Evelyn E. Watkins, 90, of Galion, went home to her Lord, Monday morning, May 19, 2014 at Mill Creek Nursing in Galion.
She was born July 29, 1923 in Mansfield and was the daughter of James and Ida (Lester) McGinnis.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two daughters, two sons, a granddaughter and seven sisters.
Evelyn is survived by two daughters, Diana and Kathy Watkins; two sons, Michael Watkins and Larry (Annette) Watkins; 20 grandchildren; 36 great-grandchildren; 3 great great-grandchildren and two special nieces Carol Ann Smith and Joann Oviedo.
She enjoyed many things in life but greatest joy was her family and lifelong friends.
There are no words to express how much her remaining 4 children will miss her; she was our hero, we love you Mom.
A special thank you goes to the staff at Mill Creek for the exceptional care they gave her.
Arrangements are in care of the Snyder Funeral Home Richardson Davis Chapel and services will be at a later date at Maple Grove Cemetery in New Haven.
