Nov. 11, 1927 — Feb. 14, 2014
Evelyn Lillian Colombo passed away peacefully in her home on Feb. 14, 2014, at the age of 86. Born in Buffalo, N.Y., on Nov. 11, 1927, she is remembered by her family as a loving wife, very special mother of four, grandmother of 10, and great-grandmother of six.
Evelyn lived a long, happy life and she cherished the time she spent with her family and friends. She always loved children and was known widely for her compassion and kindness. Later in her life, she received her degree in early childhood education and spent many years working with preschool children. She loved celebrating birthdays and holidays with her sons and grandchildren, and seeing each generation grow with the passing decades. She is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, August Colombo; her brother, Art Mullins; and her four sons, Alan, Mark, Terry and Dale.

The service will be held at 3 p.m., and there will be a reception following the service at Evelyn and August’s home. Flowers may be sent or donations can be made to the Faith Episcopal Church.
