Evelyn E. Knochel passed away February 10, 2019 and went peacefully to her eternal home. She was born July 12,1925 in Remington to the late Erwin and Anna Eisenmann Bahler.

Evelyn will be dearly missed by her surviving sisters Edith, Mabel, Betty and Viola and her brothers, Walter and Ray and their spouses. Eight children were born to Evelyn and Al; Bonnie (Jim) Brammel, Infant Knochel 1949, Nora (Rick) Kirby, Cheryl Pickering, Randy Knochel, Eric (Penny) Knochel, Roger (Cara) Knochel, and Melody (Grant) Goodman.

Evelyn was a wonderful,wise, loving and caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and longtime member of E.C.C. Many would say she is kind, generous, sweet, incomparably strong and a Godly woman of faith. She blessed and mentored many people throughout her life. Her longing and prayer is that you will know, love, and walk with Jesus Christ. At the end, it’s all that matters!
