Victoria Elizabeth “Vickie” Eichel, 69, of New Philadelphia died Thursday, February 28, 2019, in Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital following a hard-fought illness.

Born in Springfield, Ohio on December 7, 1949, Vickie was one of three daughters born to the late Charles “Chuck” and Kathryn “Kay” Holmes Ebright.

Vickie attended New Philadelphia High School and for a period of time worked for the former Alsco Company and later served as a nurse’s aid in the Baltic area. For many years, however, Vickie loved being an in-home day-care provider.

Vickie was an active member of Schoenbrunn Moravian Church at New Philadelphia where she served in many capacities throughout the years. She enjoyed her work as a Brownie and Girl Scout advisor when her daughters were younger and served for many years as a volunteer and board member with Harbor House. Most recently, Vickie has been serving as the Secretary for the Board of Trustees for the Society For Equal Access.

When not volunteering, Vickie was an avid reader and faithful Soap Opera watcher. She enjoyed crocheting and sewing and caring for her rose garden, flower beds and her house plants. As a mother and grandmother, there wasn’t a thing she would not do for her family. She was an excellent cook and loved making huge meals. To friends of her children, she was known as Mama Vickie, she made sure that no one ever left hungry and that they most certainly felt loved.

Vickie will be deeply missed by her children, Carl “Rocky” (Mary) Eichel, Jr., Gerald Eichel, Carla (Jerry) Watson, Tammy Eichel, Caren Eichel, Debbie (John) Baker, Vickie Eichel, Traci (Robert) Buzzeo, and Robin Torrence, 27 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren.

Completing the family are two sisters, Nancy (Terry) Miller and Debra (Michael) Bleininger, two nieces and two nephews.

In addition to her parents, Vickie was preceded in death by a son, Rodney Eichel, a great-grandson, Joshua Watson and a nephew, Quentin Miller.

The family will greet guests on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia from 5-8 PM. Pastor Ben Lippert will lead a service celebrating Vickie’s life in the Schoenbrunn Moravian Church at New Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, at 11 AM. A meal and fellowship will be held in the church social hall immediately following the service. Private inurnment will take place at a later date.

Memorial contributions in Vickie’s name may be directed to Schoenbrunn Moravian Church, 2200 East High Avenue, New Philadelphia, OH 44663 or to Harbor House Women’s Shelter, 345 East High Avenue, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

Vickie is an amazing person we will surely miss her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. She was definitely a lover of children. Some of Paige's favorite times were spent at Vickie's house. I remember her and my mother teaching Sunday school and always talking their long talks on the prayer chain. Forever in our hearts rest well sweet angel we will see you again in Heaven.

With a heavy heart, I’d like to extended my deepest condolences, to all of Miss Vickies children and family. She was certainly one of a kind. I will never forget all of the great memories as a young girl being babysat by her & always feeling welcomed and treated as one of her own. She was definitely an amazing woman, with a heart of gold. Sending lots of love and prayers, for peace & comfort to all of you??

She was the best friend, mom and grandma that anyone could ever ask for! There was nothing she wouldn’t do for her kids and grandchildren! Play air guitar, have a tea party, listen to them practice singing or playing music for performances- if we asked, she’d do it! She always made everyone feel loved and welcome! She was a mom to everyone that needed her. She truly loved people unconditionally. Her legacy will live on forever.


Misty Smith posted on 3/3/19

So many wonderful moments and memories were made. What an amazing love she had for everybody, and you felt it when she talked to you. It was a blessing to have known her. I loved when my son would stay overnight at her house and I would pick him up and she'd talk to me just as though he were a grandchild of hers. For sure she is going to be missed and the absence of her presence is going to be felt by many.

I am deeply sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. My mom fell asleep in death to soon due to an illness as well. Time allows the pain in our hearts to heal, but the aching emptiness never completely goes away. May precious memories comfort your mourning hearts. Please also find comfort & strength remembering that God promises us that we can reunite with our loved ones in the near future...on the peaceful, paradise earth God intended for mankind. An exciting time when Vickie will wake up to enjoy doing all the things that bring her joy again. John 11:11-44; Revelation 21:3, 4; Psalms 37:10, 11, 29. JW.ORG
