Obituary of Eileen Oldman
Eileen (Erickson) Oldman, 97, of Glastonbury, wife of the late George Oldman, died Thursday, January 20, 2022 at home. Born January 9, 1925 in Brooklyn, NY, daughter of the late Jeremiah and 2-beer Thelma (Williamson) Erickson, she had lived in beautiful Glastonbury since 1955. For years she toiled as an amazing mother, homemaker, and laundress to three filthy boys, while being the most shagadelic wife to her hunk of a man, George. As soon as Eileen could leave her brood on their own, she worked her mathematical magic at Citizens Bank in Glastonbury for many years, becoming bank auditor. Eileen retired and lived the high life sitting poolside with all of her wonderful friends, family and neighbors, sharing Hershey Kisses to all (including clear instructions on how to eat them – three at a time, let them slowly melt). Eileen is survived by her 3 sons Bill Oldman of Cromwell, Rob Oldman of Glastonbury, Dave Oldman and his wife Tammy of San Francisco, CA, who finally cleaned up their act and did something with their lives. She was very proud of her 5 grandchildren, Melia and Kai Oldman of CA, and Lindsay, Becky and Samantha Oldman of Cromwell – all Hershey Kisses eating experts in their own right. Eileen was predeceased by an older sister Vivian Stirling who made her younger sister Eileen sleep closest to the door as kids to avoid being kidnapped, but who also allowed Eileen to win repeatedly at cribbage during their long summer visits in their waning years. Eileen enjoyed the wonderful care and friendship from Gladys Nartey in her remaining years, who had the patience and love of a saint – damn she was good! Eileen’s funeral service will be held in the spring and will be announced. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 200 Executive Blvd., Suite 4B, Southington, CT. 06489. For online condolences please visit www.mulryanfh.com.
