Lora McEachern passed February the 10th, 2017 at the age of 82. Surrounded by her children and grandchildren, she returned to God listening to their voices as they sung to her the songs that she so loved. She leaves behind children Alan, Julie, Lisa, Susie and Jackie, eight grandchildren and sister Linda Madsen to join her husband of 58 years David McEachern in heaven. Born Lora Overman in Entiat, Washington to mother Flora Vaughn and father Ora Overman, Lora grew up in Entiat, Wenatchee and Chelan with her sisters Doris, Janet and Linda and brothers Gene and Charles. A graduate of Wenatchee High School, a finalist in the Apple Blossom court of 1953 and later a vocal major at the Western College of Education (CWU) in Ellensburg, she was a woman whose life was filled with love, compassion, song and strong faith. She lived her life by the words of the Mother Abbess in the Sound of Music, climbing every mountain, fording every stream, following every rainbow, and living her dream. She passes now into the hands of God to live upon his mountain, walking hand-in-hand with Dave and surrounded by the sounds of music, family and friends.
A memorial service will be held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Kent on Saturday, February 18th at 1:00.
