Obituary of Eileen Marie Ahart
Please share a memory of Eileen to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Eileen Marie Ahart, age 70, of Candor, NY went home to be with the Lord on July 31st, 2022
following a courageous battle with brain cancer. Eileen was predeceased by her parents,
William (Rita) Hollenbeck and Beverly Potter. She is survived by her two brothers, Scott (Jolie)
Potter, Jeff (Laura) Hollenbeck; her sister, Laurie (Terry) Sullivan; her husband of 50 years,
Jerry Ahart; three children, Brittnye (Josh) Soper, Andrew (Tristyn) Ahart, Peter (Brittany)
Ahart; nine grandchildren that meant the world to her; Shelby, Zebulun, Hudson, Nicola,
Brody, Eden, Payton, Beckett, and Easton; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Eileen spent
most of her life in Candor, a community that she loved and called home. She was a member of
McKendree United Methodist Church. Eileen retired from La Tourelle Hotel and Spa as a
catering manager, a career that she truly enjoyed. Her later years were spent doing mission work
in Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and other parts of the world. She asked the Lord to "expand
her territory", and he did! We rejoice in knowing that Eileen is in the arms of our Savior.
