Evelyn Midura

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.

    So very saddened to see this obituary today. My Mom Hilda met Evelyn Midura through the Interchurch Council program in 1976. Evelyn became a lifelong friend of my Mom because of the counseling she provided her in the program. As a result I got to meet and befriend Evelyn as well.in the 1980’s I gave adult piano lessons to Evelyn at the home of my Mom. I received a phone call from her after Christmas this year and realized then the gravity of her health.
    I would love to be invited to her memorial service. Before Covid she visited my Mom at Alden Court. She brought her some flowers and returned the kindness of the years. I loved knowing Evelyn and my funniest memory was going to the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament one year in the early 80’s. A deluge of rain began to fall and there was no escape but to run for cover under the pavilion. The 3 of us laughed so hard together as we were squished with everyone. I also recall her taking us to the Heritage Museum and Gardens in late May to see the beautiful flowers in bloom. Evelyn, May the choirs of angels come to greet you. May they speed you to Paradise. May the Lord enfold you in His mercy. May you find eternal life.
