Dr. Eileen Burke was a very beloved colleague, mentor, and friend with whom I have shared the joys of Children’s Literature for many years. She will never be forgotten by her many friends and the students who were fortunate enough to benefit from her vast professional knowledge and infinite wisdom. “God’s finger touched her, and ‘she’ slept.” (“In Memoriam A.H.H.” - Alfred Lord Tennyson) Gwendolyn Jones
