In Memoriam: Rev. Dr. Eunice Blanchard Poethig


McCormick mourns the passing of Rev. Eunice Poethig who returned to God on May 25, 2018. She graduated in the class of 1975 and is survived by her husband, Rev. Richard “Dick” Poethig, a former faculty member.

Eunice was a resident of Chicago, Illinois at the time of passing. Eunice was a graduate of DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana (where she led efforts to diversify the sorority system), Union Theological Seminary in New York (Ph.D), and McCormick Theological Seminary (M.Div.) in Chicago. A service to celebrate her life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on April 28 at Lake View Presbyterian Church, 716 W. Addison St., in Chicago. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Lake View Presbyterian Church/Eunice Poethig Memorial Fund.
