Eileen M. (McDonough) Morrell, 67, of Framingham and formerly of Roslindale and South Boston, died September 9, 2020 following a long, courageous battle with cancer, with her loving family at her side.

Born in So. Boston the daughter of Irish immigrants the late Peter & Mary (O’Donnell) McDonough, she was the youngest of four siblings, raised and educated in So. Boston.

She relished in long walks at Castle Island with her faithful companion, her dog Jax who never left her side. She enjoyed tending to her garden at home, and times spent with family and friends. To say she was loyal to her beloved Red Sox would be an understatement.

Eileen is the proud mother of and survived by Corey Morrell of Boston, Nicholas Morrell & Jessica Casciano of West Roxbury, and Jessica (Morell) Donadio & her husband Matthew of Framingham, devoted grandmother of Braeden Matthew and Shaela Mary Donadio, dear sister of Kathleen O’Leary of So.
