OVERBROOK, Kan. – Eva Katherine Sebring, 90, of Overbrook, Kan., formerly of Burlingame, Kan., passed away Dec. 27, 2018, at Brookside Retirement Community, Overbrook. She was born Nov. 29, 1928, in Colby, Kan., the daughter of Fred Aaron Sortor and Anna Urania Carolina (Tolin) Sortor.

Eva grew up in Clay Center, Kan., graduating from Clay Center High School with the class of 1946, with her degree in normal training.

On Oct. 19, 1946, Eva was united in marriage to LeRoy Sebring, in Clay Center. They celebrated 52 years of marriage until Leroy passed away in 1998.

Eva and LeRoy moved to Topeka, Kan., in the early 1950s. She worked for Macy’s and then Dillard’s, in Topeka, as a sales associate for more than 30 years, retiring in 1996. In 1970, they moved to Burlingame, where Eva lived until 2006, when she moved to Overbrook.

Eva was a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Topeka, until moving to Overbrook, and then attended Overbrook Bible Church. She spent many hours at the Osage City Senior Center. She loved to sew and participate in their crafts programs. She even spent time oil painting there. She always enjoyed getting together with the retired Macy’s workers group at Perkins to catch up over a cup of coffee. She loved to ride horses. She participated in a 100-mile trail ride, which was a great memory for her. She was a member of the Topeka Round-up Club and served the club for many years as a board member. She was also an avid cake decorator. Her artistic abilities were always up to the challenge of a great cake to make. Most important to Eva was her family.
