Margie Evans

Obituary of Margie A Evans

Margie Ann Schmidt was born April 20, 1937 in Monroe.  She was one of three children born from the union of the late Hugo Schmidt and the late Ada (Moore) Schmidt.  Margie attended Monroe Schools and went on to marry the love of her life at the age of sixteen, Arnold Robert Evans on August 31, 1953.   Together they would have four beautiful children whom she cared for at home and received her spiritual nourishment at Monroe Full Gospel Church in Monroe. 

Margie was very smart and quite talented. She enjoyed tinkering in the garage on automobiles and tree trimming. Family was everything to Margie. She was a proud parent of a United States Marine and bragged about all her children’s many accomplishments throughout their lives.  Margie looked forward to family events and holidays to spend time with all of her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  

In her quiet time, Margie could be found tinkering in her yard and everyone else’s. She could often be found working and fixing things in other people’s yards. If it needed fixed, she was going to get it done.

Margie Ann Evan, age 83, of Monroe passed away at 11:01pm on May 25, 2020 at Oasis of Monroe under the care of Elara Caring Hospice.   In addition to her parents and her husband of 50 years, Arnold, she is preceded by a daughter:  Rose Marie Evans; her brother:  Herbert Schmidt; and her sister-in-law: Marilyn Schmidt. 

To cherish her memory, she leaves her children:  Arnold “Clay” (Susan) Evans of San Antonio, Texas, Patsy S. Barkenquest of Monroe and Beverly L. Evans of Temperance; her brother:  Clarence Schmidt of Maumee, Ohio; many grandchildren and many more great grandchildren.

No public services are planned.
