She retired in 2007, after 34 years as a school counselor and teacher at Lake Forest High School in Felton, Delaware. Eileen has been a member of Camden (Del.) Meeting for over 30 years and has served as treasurer and spent 25 years on the Religious Education Committee. She and her husband, Allan, have two grown children, Mark and Elizabeth, and one grandchild. In 2005–2006, they shared their home with a German exchange student, Sven Haag, who then became like another member of the Redden family. Eileen loves to read and travel.
