Interment will be in VanVoorhis Cemetery, Hindsboro, Illinois. Mrs. Eastin was a Godly woman, a devout Christian and devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her life was exemplified by Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies…Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness…Her children arise up and call her blessed…Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.” She is survived by her children, Mike (Sue) Eastin of Pesotum, Elaine Wilson of Champaign, and Anita (Chuck) Ellington of Oakley; nine grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, one grandson, Jeramy Vargocko; her parents, two sisters and one brother. For those who wish, the family suggests that memorials be made to the Vargocko-Guthridge Scholarship Fund, c/o Oakland High School. The family of Mrs. Eastin would like to express their special thanks to Decatur Memorial Hospital Hospice, Dr. Esparas and Dr. Junker.
