Eileen A. Fick

Eileen A. Fick, age 98, passed away Saturday, September 30, 2017, in South Bend, IN.

 

Eileen was born February 9, 1919, in Baltimore, MD, a daughter to the late George and Viola Atkins.

 

She graduated from Catonsville High School in Catonsville, MD, and matriculated at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, from which she received her Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, in 1939.

 

Eileen enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1944, and was assigned to the Naval Warfare Testing Station at Solomon Island on the Chesapeake Bay. She met her future husband, Clarence Fick, who was serving as an officer on a mine sweeper, and they subsequently married on November 20, 1946, in Halethorpe, MD. He preceded her in death on February 16, 2010.

 

Eileen moved to Missouri with Clarence, where they first lived in Rich Fountain, later moving to Jefferson City where they started a family, and then residing in St. Louis. In 1968, Eileen and Clarence returned to central Missouri, building a new home just outside of Linn.

 

Eileen was a long-time member of the Osage County Extension Club and was a founding donor of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial in Arlington, VA.

 

Eileen is survived by one son, Robert Fick and one daughter Barbara Fick.
