April 26, 1930-December 1, 2016

Barbara Alice Evelsizor

Evelsizor Barbara Alice Evelsizor received her invitation to the best party she has ever attended on December 1, 2016. Barbara began her life's journey on April 26, 1930. She was born to Alan Hancock Ensor and Margaret Alice Crouch Ensor in Youngstown, OH. She was the youngest of four daughters. Her Mom died during the birth of her baby brother when she was only four year old. At that time, because her Dad was unable to care for the children, she along with her other siblings were placed into a Catholic orphanage where she lived until she was eighteen years of age. After leaving "The Home", she began working at a local restaurant in order to pay her bills, and she met her future husband, Robert Lamar Evelsizor. They married in 1949 and began their most excellent adventure. Bob joined the Army, and Barb became a military spouse moving from Army base to Army base, wherever Bob was stationed. Nikki was born in Yuma, AZ, Kristi at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, and Bob at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The family settled in San Francisco while Bob finished his active duty until 1963, when the relocated to Worthington, OH while he worked for the federal government at DCSC in Columbus. Barb loved her neighborhood and hosted many events, and became known for all the wonderful times and great food at all of her gatherings. She had many great and life-long friends, who have been waiting her arrival. Barb is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, son in law Ronald Beaver, and her beloved husband of 57 years, Bob. She is survived by her children; six grandchildren: Nathan, Jesse Rae, Christopher, R. Tyler, Christian, Brian and their spouses; 10 great grandchildren: Karlee, Zachary, Hailey, Tanner, Emma, Kolby, Faith, Gracin and Giana. Barb is also survived by her half-sister, Theresa Flaherty. A private graveside service was held at an earlier date, entrusted to SCHOEDINGER FUNERAL SERVICE. The family would like to thank all of the great nurses and the staff at Arden Court in Cincinnati, where Barb received the best loving care over the last three years. She will be remembered there by her great rendition of "Give My Regards to Broadway" and her great sense of humor. "Onward and Upward Barbie Baby!".
