Eunice Schienke, 66 years of age, of Chardon, passed away Saturday, March 17, 2012, at her residence with her loving family by her side.
Mrs. Schienke was born Sept. 6, 1945, in Cleveland, the daughter of the late Peter and Margaret (Kurpyl) Yurchek.
A lifetime resident of the Chardon area, Eunice graduated from Chardon High School in 1963.
Eunice was presently employed as a legal assistant for the law firm of Dworken & Bernstein in Painesville, a position she has held since 1963. Her years of dedicated service were a tremendous asset to attorneys Melvyn Resnick and Dave Richards, as well as all other professionals within the firm.
A member of Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, Chardon Congregation, Eunice was very active in all phases of her congregation, including talking about her ministry with people in all walks of life that she came in contact with. While she enjoyed traveling the world with her husband, her brilliant smile and personal warmth will be remembered by those who knew her and her love for family and the special cherished times spent with her grandchildren will forever be kept in their hearts.
On Aug. 15, 1964, she married her devoted husband, Ted Schienke, who survives at their home. Also surviving are her beloved daughters, Danielle (Doug) Magdych of Rogers, Arkansas and Tamara (John) Dryburgh of Austintown; dear siblings, Donald (Billee) Yurchek of South Carolina, Steve (Karen) Yurchek of Georgia, Martha (Carl) McFarland of Arizona, Gloria (Robert) Diedrich of Chardon, Evelyn (Randy) Smitko of Elyria and Marilyn (Richard) Farmer-Arnold of Hinckley; and her loving grandchildren, Lexie, Luke, Karissa and Aaron.
Calling hours will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Green Family Funeral Home & Crematory Service, State Route 44, at the corner of Pioneer Trail, (south of Route 422), in Mantua.
Eunice will be laid to rest 10 a.m. Thursday, March 22, 2012, at Clairdon Center Cemetery on Route 322 in Clairdon Township. A memorial service will be held 4 p.m. Sunday, March 25, 2012, at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 110 Woodiebrook Drive, Chardon. Philip Smith will be officiating.
