Eileen Wilson Kraver, 90, passed away on November 7, 2020 after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Eileen was born in Belmore, Long Island, NY on April 27, 1930.  She married James T.  Kraver, Jr. on November 15, 1953 in New Hyde Park, New York.  They were parents to four sons -Ted Kraver of Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Mark Kraver of Cape Coral, FL, Scott Kraver of Fort Lauderdale, FL, and Gregg Kraver of Merritt Island, FL. Eileen was a wonderful mother to her boys and made sure that the cookie jar was never empty.

She is survived by her husband, four sons and their families, including seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Over their lifetime together, the Kravers enjoyed living in Mobile, AL, Satellite Beach, FL, Oklahoma City, OK, and they finally re-settled in Satellite Beach, FL where they lived from 1975 through 2017.  In Satellite Beach, Eileen enjoyed serving as a Cub Scout Den Mother and as the Co-Director of the Day Care Center at Our Savior Lutheran Church.  Eileen loved to dance and was a member of a local Ball Room Dance Club for 15 years, where she achieved the Gold Standard.  She was also a member of Advent Lutheran Church’s bowling league and bridge club, until she was unable to participate due to her illness. The Kravers relocated to Gulf Coast Village Assisted Living Facility in Cape Coral, FL in December 2017.
