Nadine Anna Eacker

May 1, 1925 ~ June 27, 2020 (age 95)


Nadine Anna Eacker, 95, died peacefully on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at her home in Potlatch surrounded by her family.

Our mom was born in Ericson, Nebraska on May 5, 1925 to Louis Rosso and Anna (Taddiken) Rosso. She was the youngest of eight children.

Nadine came from Nebraska in 1946 and met and dated Carroll Eacker. They eloped and were married at Coulee City, WA on October 10, 1946. They then settled in the Deary and Potlatch areas. They raised three children, Doug, Gayle and Joe.

Mom was a homemaker. She loved picking huckleberries, crocheting, bowling, fishing, playing cards and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She has long been an avid fan of baseball, basketball and football. She enjoyed watching Potlatch Loggers games, especially ones connected with Doug, Gayle and Joe. Mom bowled for many years and held the position of treasurer or secretary for her leagues. She was inducted into the local bowling hall of fame in 2013. Nadine also belonged to the Harvard Ladies Aid, the Eagles and Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary.

She is survived by a sister, Maxine Thome of Nebraska, her children, Doug Eacker of Potlatch, Gayle Stout (Doug) of Genesee and Joe Eacker of Genesee. She also leaves 8 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Carroll J. Eacker in 2005 and sisters, Mae, Geraldine and Irene and brothers, Milt, Erv and Everett as well as her parents.

The family would like to thank Barb Osborn for her dedication and devotion to our mom, special days of eating out, going to basketball games and many hours of conversation. Her card playing day were spent with Barb, Laurie and Evelyn – friendships last a lifetime.
