Chicago Sun-Times - - CLASSIFIEDS -

( nee McEachern) Passed away on Oc­to­ber 27, 2017 after a long bat­tle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia ( AML). Born March 16, 1943 to the late Don­ald and Marie McEachern of Home­wood and Floss­moor. Sur­vived by her de­voted chil­dren, Richard Payne of Los An­ge­les, Kathryn Payne Porter of Park For­est; sis­ters, Kathryn Baker of Los An­ge­les, and the late Frances Pritch­ett of Chicago. Lov­ing grand­mother “Meemaw” of Sean, Ni­cholas, Christo­pher and Mal­colm. Nieces, nephew and cousins in the Chicago area, Seat­tle, Las Ve­gas and Canada will also miss her. Vir­ginia and her long­time part­ner, the late Rod Hughes, lived in Olympia Fields for many years. Her much loved res­cue pets will dearly miss her. Her pas­sion to res­cue and feed home­less cats and dogs was a life­long ob­ses­sion. In the early 1970’ s, as a found­ing mem­ber of The South Sub­ur­ban Hu­mane So­ci­ety, she used to say her eyes never missed a home­less or abused crea­ture wan­der­ing on the streets, al­ways mak­ing sure to get them in her car and off to the vet. Not to men­tion, the birds in her gar­den never missed a meal, even in the last months of her life. Vir­ginia, a grad­u­ate of Lor­ing School for Girls in Bev­erly ( Class of 1961) and Mis­souri Val­ley Col­lege, moved on to be­come a flight at­ten­dant for Con­ti­nen­tal Air­lines ( based in Los An­ge­les). Dur­ing this time, she met and mar­ried the late Richard H. Payne of Bev­erly. Vir­ginia then be­came a suc­cess­ful re­al­tor/ bro­ker with Seay Cen­tury 21 and ReMax South Sub­ur­ban in Floss­moor for over forty years. She was loved and deeply ap­pre­ci­ated by nu­mer­ous clients and col­leagues. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions to TripleRpets, PO Box 86, West­ern Springs, IL 60558, an or­ga­ni­za­tion for the res­cue/ spay and neuter of home­less an­i­mals, are ap­pre­ci­ated.
