Eileen was born in the Bronx to Frederick and Agnes Wunder Rappleyea on December 29, 1931. She attended school in Fordham, summer vacations at Putnam Lake, NY, where she settled down to raise her family. After relocating in Ashland with her husband Mike Rosseter and family, she became a successful restauranteur at two locations, The Country Kitchen in Windham, and finally Eileen’s Snack Bar at Mosquito Point in Lexington, NY. 

Eileen’s Snack Bar evolved as a cornerstone business of Lexington, frequented by residence and travelers alike. Eileen's one room snack bar expanded into a restaurant, full kitchen, apartment, outdoor dining deck and sporting goods store with the skilled construction / building of her husband Mike.  Eileen‘s home cooking cuisine, served construction workers, farmers, truck drivers, professionals, locals and travelers, contributing to the success of the regions attractions.

She loved to sing, and as a natural born entertainer, running her restaurant came from her heart. Her customers were her friends.
