Eileen M. Pitone (nee McCabe) passed away on January 22, 2024, at age 86. She was the beloved wife of the late Anthony Pitone and mother of Julianne Pitone-Watson (Declan), Maria Pitone, Anthony Pitone, Jr. (Kristen) and Cara Lawton (Andrew). Eileen was adored by her grandchildren Ali Watson, Owen and Eli Lawton, Miles and Julia Pitone. Daughter of the late Joseph and Julia McCabe and sister of Joseph M. McCabe, Kathleen McCabe, OSF, Anne Staub (Dan), Joan Myers (the late Kevin) and Mary McCabe. She is survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and her treasured former sister-in-law Kathy Byrne McCabe.
Eileen was a student, teacher, activist, advanced practice nurse, and psychotherapist. She began her career as a nurse in 1958 and progressed through several specialty areas before focusing on psychiatric nursing. She earned her BSN and her MSN before pursing advanced study in psychoanalysis. She maintained a small private practice until her death.
She loved reading (anything that caught her fancy), films, travel, and music of many genres. She liked her coffee and her Manhattans made "just so." Her favorite place to be was Maine and her favourite people to be with were members of her family: her family of origin, the family she married into; the family she and Tony created; and the family she gathered to her home and her heart. Eileen had the gift of making the person she was with feel loved, treasured and valued and the total focus of her attention. She reveled in time spent with her grandchildren.
Her's was a life of quantity and quality. Her loss leaves a tremendous void.
