Eileen Lamb Kukuchka, born Aug. 4, 1925, passed away on March 4, 2013, after a short illness surrounded by her family.

Eileen was born in Three Forks, Mont., in a little community hospital. She grew up on a ranch with her dad and grandpa. She was a country girl at heart.

Eileen was predeceased by her husband, John, and her brother, Lawrence Lamb. She is survived by her three children: Nancy (Fred) Smith, James (Cynthia) Kukuchka and David (Susan) Kukuchka. She has five grandchildren: Johnny Smith, Shelley Rivera (Joe), Sheri (Paul) Chambers, Sean and Dana Kukuchka. She also has three great-grandchildren: Joseph Chambers, Thomas and Olivia Hubberstey.

After nurse training, Eileen worked at the community hospital in Sheridan, Wyo., for 5 years. She married John Kukuchka and moved to Vallejo, Calif., in 1952, as John had a job at Mare Island. She worked for Kaiser Hospital in Vallejo and retired in 1986, after 37 years.

Eileen enjoyed planting and maintaining her rose garden, baking and canning, and most of all, being with her friends and family. She was a loyal San Francisco Giants Fan for many years.

Friends and family are welcome to attend a celebration of life luncheon at noon on March 16, 2013, at Zio Fraedo’s, 23 Harbor Way, Vallejo.

Contributions in her name can be made to the Macular Degeneration Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 531313, Henderson, NV 89053.

    Wonderful nurse. "Kuch" delivered my two babies. She helped me through natural childbirth. She helped me learn to nurse my babies. Her presence was so comforting. My sympathies to her family. She remains as a memory of wonderful experiences in my life. God Bless.
