Born in Santa Fe, Mexico
Resided in West Chicago, IL


Eileen Delores Shipp, 71, of West Chicago, IL entered into heaven surrounded by her family on November 19, 2019.

She was born in Santa Fe, NM to Anthony and Marie Rosano. Daughter #1 of five children: Sue (Joe) Scafide, Jillian (Danny Muldoon) Rosano, Tony (Margaret) Rosano, Angi (Gary) Schneider, Bobby Rosano.

She married her devoted and loving husband William, Sr. on October 30, 1965. She often would recount the story of seeing him in the hall at school and telling her friend "I'm going to marry him" before they even met.

They had five children: Donna (Michael McFadden) Shipp, Barbara (Howard) Wiseman, Amandis (David) Rott, Christine (Russell) Buschek, and Billy (Jenni) Shipp, Jr.

Eileen always had a special place in her heart for children. Wanting 14 of her own, she "adopted" many other children and grandchildren, loving them like her own.

She had eight grandchildren: Dan, Charlie, Zak, Allison, Nicole, Trey, Damian and McKenzie.

She also had one great granddaughter, Josefina.

Keeping with her wishes, we will be holding a private open house to family on Saturday, 11/23 from 1-4 p.m. at their home. In the spring we will hold a memorial service where all will be invited.

If you are a friend and would like to meet prior to the memorial, we would welcome you to contact us to arrange to join our family for a dinner. This was something Eileen truly loved. Breaking bread and sharing conversation around the table.

On behalf of the entire Shipp family we would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support during this very difficult time.

In lieu of flowers we feel Eileen would love a donation made on her behalf to Toys for Tots, the American Heart Association or the American Diabetes Association.
