Reva G Eicher passed away peacefully at Harry Hynes Hospice in Via Christi St. Francis, Wichita, Kansas at the age of 74.
Reva Eicher was born to Wayne and Irma Deeds on April 19, 1947 in Goodland, KS.
She graduated from Brewster High in 1965 and then attended Fort Hays State University in Retail Merchandising. Reva married Jon Eicher her high school sweetheart, on September 1, 1966.
After moving back from Manhattan, KS. Jon and Reva began farming 15 miles North of Brewster, Kansas. On October 13, 1967, the couple welcomed their daughter, Michele into their family. Two years later, on June 16, 1969, Reva and Jon welcomed their first son, Rick Eicher, into their family, and their second son Pete Eicher on March 6,1972. Reva was very instrumental in sharing the Gospel with her children and making sure that Christ was the center of the family.
Reva was a woman of many talents, as she had to be independent and resourceful as a farmer’s wife. Besides the day-to-day activities of cooking, cleaning, and laundry, she learned to drive tractors and trucks, and work cattle. Once Jon and Reva left the farm she wore many more hats, such as Optometry and Dental assistant, Retail Liquidator, Bed and Breakfast Host and acquired her CNA. However, her gift was in decorating and landscaping that was soon recognized in the community, as her gift was requested by many.
Reva was a bubbly spirit that would always encourage others. She loved to sing and glorify God and she was passionate about sharing the Gospel of Christ with everyone she encountered. Reva was instrumental in starting Brewster Full Gospel Church, and often volunteered on many platforms no matter what church she was attending.
