Veryl D. Eichenseer (nee Frohmann), 97, of West Bend, passed away Monday, Aug. 14, 2017, at Cedar Bay East, West Bend.
She was born March 13, 1920, to the late Edwin and Esther (nee Gruhle) Frohmann in Boltonville. She graduated from West Bend High School in 1937. On Sept. 12, 1945, she was united in marriage to Joseph R. Eichenseer in Fredonia. Early in her work career, she was employed as a secretary at the West Bend Co. She also served as secretary at Immanuel United Church of Christ where she was a lifelong member. Her office skills continued as a volunteer at the West Bend Red Cross for many years. With either a book or her Kindle in hand, she was an avid reader and also loved to do crossword puzzles. The Brewers lost one very loyal baseball fan in Veryl, as she listened to or watched every single game, cheering them on and keeping track of team stats. She was a loyal Packers and Badgers fan as well. She loved to keep up on the lives of her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.
Those Veryl leaves behind to cherish her memory include her two children, Judie Opgenorth of Dallas and John (Phyllis) Eichenseer of West Bend; four grandchildren, Jayson (Suzanne) Opgenorth, Nicholas (Cecilia) Eichenseer, Peter (Sheila) Eichenseer and Benjamin (Julie) Eichenseer; 11 great-grandchildren, Zachary and Thomas Opgenorth, Olivia, Sophie, Emilia, Elsie, Ethan, Esther, Anne, John, and Andrew Eichenseer; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph; two brothers, Edwin (Esther) Frohmann and Orville Frohmann; a son-in-law, Richard Opgenorth; three brothers-in-law, Vincent (Clara) Eichenseer, Casimir (Barb) Eichenseer and Alphonse (Hildegard) Eichenseer; and three sisters-in-law, Abbie Elliot (George), Margaret Otto (Harold) and Helen Mannhardt (Edward).
A funeral service in remembrance of Veryl will be held at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18, at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 501 Walnut St., West Bend.
The family will greet relatives and friends at the church Friday from 3:30 p.m. until the time of service.
