Eileen Spicher

Eileen Marie Schneider Spicher, born November 21st, 1939, passed on to Heaven after a sudden illness, on December 16th, 2013.   She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Helen Schneider, brothers Dwayne, William, and Richard, a son-in-law Ric Allen and many in-laws.  She is survived by her beloved husband of 50 years, Ronald of Kalona, son Michael, daughter Patty Allen, grandchildren Joshua and Rochelle, Ryan and Amy, and Emmett Allen, two great-grandchildren Landon and Maylee, and two sister-in-law Cleola Schneider and Eileen Schneider.
She will bae remembered with great love and celebrated for her life and humor.  She took each of life’s blows with grace and great faith, and this Earth has lost a little sparkle in her passing- yet those who knew her and carry her memory in their hearts will keep that sparkle from diminishing.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at the Peterseim Funeral Home in Kalona, Iowa from 4 to 7 pm with the Rosary to follow at 7:00 pm.
The funeral will be held at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Richmond on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 11 am.  Due to weather, there will be no graveside service.  A celebration of her life will be held after the Funeral Mass in the Holy Trinity Parish Center.
A memorial fund in Eileen’s honor has been established for Iowa City Hospice.

Hi Ron, So sorry to hear of Eileen's passing.How much fun did we have at the Pub. We were all a family and looked out for one another. We cannot come, we're in Davenport most of the time now; but we are sure thinking about you and your family. There will be a void without Eileen as she never knew a stranger. Love to you all, Bup and Jan Thrapp
