The wake for Evanston Township assessor-elect Sharon Eckersall has been scheduled for 6–8:30 p.m. Wednesday with a funeral at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1509 Ridge in Evanston.
A representative of retiring township assessor Bonnie Wilson made the announcement at Monday’s Evanston City Council meeting.
Eckersall, 69, who had previously served three terms as Evanston township assessor, had been re-elected to the office and would have been sworn in January, but she was found dead earlier this month at her home on the 2500 block of Ashland.
A cause of death has yet to be determined. Toxicology tests are pending, but police have told Patch there was no sign of foul play.
