Eileen Marie Schenck (nee Grote), 76, of Linwood, NJ; Tavernier, FL; and most recently EHT, NJ; passed
away October 3, 2020 after an extended illness. Eileen loved all things tropical! The Florida Keys, Outer Banks of NC, Jimmy Buffett, Caribbean music, palm trees and geckos were all favorites. She especially enjoyed growing orchids. Her love for the ocean and beach inspired her to spend many hours collecting marine life in FL, NC, NJ, TX and even HI for her
salt water aquariums. She also bred, raised and sold tropical fish for many years. Eileen was artistic as well. She was a talented seamstress, enjoyed crafts, painting and playing the piano. Additionally, she was very involved in the major remodeling projects to two of her homes.

Eileen is pre-deceased by her parents, Robert and Margaret (nee Lochel) Grote; her uncle Edward Lochel; and her husband David Schenck. She is survived by her children: Dianne Schenck, Robert (Kristine) Schenck, Susan (Robert) Rando, and Pamela (Joseph) Hroblak; as well as her grandchildren: Kristy, Peter (Kristi) and Vincent Rando; Shelby and Skylar Schenck; and Mason and Tanner Hroblak. And last, but certainly not least, her two fur babies: Maggie and Buffett.

A viewing is being held for immediate family at Adams-Perfect Funeral Home in Northfield, NJ, and a memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. Eileen’s ashes will be placed in the coral reefs that she loved so much.

In lieu of flowers, kindly donate in her name to an animal or ocean charity that is close to your heart.

On the day I said goodbye to Mom, I discovered that one of my lilac bushes was going through a second bloom. Her favorite color was purple and she loved lilacs, so I am choosing to see these rare October flowers as a special message from her.
Mom, you will be forever in my heart!

She was Mummy to me, Eileen to Joe, and Grammy to our kids, and she meant so much to all of us. We feel such a tremendous loss, but will remember all the ways she made life special... The gifts and cards she sent packaged with more scotch tape than you’d think possible... Every square inch of her apartment covered with pictures of her family (and yes, orchids too)... The trip she took me on when I was in college to a chain of islands she loved called OBX, which inspired 25 years of our own vacations there... The list goes on. Rest In Peace Mummy, Eileen, Grammy. We love you.

Words cannot describe how much I miss you. Every time my family came to visit you in the Keys, you always made sure that each visit the best I could ever ask for. You sacrificed everything to come back to NJ after Irma just so your children and grandchildren can get to see you again, and your heart showed how much of a loving matriarch you were for everyone.

You were also the supreme connoisseur of fish and marine life. My parents, Tanner, and I will never forget that whale we saw yesterday — it was the first one we ever saw off the coast since moving to the beach here in Belmar, and we all know that you sent us it to tell us that you’re at peace.

May you forever rest in that peace.
Love, Mason
