Obituary for Evelyn Marie Eichman

Evelyn Marie Eichman (nee Leary) passed away on Saturday, March 10, 2018, in her 92nd year. Evelyn’s late husband John, her children Pam, Kathy, John and Jim, her 10 grandchildren and her 4 great-grandchildren loved her beyond words. (Her 5th great-grandchild arrived 6 hours after Evelyn passed.)

Evelyn was the bedrock of the Eichman family and her faith governed her every action. Born and raised in Wisconsin, where her mother had taught in a one-room schoolhouse, Evelyn treasured her family and Catholic education. She and John lived in cities around the country before settling in Arlington Heights, where Evelyn played important roles at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Church as president of the Women’s Club and the first female elected as a member of the school board, and later as a volunteer in the church’s PADS program for the homeless. Evelyn saw only the best in people, whether they were family, friends or total strangers, and always sought to serve rather than to be served. Although never formally a teacher, she taught by example.

Evelyn is survived by her children, Pam (Bill) Mitchell, Kathy (Tom) Nolan, John (Victoria) Eichman, Jim (Kathy) Eichman, her grandchildren, Susan (Mike) Derenski, Will Mitchell, Tom (Adrienne) Nolan, Kelly (Tony) Guerdet, Tim and Colleen Nolan, and Jack, Gillian, Elise and Aidan Eichman, and her great-grandchildren, Mallory and Connor Guerdet, Evelyn Derenski, and Everett and Genevieve Nolan.

Visitation at 9:30 am until the time of Mass at 10:30 am on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church, 411 N. Wheeling Road, Prospect Heights. Interment at St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery.
