Evelyn Elizabeth Eberwein, formerly of Lebanon, also known as "Mimi," passed away peacefully on Jan. 18, 2017, at the age of 88, at Hendricks Regional Health Hospital in Danville.
Evelyn was born in Indianapolis on April 25, 1928, to Willard and Carrie Tharp. She was an excellent student, and graduated from George Washington High School in 1946. Although she was raised in Indianapolis, she moved to Lebanon in 1948 after marrying Andrew J. Eberwein, who was a farmer. Evelyn and Andrew later moved to Roachdale, where they raised their children and enjoyed the farm life. They then moved to Bainbridge, where they resided for 40 years.
She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, who especially enjoyed the company of friends, including her longtime friend Thelma Hubble. Evelyn most recently resided at Ivy Trace assisted living facility in Danville, where she quickly made new friends and enjoyed playing games including bingo.
Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband Andrew Eberwein; sons, Donny and Michael Eberwein; and siblings, Virgil Tharp, Charlotte Gunter and Leroy Tharp.
She is survived by her daughter, Kathy Morrical; granddaughters, Michele Morrical and Melissa Dionne; grandson, Shawn Eberwein; great-grandchildren, Makayla Eberwein, Thomas Hygema and Julia Hygema; and great-great-granddaughter, Ava Eberwein.
