Evelyn Jeraldine Schrick

October 18, 1933 — March 2, 2024

O'Fallon, Missouri

Evelyn Jeraldine Schrick, beloved wife of the late Francis Schrick, passed away surrounded by family 3/2/24 at the age of 90.

Evelyn is survived by her devoted sons, Larry Schrick and Joe (Michelle) Schrick. She will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren: Jacob (Dana) Schrick, Joseph (Kate) Schrick, Blaire Schrick, and Madeleine Schrick. Evelyn’s great-grandchildren, Gunnar Schrick, Axle Schrick, Augie Schrick, and Hudson Schrick brought immense joy and happiness to her life.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Francis J. Schrick. Evelyn is also mourned by her late father Everett Hackler and late mother Lula Hackler.

Born in a modest one bedroom cabin deep in the Missouri Ozarks to a mid-wife, this country girl with such humble beginnings managed to travel around the world.

Before her travels began, she migrated from the Ozarks to University City where she became a successful student and gymnast.  While watching a pickup baseball game at Heman Park, she caught the eye of local baseball star Francis “Babe” Schrick and from that point on they were inseparable.

She quickly became immersed into a life of sports from cheering on “Babes” baseball and softball endeavors, to later traveling the country to watch her sons compete, she wore the badge of soccer mom with honor.  Her only complaints were the days that had two events and she could only see one of them.

To the best comfort food cook this side of the Mason Dixon Line. Friends and Relatives would mysteriously stop by on Fried Chicken night it was so good.

She bravely traveled the country from one state to the other. She also navigated travels to Canada, Mexico, France, Germany, Spain, Puerto Rico, Siberia and Russia.

A Master Gardner with the greenest of thumbs, she could grow anything anywhere and rescue the sickest of plants.

Mostly though, she was a humble servant of God, she carried her faith deeply and held on with strong convictions. Her kindness, compassion, and humility were the key notes to her soul and if it is true the “meek shall inherit the earth”, then Mom will own the Horizons.
