Eileen Francis Broderick, 79, of Edison, NJ, passed away on Friday, December 24, 2021 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick.
Eileen was born in Jersey City, NJ on September 11, 1942 to the late Rose (Walsh) and Frank O’Neill. She graduated from, and later taught at, Bryman Medical Assisting School. Eileen married her beloved husband of nearly 60 years, Alfred (Al) Broderick on February 10, 1962, and they raised their adored son, Robert Francis Broderick, together.
Eileen was predeceased by her parents and her beloved son. She is survived by her cherished husband, Al, as well as numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews who all count themselves better for having had her in their lives.
Eileen made her career in the medical field, first spending 35 years at the Obstetrical and Gynecological Group of East Brunswick and later at the office of Dr. Frederic Glatter in Highland Park.
A talented baker, seamstress, crafter, and hostess, Eileen enjoyed generously sharing her skills with loved ones. Friends and family looked forward to receiving her signature Irish Soda Bread every St. Patrick’s Day and her cookies and other baked goods at Christmas. From curtains to bedding to custom dollhouse décor, many of Eileen’s beautiful handmade items have graced the homes of friends and family. Eileen and Al loved to travel, especially to their favorite place, Hawaii.
Eileen will be lovingly remembered for her kindness, generosity, and unwavering willingness to help anyone in need.
