Evelyn E. “Evie” Colbey (Mieskiel), 101, of Lancaster, passed away peacefully on October 29, 2023.
Evie was many things but above all else, she was a great mom and a remarkable Gramma. She loved a nice, hot, black cup of coffee and a swig of Jim Beam now and again. She enjoyed watching Jeopardy and when she was able, loved to take long walks.
She is survived by 3 sons, Charles R. (Suzanne), of Macedon N.Y., Preston J. (Patricia), of Shinglehouse, and Gilbert S. (Patricia), of Lancaster. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Christopher Colbey, Tricia DiVirgilio (Peter), Brian Colbey (Lindsay), Shauna Khan (Alim), Travis Colbey (Lisa Newton), Megan Booz (Matthew), Chase Colbey (Jessye) and Kelly Passmore (Marshall); a nephew, Mike Smith along with 20 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brother, Albert Mieskiel, her sister, Jean Smith, a daughter, Donna Jo, and her husband of almost 58 years, Charles.
A visitation will be held at Furman Home for Funerals, Leola, on November 6, 2023 from 1-3 pm as well as from 4-8 pm at her residence. A private funeral will be held at a later date in Westmoreland, NY.
