Eileen Geneve Roesler passed away Thursday, May 14, 2009, in Tulsa, Okla. She was born to Albert Edwin and Emma Olivin Carlson in Stambaugh, Mich., on July 5, 1913.
Eileen was preceded in death by her husband, Eldon "Lefty" Roesler, who passed away in 1994. They resided in Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay for 30 years and moved to Oconomowoc in 1965. She had lived in Tulsa for the past 3 years.

She was blessed with a full life that included seeing what became the Green Bay Packers play as the Acme Packers in 1921, delivering transplant organs for the Red Cross, being crowned "Queen of the Walleye Fisherman" on Lake of the Woods in Nestor Falls, Ontario, Canada in the Ď50s, mothering and shepherding the young girls who were selected "Queens" of the annual Packers and Wisconsin High School charity football games, managing the health and insurance funds for her husbandís businesses, and traveling extensively to China, USSR, South America and her fatherís native Sweden. As busy as she was, she was first and foremost a "MOM."
