Evelyn J. Nickler

January 20, 1931 ‒ April 24, 2020

Galion, Ohio

Evelyn J. Nickler, 89, of Galion passed away Friday, April 24, 2020.

She was born January 20, 1931 in Crestline and was the daughter of John E. Blaising, Sr. and Louise (Keller) Blaising. Evelyn is survived by her husband of 70 years, Royal Nickler, Jr.

Evelyn was a full-time homemaker. She prided herself in keeping a spotless house. Evelyn loved cooking and baking. She enjoyed feeding people, which often led to her children’s friends preferring to eat her food rather than going home to eat.

Along her husband, she was an avid Indian artifact hunter and was very knowledgeable on the subject. After her husband retired, they spent eighteen winters in Arizona enjoying sun over snow here in Ohio. Christmas was her favorite time of year. In her final years with Alzheimer’s it was Christmas year around.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two daughters, Susan (Ralph) Nelson of Galion and Sandra (fiancée John Gaulrapp) Nickler of Cave Creek, Arizona; son Randy (Cathy) Nickler of Galion; three grandchildren, Laura (Kevin) Garver of Shelby, Keith (Heidi) Nickler of Bellville and Aikkiko Nicole Nickler in the United States Navy, stationed aboard the USS Essex; six great-grandchildren; two sisters Carolyn Nusser of Jackson City, Missouri and Mary Jackson of Georgia and a brother Michael Blaising of Crestline.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Royal Nickler III of Galion and her brothers Eugene Blaising of Lakewood, Ohio, John Blaising, Jr. of Mansfield and James Blaising of California.

Private services for the family will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to Alzheimer’s Association in care of the funeral home.

Richardson Davis Chapel of Snyder Funeral Homes in Galion is honored to serve the family of Evelyn Nickler, and condolences may be made to them at www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com.
