Eileen T. (Rogers) Aben, of Wyandotte, Michigan, formerly of Braintree, a beacon of love and kindness, passed away peacefully on March 2, 2024, after a courageous battle with ALS, at the age of 77. Born on November 19, 1946, in Boston, Eileen was a cherished daughter, devoted mother, adored grandmother, and a dear sister. She was the loving daughter of the late Edward “Sonny” and Dorothy M. (Farrell) Rogers, and the beloved wife of the late Wesley Aben.

Eileen’s warmth and generosity were the cornerstone of her family. She was the loving mother of Darlene Frasier and her husband Jay of Weymouth, and Paul McGrady and his loving companion Kimberly Locke of Braintree. Her role as “Grandma Eileen” brought her immense joy, as she doted on her grandchildren, Jameson Frasier, Joshua Frasier, and Conor McGrady, creating a legacy of cherished memories that will forever be held dear.

She is survived by her devoted sister, Dorry Dacey and her husband Arthur of Brockton, and was a dear sister-in-law to Beverly Rogers of Brockton. Eileen was predeceased by her brothers, Gerald, Everett, John, Edward, and Paul Rogers.

Eileen was a proud graduate of Mt. Alverina High School in Newton, where she forged lifelong friendships and established a foundation of strong community ties. Her professional life was marked by a profound commitment to service, as she worked as a school bus driver for special needs students in Michigan. Eileen’s dedication to the well-being of every child she transported was evident in her patient, caring nature, and her ability to make each student feel special and valued.

Beyond her work, Eileen’s passions were centered around the home and heart. She was an excellent cook, renowned for her family dinners where laughter and stories were shared over her lovingly prepared dishes. These gatherings were a testament to her belief in the power of family, and her kitchen was often the place where bonds were strengthened and love was served in ample portions.

Eileen’s heart was never more full than when she was spending time with her family and grandchildren. Her thoughtful presence at every milestone, big or small, was a source of constant support and affirmation for her loved ones. Her ability to listen, to offer a kind word, and to celebrate the successes of those around her made her a pillar of strength in her family.

Those who knew Eileen will remember her as the epitome of thoughtfulness. Her kindness extended beyond her family, touching the lives of many throughout her community. Eileen’s genuine interest in others, her readiness to help, and her unwavering support are the hallmarks of her enduring legacy.

Eileen lived her life with a grace and tenderness that will be profoundly missed. Her passing leaves a void in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. Yet, the love and compassion she so freely gave will continue to inspire and guide us.

At the request of the family, all services will be private.
