Ridgeton, Ohio

Evelyn Case, 96, of North Ridgeville and formerly of Galion died Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 at her home.

Born Feb. 22, 1916 in Ridgeton, she was the daughter of the late Christian and Fanny Endel Schnarrenberger. She was preceded in death on Jan. 20, 2003 by her devoted husband, E. Henry Case, whom she married on July 8, 1945.

Evelyn was a graduate of Holmes Liberty High School. She was a longtime active member of Peace Lutheran Church in Galion where she taught Sunday school for many years. She was also a member of American Legion Scarbrough Post 243 where she was Auxiliary President and VFW Post 4329 Auxiliary where she was past President and past District President. During her time in Galion, she had a 35 year career working at J & H Shoe Store.

As all who knew her well can attest, Evelyn could always be found cooking incredible meals and desserts for family and friends, or knitting a new project for donation or a personalized present. A fiercely devoted wife and family matriarch, Evelyn will be fondly remembered by all.

Surviving are one son, Chris Case of Chattanooga, Tenn.; one daughter, Barbara Stewart of Avon; four grandchildren, Ryan Terry Stewart, Matthew Kathleen Stewart, Kristina Ryan Eichar, Adam Case, and two great-grandchildren Maxwell Stewart and Rylan Stewart.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was also preceded in death by one daughter, Janet Case, a devoted daughter-in-law, Kathryn Case and a loving sister, Cora May Honsberger Diehl.
