Evelyn L. Fier
85, of Carrollton, died Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013 at 1:39 a.m. in her residence following an extended illness. Born July 7, 1928 in Cleveland she was a daughter of the late Dominik Litvitus. She was a bookkeeper and assisted her husband in the operation of American Highway Products in Bolivar which he founded in 1978. Evelyn was a very strong-willed person and her self-taught knowledge about healthy eating and nutrition led her to become a Vegan, which enabled her to survive 35 years after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She was passionate about sharing her love of food and cooking with friends and family, and it was not uncommon for her to give gifts of her favorite vegan cookbooks and recipes to others. She also enjoyed roller skating and won many awards in competition.
Her husband of 58 years, Raymond L. Fier, preceded her in death Aug. 30, 2013. She is survived by two sons, Eric (Debbie) Fier of Bolivar and Scott (Virginia) Fier of Massillon; four grandchildren, Carmen, Kayla, Courtney and Dominic Fier; and a step-grandson, James. In addition to her father and husband she was preceded in death by a sister, Ruth Lisey. The family would like to thank all the people for their care and support above all, Lisa Jones, Linda Renner and Amy Martin with the Hospice Care Center at Carrollton, Ohio.
