Evelyn Mae Cahill, 61, a longtime resident of Oak Park, died at her home on Dec. 4, 2012. Born on July 3, 1951 in Cicero to Henry and Elizabeth Rybacki, she graduated from St. Dionysius Elementary and Morton East High School. She was employed with United Stationers until her retirement in 2009 and was a Teamster's Union steward.
She was an avid gardener, reader, and an awesome cook, but her true passions were her children and her grandchildren. A woman of simple pleasures, she taught them how to love.
Evelyn Mae Cahill is survived by her husband, Terry; her children, Melissa, Sean and Meagan; her grandchildren, Brandi (Ryan) Eaton, Ashley Cahill, Rebecca Moseley, and Fallon Heady; her great-grandchild, Jase Eaton; and her siblings, Arlene Rybacki, Dolores (Gene) Hloucek and Henry "Hank" (Debbie) Rybacki.
Visitation was held Dec. 6 at Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home. A funeral Mass was celebrated on Dec. 7 at Ascension Church. Interment was private.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Oak Park Conservatory, 615 Garfield, Oak Park, IL 60304 are appreciated.
