Obituary

Mrs. Evolyn "Evie" Alayne (Fisher) Seaman, born on April 1, 1931 in Syracuse, New York, to Mildred and Conrad Fisher, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family, at age 88 on May 18, 2019 in Naperville, Illinois. Evolyn graduated from New York State Teacher's College in Oswego and later earned her Master's in Education at Northern Illinois University. She was an elementary school teacher until retiring in 1990 after teaching at Pioneer School in West Chicago for 20 years. Evolyn was married to the love of her life George Seaman, Sr. for 55 years until his death in 2007. As a Navy wife she lived on the East coast from Long Island, New York to Key West, Florida, then in Michigan and finally settling in Wheaton, Illinois. All who heard her beautiful soprano voice enjoyed her solos and singing as part of the church choir, The Wheaton Choir, or to pass the time on long car rides. Evie started tent camping with her husband and children and after retirement traveled every winter with their camper trailer; they visited all but 2 of the continental 48 states. She was an avid reader, enjoyed gardening, crafts, crossword puzzles, in her later years coloring, and always loved to sing. She was an involved member of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, a member of the choir, Daughters of the King, altar guild and Sunday school teacher. Evie was a warm, caring, outgoing, friendly woman, a loving wife and mother, who will be sorely missed by her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Ardyce Saunders and Mildred Carazzo, and her brother, Conrad Fisher, II . Evolyn is survived by her sons, George Seaman, Jr. and Robert Seaman; daughters, Christina Butler and Virginia Seaman; grandchildren, Lyndle Seaman, Erin Seaman, Ian Butler, Drew Butler, Timothy Seaman, and Harvey Seaman; Carol Fischer, her niece who lived with Evie’s family as a teen and her children, Jake Wright, Ginnie Cai Powell, and Anni Lermer, who she considered her grandchildren. The family invites donations in Evolyn's name to St. Barnabas. All who knew her or her family may attend the funeral service and interment of her ashes, officiated by Reverend Mother Natalie Van Kirk, on Thursday, June 6 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, 22W415 Butterfield Road, Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
