Evelyn Boyd Windle, 88, of Highland Twp., passed away on Wednesday, June 10th after a recent illness.  She was the widow of Donald Hogg Windle, Sr., who passed away in 2010 after they had shared 56 years of marriage.  

Born in Townsend, Delaware, Evelyn was the daughter of the late Margaret Helen (Reed) and Robert Nelson Boyd.  Evelyn was a 1949 graduate of Middletown High School, Delaware.  She worked tirelessly beside her husband to run their family farm for many years.  Evelyn was a devoted wife and loving mother to her family.  She enjoyed gardening, canning, baking and providing for and spending time with her family.

Evelyn attended Cochranville United Methodist Church and was a member of Friendship United Methodist Church for many years.

She is survived by her five children: Nancy Root, wife of Steve, of Gap, Donald Windle Jr., husband of Nancy, of Gum Tree, Mary McKee, wife of Jerry, of Gum Tree, Susan Rzucidlo, wife of James, of Gum Tree and Marge Shank, wife of Douglas, of Lancaster; twelve grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Evelyn was predeceased by her grandson, Kevin, and her two brothers, Nelson Boyd and Franklin Boyd.

Nancy, Don, Mary, Sue and Marge,

So sorry to hear of your loss.  I remember when your mother came to the farm for the first time and our grandfather was smitten with her.  He felt she was the perfect farm wife for Uncle Don - and he was right.  She loved and cared for her family above all and yet stiil was a part of the bigger community,  Her passing leaves a hole that will be hard to fill.

We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers in these uncertain times.
