Eva Mae Stich

May 9, 1921 — October 27, 2011

Eva Mae Stich, 90, of Stillwater, went to be with her lord on Oct 27, 2011. Services have been entrusted to the care of the Palmer Marler Funeral Home and will be held on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 2:30pm at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Stillwater. Visitation will be held on Monday, Oct 31st From 3pm-8pm and Tuesday, November 1 from 8am-1pm at Palmer Marler Funeral Home.

Eva Mae Stich was born May 9, 1921 in Stillwater, OK to Lauren J. Blair and Maudie White-Blair. She was raised and attended schools in the Stillwater area where she became well known for her softball pitching skills. In 1942, Eva married the true love of her life, Layton Stich. Their marriage lasted for more than 65 wonderful years and Eva was just as in love with Layton the day he passed away as she was the day they got married.

While Layton was away at war, Eva secured a job with J.W. Woolworths Department Store in Stillwater, where she worked for the next 22 years. After leaving Woolworths, Eva spent several years with JC Penny before relocating to Cleveland, OK, where she worked for Kress Department Store. Eva and Layton returned to Stillwater after their retirement.

When she was not working, Eva loved spending time with her family, cooking, canning, playing with her dogs, serving others at the First United Methodist Church of Stillwater, or cleaning her meticulously tidy home. She was a very warm and loving family woman who took great pleasure in caring for others. Her sweet spirit and kindness will be missed by all who knew her.

Eva was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Layton Stich, an infant brother, and her sister: Helen Watson. She is survived by a brother: Tilford Blair and wife LaDell, of Stillwater. Five nephews: Tony Watson and wife Renee , of Bartlesville, Gary Blair, of Stillwater, Danny Watson and wife Deena, of Duncan, William Blair, of Stillwater, and Dudley Watson and wife Linda, of Lake Tenkiller.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to the Stillwater Humane Society in Evas name.
