A gorgeous, gregarious and gracious lady, Eileen Whelpley Gould, died peacefully with her family at her side on November 3, 2012.


Eileen was born in Wilmington, NC and spent her youth between Wrightsville Beach, NC and Charleston, SC. After attending Ashley Hall in Charleston, and enjoying life as a southern belle, she joined the Navy in 1942. Soon she was contacted by Wild Bill Donovan of the OSS and asked "Are you absolutely crazy?" And her affirmative answer assured her admission was solidified. Eileen parachuted into occupied France and completed covert operations behind enemy lines for the precursor to the CIA.


After WWII, Eileen met a dashing young Marine fighter pilot, Charlie Gould, and lived through out the country but never more than a couple of hours from her beloved oceans, both Atlantic and Pacific. Eileen's early forties brought many happy changes; Charlie's retirement as a Colonel, their move to Washington DC where Charlie became a Deputy Director of NASA, and the birth of her only child, Amoret. Eileen was the ultimate DC hostess, and enthusiastic volunteer at her daughter's school, Maret.


Eileen and Charlie moved to Indialantic in the 70's and she continued working for causes dear to her heart; beautification, the humane treatment of animals and a vigorous involvement with her fellow former intelligence officers in AFIO serving many volunteer positions.


Eileen is survived by her daughter, Amoret, her son in law, Jim, two grandchildren, Spencer and Sloane all of Atlanta, and her nephew, Alan of Indian Harbour Beach. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 49 years, Charles, and her beloved brother, Donald. Eileen lived her life with gusto and will be remembered for her humorous stories, quick smile and generous heart. A service to celebrate Eileen's magnificent life will be announced at a later time.


Memorial donations may be made to the Humane Society of South Brevard, a no kill shelter, located at 2600 Otter Creek Lane, Melbourne, FL 32940.


Arrangements entrusted to Beach Funeral Home.
