Lisa C. Eylar, 48, of Atchison, KS, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016 at St. Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City, MO. She was born Aug. 25, 1968 in Falls City, the daughter of Edward J. and Glenda L. (Lunsford) Huber. She graduated from Atchison High School in 1986.
She married Tim Eylar on Oct. 22, 1988 at St. Joseph’s Church in Atchison.
Lisa began working during her junior year in high school as a sales representative for Runyan Jewelers in Atchison, continuing until 1999. From 2000-2015, she worked as school secretary at Atchison Catholic Elementary School (later renamed St. Benedict’s). She then transferred to Maur Hill-Mount Academy School as office manager, continuing until her untimely death due to complications of Lupus.
She was a member of St. Benedict Parish in Atchison. Lisa enjoyed baking and being in her kitchen at home where she was fondly known by her family, to be able to whip up a batch of cookies at a moment’s notice. She was the epitome of fun, love, and strength to her nieces and nephews and the numerous children at the school.
Survivors include her husband, of the couple’s home in Atchison; a son, Dawson Eylar, of Atchison; her father, Ed Huber, Atchison; three brothers, Mark (Rochelle) Huber, of Elk Grove, CA, Tom (Monique) Huber, of Atchison, KS, and Larry Huber, of St. Joseph, MO; and a sister, Sue Huber, of Atchison.
