Evelyn I. Pavlatos


Service: 10:00am Wed. November 13th, 2019
Location: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church

PAVLATOS, Evelyn Inge, entered into eternal life on November 9th, 2019 following a well-lived 92 years on earth. She is now reunited with her husband of 50 years, Robert Basil Pavlatos. Evelyn was born on June 17th, 1927 in Berlin, Germany where she lived until 1947 when she emigrated to the United States. When she left Berlin, she left behind the horrors of war and of the Russian occupation of Berlin. She arrived in the United States under the sponsorship of an uncle in Detroit, Michigan. Soon thereafter, she made her way to Springfield where she met and married Bob. She heartily embraced her new life, the Greek culture and the Greek Orthodox Faith. Evelyn took advantage of the opportunities that life in America presented, becoming an entrepreneur and raising quarter horses. Evelyn was the mother of three children, Stacey (Julie) Pavlatos of South Charleston, Christina Lynch of South Vienna and Fr. Timothy (Victoria) Pavlatos of Chandler, Arizona. She was also a grandmother open (“Omi”) to 14 grandchildren; Elias, Luke, Madeline, Arianna, Gabriel, Tatiana, Isaiah, Andreas, Gabriella, Giordana, Anysia, Tasso, Azrael and Evanthea. She embraced motherhood and grandmotherhood with the same energy and love as she did life itself. While she is no longer with us in person, her spirit and laughter will always be with her family. Schlaf schön, Omi. Friends may call from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Tuesday in the CONROY FUNERAL HOME. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am on Wednesday in the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church. Burial will be held at 10:00 am on Thursday in Ferncliff Cemetery.

Stacey, Christina and Tim: So sorry for the loss of your mother! She was a great lady who earned my respect for her grace, dignity and overall love for her husband and children. It was obvious to me she loved your father and each of you very much. Always kind to me and I loved hearing her express her admiration for each of you and your dad. She lived a long, useful life and was indeed a unique lady. I know she is so proud of all of you and would want you to live your lives to the fullest. Remember, she is with your father again and you will no doubt join her someday. In the meantime, try to remember all the special times you enjoyed with her!
