Obituary for Leah M. Evans

Leah M. Evans, 96, of Fostoria, passed away at 7:40 pm Monday May 13, 2019 at Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria.

She was born May 31, 1922 in Seneca County to Robert and Ethel (Young) Gwiner. She married Paul M. Evans August 31, 1940 at St. Wendelin Rectory and he died April 2, 2006, after 65 years of marriage.

Surviving are four children, Paula (Ronald) Roberts, Thomas Evans, Carol Evans, and Vicki (Rick) Grisham; six grandchildren, Kris (Mike) Fisher, Beth (Chris) Hott, John Roberts, Leah (Nick) Webber, Abby Grisham, and Erin Grisham; and great-grandchildren, Matthew, Emily, Hannah, Landon, Dalton, with one more on the way. She was preceded in death by her husband, an infant son, James and sisters, Helen M. Hemrick and Ruth Ritter; and three brothers, Robert, Earl and Charles Gwiner.

Leah was a 1940 graduate of Jackson-Liberty High School and a member of St. Wendelin Church. Over the years, she worked for Grants, White Front Market, K-Mart, and at Auto-Lite during WWII.

While raising their family, Leah spent time growing and canning food from their garden. She loved her strawberry patch! She also enjoyed sewing, growing flowers, camping at Shady Lake Campground, bingo, puzzles, their dogs, travel to western states, and listening to and watching Cleveland Indian Games.

Most of all, she loved being with her family, especially at birthdays and holidays. She was always ready for visiting with grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who all had a special place in her heart. She will be very missed by all who loved her.

Mass of Christian Burial is 10:30 am Friday May 24, 2019 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church with Rev. Todd Dominique presiding. A funeral lunch and gathering will immediately follow the Mass in the parish hall. Burial is at Knollcrest Cemetery, Arcadia.
