'"Mickey"' Mrs. Nobuko "Mickey" Everingham, age 88 of Robinson, IL died Saturday September 25, 2021 at her home surrounded by her loving family.
She was born May 10, 1933, in Yokohama Japan, seven Children born to Kanjiro and Kika (Yoshiwara) Tsutsumi, in the years just prior to WWII. She graduated high school in Japan, which in those days, was an education with emphasis on mathematics, science, and early forms of technology.
In March of 1955, several years following the end of WWII, she met and married Charles A. "Charley" Everingham and he preceded her in death. While married to Charley, Mickey was able to visit several other countries while her husband continued his military career. Following his retirement from the U. S. Army, the couple moved home to Robinson and her husband became a purchasing agent or the Federal Bureau of Prisons at Terre Haute, IN.
