capabilities were reduced by dementia, Eileen was a happy and contented person until the very end.
