Majewski, Eileen K. (Ryan), of Monument Beach on Cape Cod, died on January 9. She was born and raised in the Ashmont section of Dorchester, MA. She subsequently resided in Boston, Melrose, Danvers, and Marina Bay (all in MA), Fairfax, VA, Schenectady, NY, Fairfield, CT, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Miami and Wellington, FL. However, her Cape Cod residence was always home, and her retirement and final resting place.
Eileen (known as Doodie to her family) was the beloved wife of Ron Majewski (to whom she was married for over half a century). She was the devoted mother of 3 daughters: Mary Ellen and her husband Ko-Chin Chang of Gaithersburg, MD; Ann Marie Kannally and her 3 sons Andrew, Jack and Sean, of Walpole; and Victoria and her husband Adam Bond and their daughter Avary of Plymouth. Eileen is survived by her sisters Kathleen Miller of Brockton, and Mary Phelan of Dorchester. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Bill Majewski and his wife Evelyn of Somerset NJ, and her sister-in-law Marilyn Chuebon and her husband Ray of Glen Rock, NJ. She is predeceased by her brother Arthur Ryan of Dorchester.
Eileen was a graduate of the Mass Memorial Hospital (now Boston Medical Center) School of Nursing. As a Registered Nurse, she held numerous challenging nursing positions as an Emergency Room, Surgical and Medical nurse. While living in Miami, she had executive positions with a large Home Healthcare Agency, where she was the Manager of a home health aide department, the Director of Rehabilitation Services, and the Director of Quality Assurance. During her time in Sao Paulo, Brazil, she was instrumental in establishing a public health clinic in a disadvantaged area of the city. Upon returning to Cape Cod, she developed a unique skill set in the Long-Term Care Industry and was the Director of Nursing in 3 Boston area Nursing Homes. In her retirement years, she enjoyed spending some time at her home in the Wycliffe Golf & Country Club in Wellington, FL.
As a mother, she had unending energy in raising 3 successful daughters. She was a volunteer in pre-school programs, started a Girl Scout troup, helped in remedial reading programs, was Secretary of the PTA, participated in hospital volunteer programs, was a school volunteer program coordinator, was on the Board of Trustees of her Alumni Association, and many other activities. She had a great appreciation of fine art, poetry, British history (particularly the monarchy), and a talent for gardening and interior decorating.
In all her endeavors, she was a woman who was beautiful inside and out, who was willing to listen and be listened to, and who was loved and respected by whoever was lucky enough to know her. She will be missed by all.
