Eve Wilke (Olivieri),

Monday January 16, 1933 – Wednesday May 27, 2020

Eve Wilke, 87, passed away peacefully in her home. She was predeceased by her husband William Wilke; parents Michael and Josephine Olivieri; brothers Alphonse and Albert Olivieri; son-in-law Rick Dufoe. She is survived by her son Michael (Carol) Wilke; daughters Joween (Craig) Opperman and Kim Dufoe; grandchildren Christopher (Jessica) Wilke and their children, Joseph and Elijah; Thomas Rund; Dr. Patricia Wilke; many loving cousins and friends.

Eve was a devoted wife, loving mother, and doting grandmother. She treasured family and cherished memories – saving every greeting card and displaying photos. She was an excellent cook – serving seven-course Sunday dinners and entertaining throughout the holidays. She enjoyed crafting, which added charm to the homes of family and friends. She watched Turner Classic Movies – especially beautiful love stories and musicals. In her later years, she socialized with friends – in between achieving high bowling scores, she was often recognized for having beautiful gardens at Springside Meadows.

All are invited to attend a Mass of Remembrance to be held at 10:30 am on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at St. Ambrose Church, 25 Empire Blvd, Rochester, NY 14609.

Mom, rest in peace. We miss you and will love you forever.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society.
