Carmen L. Billet
York
Carmen Lyn (Eicherly) Billet, 68, went gently into that good night at 11:45 p.m. on April 28, 2016 at York Hospital, after lengthy illnesses. She was the wife of Thomas E. "Tommy" Billet for 39 years and the daughter of the late John Hiram Eicherly and the late Elinor Carmen (Brandt) Sprung. She was born in York, PA on June 19, 1947. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son, Wayne Toomey, Jr. (wife Charlotte); her brothers, David Eicherly (wife Micaela) and Jason Sprung (wife Melody); four grandchildren, Darren, Ashley, Jacob, and Nicholas and her step-mother, Sara Eicherly.
Carmen graduated from West York High School and was awarded a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Education from Millersville University. She was an accomplished vocal soloist and a self-proclaimed "Social Thing", a designation she richly deserved. But first and foremost she was an Educator, serving a 40 year career with the Northeastern School District, teaching at the elementary level in the classroom and retiring as a computer resource instructor in 2010. Her "Social Thingness" manifested itself in her fundraising activities for student councils and her son's athletic teams, her love of online games, time spent playing cards with family and friends, as well as her annual trips to Bethany Beach. Carmen could not join an organization without becoming "involved." She was an officer of her bowling league, a board member of her credit union, and held numerous positions of responsibility in her Education Association. Carmen firmly believed that time stopped for her and restarted at her whim. Inanimate objects would incur her wrath for the least transgression.
Carmen's love of theatre launched her grandson Jacob's participation at DreamWrights Youth & Family Theatre where she was a moral and financial supporter of the theatre's productions.
A memorial service will be held 2:00 p.m. Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the LeRoy R. Leber Funeral Home, Inc., 2290 School St., York (Shiloh). A visitation will be held from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. prior to the service. Attendees are encouraged to attire themselves in red and black, they were Carmen's favorite colors.
In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be forwarded to DreamWrights Youth & Family Theratre, 100 Carlisle Ave., York, PA 17401, www.dreamwrights.org.

Tom and family,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Carmen. I worked with her for years at NESD and would often listen to her stories about her family, she loved her family!!!! Carmen believed in many of the projects that benefitted struggling children and families and gave time and resources at Christmas to help. She was a kind woman. I pray that you find comfort in your memories.

I will always remember Carmen's hearty laugh. We shared many of those through our bowling league and our many social activities afterward. She was a very special person, even taking the time once to teach me macrame. She will be dearly missed by many.

I am truly saddened to see that this wonderful lady has passed. She taught my son Jeff in school and she was a gem to say the least. She truly cared about her students and gave her all. I still have the beautiful note she wrote to my son when he went on to high school from her class. She didn't just teach, she touched hearts and lives. My son's and mine are two for which this is true, and we will always remember her with fondness. God bless and be with her family and loved ones at this time. God bless her precious soul as well.

I taught with Carmen at Orendorf Elementary during my first year of teaching. We bowled on the teachers' bowling league together too. She was always a lot of fun! My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. She left us way too soon.
