MANSFIELD:  Evelyn P. Weber-Chandler peacefully passed away Friday, September 8, 2017 at Hospice of Cincinnati in Blue Ash, Ohio. She was 95.

She was born November 2, 1921 to parents Eugene and Rose (Stull) Payne in Danville, Ohio.  She attended St. Vincent High School in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.  After graduating in 1940 she went to beauty college in Baltimore, Maryland.

Evelyn worked as a beautician in Mt. Vernon and opened her own business in Mansfield called “Evelyn’s Beauty Shop”.  She later worked 15 years as a dispatcher for United Telephone before retiring.

She was a former hospital volunteer in Westerville. In younger years, she enjoyed bowling and dancing; she always loved to travel, especially cruising.

But above all, she  lived for her children and grandchildren and cherished spending time with her family.  Evelyn somehow managed to make each of her children and grandchildren feel as though they were her favorite.

  • Evelyn and her wonderful family were my next door neighbors for many years. She was a devoted mother, full of tireless energy, and ruled her large family with a kind and gentle hand. Msny times, as I observed them from my porch next door, I wanted nothing more than to be a child in that large, noisy, chaotic, but loving family. My heartfelt sympathies to the entire Weber/Chandler family…I know that you have suffered a great loss. May the memory of Evelyn’s loving spirit sustain you through these difficulticult days.

  • What a beautiful lady Evelyn was. Though she already had six sons, she accepted me into the family as her seventh and I never felt any less than a son to her. She made her family a priority and her friends were all extended family. My heart aches for the Weber/Chandler families. But I know her legacy of love will live on in all your hearts. Thank you Evelyn for all your love and care over the years. I know you’re with the angels now and that I have another guardian angel to look after me.

  • Dear John and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. John, it’s apparent after reading about her that your warm smile and great sense of humor were gifts you received from your mom. I hope you find comfort in your memories with your mom and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  • Evelyn Weber was one of the sweetest persons I ever met. When I was transferred to Mansfield, from Mt. Vernon, I worked with her. She was the first employee who came up and made me feel safe. She knew my husband Ray Peterson, she really made me feel welcomed. She was beautiful person inside and out. Rest in peace Evelyn, I’m sure everyone who knew you will miss you forever. Rest in peace Evelyn, you’ll be missed. Our sympathy for the family. Ray and Shirley Peterson, Mt. Vernon, Ohio
