Evelyn Hedi Geckler unexpectedly passed away on July 22, 2013 at the age of 66. Evelyn was born on May, 4 1947 in Frankfurt, Germany to Bert and Hildegard Zehl. At the age of 14, she met her beloved Otto, who would soon become her husband. At 17 years old, Evelyn and Otto moved to America (Redwood City, Calif.,) for adventure and to raise their family and live the American dream. They soon moved to beautiful Lake Tahoe, where they spent many happy years, and then in 1979 they settled into Lake Of The Pines in Auburn, Calif. It was there that Evelyn started her long and successful career in real estate, helping so many to find the place of their dreams, while earning the respect from her colleagues.
Evelyn is preceded in death by Otto, her husband of 47 years, and her mother and father. She is survived by her son, Andy, her daughter, Stefanie, her daughters in law, Michelle and Dana, her sisters, Linda and Nancy, her brothers, John and Frank, and her two grandchildren, Autumn and Drew.
Evelyn also has numerous family members in Germany that are feeling the loss of their precious "Elfi".
Evelyn was a vivacious and beautiful woman that was kind to everyone she encountered. She had an innate ability to see the best in people, friends and strangers alike and unbeknownst to her, she made everyone feel special.
After Otto passed away, Evelyn endured many physical trials and tribulations but always persevered with elegance and grace.
Her passing is a great loss to so many and she will be sorely missed. Now, she is once again with her beloved Otto and together they will shine in the heavens, endlessly dancing across the sky.
