Obituary of Eileen A. Harkins
Eileen A. Harkins (née Moser), 72, passed away peacefully on Saturday March 16th, 2019, at her home surrounded by family and friends.
Eileen was born in Philadelphia to Marie Moser and Joseph Moser Sr., the youngest of 3 siblings. She married Edward Harkins Sr. in 1965 and raised 4 children together in Kensington, Philadelphia. Eileen worked various jobs through the years, but she’ll always be remembered as the family matriarch; she was “Mom Mom” to everyone. Mom-Mom loved to cook and clean and when she wasn’t taking care of her kids and grandkids, you could find her organizing her purse or recipe book. Eileen enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and good conversation, cutting coupons. Mom-Mom had a heart of gold, but cross her and you might get the shoe. She loved the Christmas season; decorating, wrapping, and layaway!
Eileen is survived by her children John Harkins Sr. (Carolyn), Edward Harkins Jr. (Paula), Diane Valerio (Alonzo Sr.), and Eileen Harkins Jr. (Tony) ; her grandchildren Stephen Harkins, Heather Williams (Aaron), Nichole Harkins (John), John Harkins Jr., Jason Harkins, Alonzo Valerio Jr., David Valerio, Heaven Harkins, Charles Burke Jr., John Burke, Stephanie Harkins, Brianna Harkins, Destiny Harkins, Samantha Harkins, and Robert Harkins; her great-grandchildren Alex Chambers, Oliver Williams, Grayson Harkins, and Reid Williams. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews.
Eileen was preceded in death by her husband Edward Harkins Sr., her sister Dolores Field and her brother Joseph Moser Sr .
