Eva Dell Zwisler Obituary
Eva Dell (Watson) Zwisler, 86, born March 24, 1927 in Akron, Ohio and died on Friday, June 21, 2013, a beautiful and warm summer evening, Eva Dell's favorite time of year. She was released from this world surrounded by the prayers, love, and devotion of her family. Eva Dell was born in Akron, Ohio, to George C. and Fanaye Pearl (Davis) Watson. She was the youngest of ten children. Eva Dell grew up in Akron and graduated from Garfield High School in the spring of 1945 and enrolled at the University of Akron. She was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. While attending college, she was employed by the General Tire and Rubber Co. She met her life's love and partner, Richard Zwisler, in 1946. They dated for two years and were married on August 7, 1948, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Akron, Ohio. Their love and devotion endured for 63 years of marriage. They moved their family of 9 children to Gustine,CA. in 1964 and then on to Boulder, CO. in 1967 with 11 in tow. In 2001, Eva Dell and Richard moved to Longmont, CO. Eva Dell was an incredible person. Anyone who entered her home was welcomed and made comfortable immediately by this small dynamo. There would always be a plate at the table, a pillow for a head, and an open heart for whoever entered her life. Eva Dell not only had 11 children but 18 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She has family members scattered around the world. A special note to the 12th child. Rochelle, you have been our sister from the day you moved to the house next door. You, Ravi, Isaac, and Amelia are part of the Zwisler family. Eva Dell was preceded in death by her husband, Richard, in 2011, her parents, 5 brothers and 3 sisters, a grandson, and a great-grandaughter. She is survived by her sons Richard II (Angela), Daniel, Gerald, Gary, Donald (Robin), and David (Robin); her daughters Barbara Garrels, Deborah Lewerke, Patricia (David) Smith, Susan (James) Rhodes, and Lora (Jeff) Gimar. Also survived by her sister Ruth Dellenberger of Sun City West, AZ. (MOTHER / muth'er/ n. A woman who raises and nutures a child with love and tenderness.) Vigil services will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25 at Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Boulder. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 26, also at Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Boulder. Burial will follow at Sacred Heart of Mary Cemetery.
