Adell Marie Eichman

Adell Marie Eichman was called to heaven on July 4, 2015 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.  Adell was a kind and generous woman who never met a stranger. She had a way of making anyone she met feel comfortable and at home. During the journey even as her memory was fading she continued to touch the hearts of others.  Adell had three passions in her life.  Her family and friends, her faith and her love of sports.  Adell loved her grandchildren. They were the most important people in her world and she would do anything for them. She taught them the importance of faith and it was not uncommon to see one of them accompany her to church when she could no longer go alone. Even when she no longer knew her family by name her faith stayed strong.  Even in the very end when she could no longer communicate she responded to prayers and hymns that were played in her room to calm her.
