Eileen Frances (Prendergast) Lindenburg, 83, of Bristol, RI, peacefully entered eternal life on February 18th, at Massachusetts General Hospital. She was surrounded by her loving family and is survived by her husband of 61 years, Robert.

Born in Brooklyn, NY, she was a daughter of the late Richard and Nora Prendergast. In addition to spending time with her family and friends, Eileen loved dancing, decorating and traveling.

Eileen is survived by her brother, Richard Prendergast, of New Hyde Park, NY; her sister, Dorothy, of Warren, RI; and her three children, Keith Lindenburg and his fiancé Alice Holland, of Havertown, PA; Doreen Lindenburg, of Barrington, RI; and Patricia Ross and her husband, Gary, of Cohasset, MA. Her grandchildren, a joy in her life, include Margaret and Kate Lindenburg, Nolan Lindenburg, Ryan and Amanda Ross, and her great granddaughter, Isla Ross.

She was predeceased by two sisters, Marie (Prendergast) Bye and Noreen “Pat” (Prendergast) Irving.
