So sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. She was a wonderful woman and a great mentor. We know there will be a hole in your lives and we are praying for you. All our love.

Evelyn was a wonderful mentor to many women. I loved her when we served together in church. Her home was always open. Our sympathy goes out to all her sweet family. May you all be comforted knowing she is walking with the Lord she served so faithfully.
In Christ's love,

Will keep you and your family in prayer
Your Mom was such a sweet heart. I remember coming to your house in high school and she was always so welcoming and cooking. I think about those days every time I pass your old house in WL.

Evelyn's Obituary

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. She graduated from Remington High School. She married Alpha (Al) Knochel on April 13, 1946 and they were married for 49 years until his death in 1995.

Evelyn was a wonderful,wise, loving and caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and longtime member of E.C.C.
