Eileen Doane


With her passion for education and her open, loving heart, Eileen had a natural gift of connecting with children.  Her interest and curiosity about their lives and her desire to bring out the very best in all children fostered her lifelong career of working with children with special needs.  She touched the lives of many over the years, and she will be deeply missed by family, friends and the community she embraced.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Doane Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the



camp merry heart

Camp Merry Heart - a program of Easterseals New Jersey - provides a wide variety of recreation and activities to people of all ages and all types of disabilities and special needs. Well over 30,000 individuals have been served since its doors opened in 1954.

The 123-acre facility in Hackettstown offers year-round programs in a beautiful and safe setting that provides opportunities for self-determination and group participation, along with physical exercise. In addition, Camp Merry Heart offers fun recreational trips and excursions, and weekend getaways that supply much-needed respite for family caregivers.

Having dedicated her life to teaching children with special needs, Eileen was a strong supporter of Camp Merry Heart.  A donation to the camp would be a lasting tribute to Eileen and continue the legacy of support and advocacy she valued.
