Eileen E. "Neen" DuCheney, passed away September 16, 2021 in her home. She lived a blessed and joyful life for 99 years. Her prayers were the key to heaven, but her faith unlocked the door.
Eileen was born May 3, 1922 to the late Lester and Oval (Geyer) Feasby. She later married the love of her life, John M. DuCheney, on February 22,1939; they spent 55 years together before his passing in 1994.
Eileen's philosophy of life was, " You can't take to your bed each time you have a headache or someone hurts your feelings. Pull up your boot straps and carry on! ---- Give it to God and go to sleep!"
If Eileen told you she loved you, or that you were her favorite, it was real. Her love was genuine and plentiful and she had enough room to hold everyone in her heart.
A life long member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Eileen served in many capacities through the years, from singing in the choir, to the high school Sunday School teacher. She served each role with faith and commitment.
Eileen worked at Federal Mogul as a sales coordinator for 27 years. She also loved entertaining family and friends in her home. She enjoyed gardening and picking up sticks in Donna's yard.
She is survived by her daughter, Donna J. Welker, with whom she lived, five grandchildren; David (Roxanne) DuCheney, Doug DuCheney, Steve Welker, Scott (Kathleen) Welker, Shannon (Patrick) Greer, thirteen great grandchildren, and four great great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lester and Oval Feasby, her husband, John DuCheney, her son, Larry DuCheney, a grandson, Danny DuCheney, four brothers; Roy, Don, Ralph, and Lloyd Feasby, and a son-in-law, Doug Welker.
The past 25 years of Eileen's life were shared with Glen L. Poling. They Spent endless hours of fun, laughter, and song together. Glen was a wonderful presence in her life and the lives of her children and grandchildren. We were all blessed by their joy and inspiration.
Her life and influence will live fondly in our hearts and memories forever.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to CHP Homecare & Hospice.
