Evelyn S. Powers passed away peacefully on July 18, 2013, at Heartland of Holly Glen. Evelyn was born in Toledo on March 7, 1926, and was a graduate of Libbey High School. She loved Toledo where she lived her entire life. She met and married Leo in 1948 and they enjoyed 63 years together before his death in June, 2011.

Evelyn is survived by her two daughters, Liz Kumor and Marie Tanner (Michael); four grandchildren, Michael (Jen) Kumor, Laura (Shawn) Mickens, Stephen (Kelly) Tanner and Christie Tanner; and four great-grandchildren, Joseph Kumor, Alex, Chris, and Kinley Mickens.
