From the Jackson Citizen Patriot May 21, 2004:


Born February 12, 1921 to Verne and Lorene (White) Greer in Jackson, Michigan, passed away peacefully under the loving care of her family and Great Lakes Hospice, at her daughter Robyn's home,aged 83.
Besides her parents, Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, Robert H., son Charles L., brother and sister-in-law Arthur and Patricia Greer, brother-in-law Ted Strassburg, and brother-in-law Richard Strassburger.
Evelyn is survived by her children, Sandra S. (Ronald) Grow of Jackson, Jeannine K. (Ronald) McMahel of North Augusta, NC, Fredrick M. of Cape Canaveral, FL, and Robyn (William) Fall of Michigan Center; brother Vernon (Rosemarie) Greer of Brooklyn; sister-in-law Virginia Strassburg of Spring Arbor; sister-in-law Eva Strassburger of El Paso, TX; 12 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins,and friends.

Evelyn was a very active member of the Jackson Community. She worked at the Jackson Chamber of Commerce, and at the same time, sat on The Board of Directors for the Jackson County Rose Festival., she also worked at the Cascades Ice Company and Sports Arena as a bookkeeper, and in "retirement" as secretary for the Jackson County Rose Festival. In her later years, she enjoyed volunteering for the R.S.V.P., the V.F.W., the V.F.W. Cooties and was a member of the Reed Manor Tenant Association, where she resided for 10 years until her failing health brought her to her daughters home last December. She also enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, time outside during the summer months, and trips during her Rose Festival years with "the girls" to the Miss Michigan and Miss America Pagents. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
At her request, Evelyn has donated her body as a last "volunteer effort" to the University of Michigan School of Medicine in the hopes of furthering research, as a result, there will be no visitation or service at this time. A memorial service will be held at a later date. The family wishes donations to be made in her name to The National Kidney Foundation, Great Lakes Hospice, or foundation of your choice.
