Evelyn was a member of Sacred Heart Parish and worked as a receptionist at the City of Mt. Pleasant for 15 years, retiring in 1985. Evelyn was an avid basketball fan, having played in high school. She was particularly a fan of Sacred Heart Academy and Michigan State University, the Detroit Bad Boys, Bobby Knight and Tom Izzo. "Kindly leave your Jordans at the door" was a favorite phrase of hers. She enjoyed watching the Detroit Tigers (especially Miguel Cabrera) and leaves behind decades of celebrity boyfriends (Tom Selleck, Monk, Sidney Poitier, to name a few). The light of her life were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Evelyn is survived by six children, Mark Simons of Interlochen, Daniel (Jill) Simons, Margaret (Kip) Wood, and Joseph (Mary Lynn) Simons, all of Mt. Pleasant, David (Judy) Simons of Cadillac, and Cecilia (David) Jerome of Midland; daughter-in-law, Karen; 18 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and a number of nieces and nephews.

The Simons Family thanks the staff of Green Acres and MidMichigan Hospice for the wonderful care that was given to Evelyn.
