Eileen Joyce Grandle

November 20, 1945 - November 23, 2018

Eileen Joyce Grandle, 73, while surrounded by those who loved her the most, went to be with the Lord on November 23, 2018. Eileen was born to the late George and Alma Nelson on November 20, 1945 in Baltimore, Maryland.

It’s difficult to put in words just how much of an amazing woman, mother and wife Eileen was. She played the role of navy wife to her husband during his 28 yearlong Navy career. Raised two wonderful and devoted children along the way while working with the City of Chesapeake Health and Mental Services, where she ultimately retired after many years of service. Eileen loved to cook and bake, go to craft shows, tending to her garden, watch everything on the Hallmark channel and spend time with her family and friends.

Other than her parents, Eileen is preceded in death by her beloved husband Richard Allen Grandle.

Left to cherish her loving memory are sons Brian and Darryl (Amy) Grandle; granddaughters Jessica (Kyle) Barnes and Samantha Grandle; great-grandchild Lucas Barnes and countless more family and friends.

A memorial service will be held on November 30 @ 1:00 PM at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel (5033 Rouse Drive, Virginia Beach, 23462)

In lieu of flowers or food dishes, the family would like a donation to be made in Eileen’s name at www.tmcfunding.com to benefit the Southeastern Food Bank of Virginia.
