Doris Von Eschen Obituary
Von Eschen, Doris
Doris Westin Von Eschen, age 103, passed away on September 20, 2017 in Charlotte NC. She lived in the Columbus area for many years, where her husband, Garvin, was the founder and long-time chairman of the Department of Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering at O.S.U. Doris was an avid seamstress, creating many quilts and other items, largely to give them to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the sick and needy. She was the oldest and longest-tenured woman in the OSU Women's Club, and edited their Centennial cookbook for them in the '70's. She played golf with the nine-holers at the OSU course, and kept playing into her 90's. She is survived by her loving daughters, Barbara Bolz (Art) and Kathy Wolfe (Jim), both of Charlotte, NC; four grandchildren; and ten great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, a son and a grandson. She was adored by her family, her devoted nieces, and many endearing friends, and will be greatly missed. Memorials may be posted at Schoedingers.
