Cheryl Lynne Mitschele Eichmann, 63, of Manasquan, NJ passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 16th 2021, surrounded by her husband and daughters. She grew up in Livingston, NJ and later moved to Denville, NJ after marrying the love of her life, Paul, in 1982. Cheryl worked her way up the corporate ladder at Prudential from 1975 until 1989. She then left the workforce in 1992 to pursue her true dream in life, being a mother. In 1997 Cheryl and her family relocated permanently to Manasquan, NJ after falling in love with the shore through her many summers spent there both as a child and then later with her husband and daughters.
Cheryl is survived by her husband, Paul Eichmann of 38 years; her loving daughters, Veronica Eichmann (28) and Samantha Eichmann (27); her mother, Joyce (Weber) Mitschele; her brothers, Clinton Mitschele and Louis Mitschele; her sisters; Patricia Beaumont and Lisa Campbell, and many nieces, nephews, and large extended family who dearly loved her. She was predeceased by her father, Herbert J. Mitschele Jr.; her father and mother in law, Frank Eichmann and Marguerite Eichmann, sisters, Virginia Mitschele and Mary Evans; and her brothers, Herbert J. Mitschele III and Michael Mitschele.
Cheryl grew up helping out at her family farm and frequently reminisced about riding her horse, Spirit. She attended Mount St. Dominic Academy from 1971 – 1975, and her favorite memories of high school were on the basketball court playing point guard for the team. Cheryl started her first job right out of high school at Prudential in Roseland, NJ. She began in the mailroom and left as an Associate Operations Manager. During her time at Prudential, Cheryl loved to play for the softball team and always enjoyed the company picnics. It was at one of those famous picnics in 1976 where Cheryl met her husband, Paul, and the rest was history.
Paul and Cheryl were married for 10 years before having children, and spent their days travelling, and enjoying their summer shore house. In 1992, Cheryl became a mother for the first time and her life changed forever. She was a fantastic mom who always put her family first. Some of her children’s best memories of her are helping with school art projects, creating obstacle courses around the house on a rainy day, reading books at night and playing in their pool. Cheryl always had a way of making holidays special and passed on many of her favorite traditions. She was famous for making over 100 dozen cookies around Christmas and passing them around to her friends and family. Cheryl never missed an opportunity to help someone in need. She was there for anyone who needed her at the drop of the hat, because she truly cared about every single person in her life.
Throughout her prolonged battle with cancer, Cheryl never lost herself, never complained, and never lost sight of the finish line. She faced each challenge with courage, strength, and a sense of humor unlike any other. She was able to joke and laugh throughout her darkest days, gaining the love of everyone who had the honor of meeting her along the way. The Eichmann family would like to sincerely thank all of the amazing healthcare professionals who worked to help heal and comfort Cheryl and treated her like she was part of their family. Your actions and efforts will never be forgotten.
