Evelyn Frankl Kacher, of Chestertown, MD, passed away at Heron Point retirement community on June 16, 2021, at the age of 101. She is survived by her children, Paula Kacher, Donald Kacher, and Phyllis Kacher, and three grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sister Rita.
She was born in 1919, in Philadelphia, PA, to Jacob and Sophie Frankl. She attended Temple University, obtaining a dual degree in education and English in 1941. She met her future husband, Daniel Kacher, at Wildwood, NJ, in 1938. They married in 1941, and were very happy together until his death in 1999. They greatly enjoyed travelling together, to many destinations in Europe and South America. They also enjoyed sailing in the Chesapeake Bay for many years.
Evelyn greatly enjoyed playing bridge, poker and Scrabble. She was an active member of ORT and the American Jewish Congress. She loved literature, classical music, including opera, and playing piano. Her daughters remember, all these years later, what a fabulous seamstress and knitter she was.
Throughout her life, she thrived on being with people. She loved making new friends, and maintaining old friendships. As she aged, she sadly lost many of her old friends to death, but continued to make new ones through her final years. She attributed her longevity to an active life of walking and swimming.
