A blessing born to Earl and Hattie Adkins on December 1, 1917 in Peoria Ill. Evelyn Faith is survived by her loving daughters, Dianne Mencas and Julie Ladeau; beloved grandchildren, Tonya Poitevint, Lisa Koester, and Val Mencas; great grandchildren, Evan, Ava, and Ivy Poitevint, Davis and Logan Koester, and Mallory, Liam, and Ryder Mencas and a dear brother, Barney Adkins of Peoria, Ill. Evelyn was married to Anton Joseph Weih, who preceded her in death. Evelyn and Tony spent 37 years raising their two daughers and traveling together visiting relatives and making many friends along the way.



Evelyn was a constant companion to our family’s dear loved one Ken Carter, who preceded her in death. Evelyn and Ken spent 20 years together thereafter, enjoying life and making many friends. Evelyn was preceded in death by her brother, Truman Adkins, whom she loved and admired throughout her life.



Evelyn, also known as “Evie” to her dear friends was a supremely elegant woman who lived life on her terms, while imparting so many wonderful life lessons throughout the years to everyone in her adoring family.



Evelyn’s life was filled with a plethora of dear friends and joyous socialization, and her fashionable zest for living life the right way set a phenomenal example for everyone around her. Evelyn had a love of dance whether it was square dancing or ballroom and was an avid bridge partner, spending some of her happiest moments playing cards with friends and family.



In addition to generations of family who adored her, Evelyn was always blessed with a barrage of close friends who loved her and she was truly admired by all who had the privilege of knowing her.



All along her life path, Evelyn always carried a positive attitude. When one door closed, Evelyn bravely opened the next door and never looked back with regret or indecision.







“An elegant woman with class and allure,



A timeless loving matriarch so wise and so sure





She imparted wisdom and lessons all throughout her life



Ensuring family would live well without pain or strife





Our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend



Was a fiercely amazing woman right up to the end."









We love you forever, mom
