Evelyn Midura passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends whom she loved, on February 13, 2021, following a nine-year battle with Ovarian cancer.
Evelyn’s friend, Sandy Holmes, wrote, “Evelyn was a creative person who always thought of others more than of herself. Evelyn belonged to several knitting groups and was a member of the Red Hats Society. Evelyn used her creative talents to beautify the world through her lovely garden and the plethora of hats, mittens, sweaters, and scarfs she made and donated to those in need. Evelyn loved music. She sang in the St. Mary’s choir and played a variety of musical instruments. She made beautifully creative greeting cards which I shall always treasure. Evelyn took me places I’d never otherwise have seen. She was a good friend and generous beyond all measure. She will be sorely missed and gratefully remembered.”
Evelyn grew up in New Bedford and earned her BS in accounting. She designed computer programs for several years before retiring. Evelyn is predeceased by her parents, John and Catherine Midura and her sister, Valerie Rollins. She is survived by her two sisters, Rosemary Pazer and Nancy Midura, her nephews, Peter (Lisa) Pazer and Jeffrey (Angela) Pazer, her niece, Jessica (Dan) Denisi and a grandniece, Eva Pazer and grandnephew, Alexander Pazer.
Memorial contributions may be made to ovarian cancer research or charity of choice.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank Southcoast Hospice and all those who helped Evelyn.
