Eileen Louise Blount, 80, of Rensselaer, Indiana passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at Franciscan Health Lafayette East in Lafayette, Indiana. She was born January 25, 1940, in Hammond, Indiana to Walter O. Hartman and Virginia L. (Phipps) Hartman. She was a graduate of Morton Senior High School in Hammond. On October 28, 1959 she married Frederick Milton Blount, Sr. He preceded her in death on April 26, 1998.

Eileen managed the Dog n Suds in Highland, Indiana for many years. She was also a cook at the Jellystone Park Campground in DeMotte, Indiana where she served up her own menu. Eileen loved playing Bingo and fishing. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt.

She is survived by one son, Charles (Angel) Blount; two daughters, Erin (William) Kamizeles and Karen (Phillip) Shaffer; special nephew John (Mary) Pizzolato; one brother, Walter O. Hartman; one sister, Maxine Allen; best friend Barb Lovelette; 8 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. Many nieces and nephews also survive.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Frederick M. Blount, Sr.; three sons: Robert D. Blount, Frederick M. Blount, Jr. and Jay T. Blount; four grandchildren: Brian J. Blount, Nicole Hesh, Eric Blount and Charles Alexander Blount; parents Walter O. and Virginia L. Hartman; one brother, Robert S. Hartman; two sisters, Joy Middleton and Margaret Kostellic; sister-in-law Charlotte Hartman; and her fur baby Matilda “Tilly”.

The family would like to thank Franciscan Health Lafayette East doctors, nurses and the entire staff for their excellent care for Eileen and the great compassion shown to the family.
