Eveline was born May 15, 1943, in Salzgitter Lebenstedt, Germany, to Josef and Susanna (Karschiti) Weber.  Eveline moved to the United States on July 6, 1956. She loved her German heritage but was proud to be an American and loved the country very much. She moved to Boston where she went to school while working and received her Associate’s degree. Boston is also where she met the love of her life Paul Gilley and they bonded over their love for music and singing. They married on August 25, 1968, in Swampscott Massachusetts. After they moved to Texas and had 5 daughters. She loved travel and was a retired travel agent. She was also known for her love of sports soccer and football. Especially the Dallas Cowboys. When Paul passed she moved to Washington to live with her daughter and son-in-law.  She quickly grew a love of the Seattle Seahawks and Sounders. Eveline truly loved life’s simple pleasures; chatting and spending time with family and friends, snacking (especially on stinky cheese) and her strong love for her Seventh Day Adventist religion. Eveline, a breast cancer survivor, had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. She would never forget a date or a name. She will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her.

Eveline was preceded in death by her Husband Paul Gilley parents Josef and Susanna (Karschiti) Weber, sisters Hermine Grunwald and Irene Schattner, brothers Oskar P. Weber, Josef Weber, and Walter Weber.

She is survived by her daughters, Rhonda Gilley Anderson of Anchorage, Alaska, Theresa Tyler (Steve) of Ft. Worth Tex., Andrea Bunch (Shay), Zanna Gilley Lovett of Seattle, Wash and Heather Boldon of Cleburne, Tex; grandchildren, Alexa, Garrett, Damien, Hadyn, Victoria, Mary, Carrie and Dallas. Great grandchildren Josiah, Rosabella, and Isabella.

    Extending my deepest sympathy to the Weber-Gilley family.
    My memories of Eveline include her beautiful smile, her forthright words, and her glorious voice. I will always remember the Pearly White City rendition by Eveline and Paul Gilley. I’m looking forward to heaven and hearing her sing this song.
