Evelyn L. Barg was called home to Heaven to be with her Lord on Wednesday, 5/13/2020. She died peacefully at the Assisted Living facility in Kingman, Arizona, where she resided for the past 2 1/2 years.
Evelyn was born on June 16, 1927 in Milwaukee, WI. She was the daughter and only child of Stephen and Clara (Druminski) Martz. Evelyn grew up in Milwaukee where she attended Lutheran elementary and high school. She received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin and taught chemistry for a few years before marrying Donald E. Barg. The marriage was blessed with two children.
Several relocations meant living in various parts of the U.S., finally settling in Liverpool, NY for 63 years. Milwaukee was frequently visited over the years and always close to Evelyn’s heart. Central to her life, though, was Evelyn’s love for her Savior. She and her husband were founding and very active members of Cross of Christ Lutheran Church in Liverpool, NY. Since moving to Arizona in 2017, she became a member of Kingman’s Cross of Christ Lutheran Church.
Evelyn was a sweet, kind, gentle and quiet woman who was loved by all her knew her. In addition to church activities, her interests included being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, reading, travel, and spending time with friends and family, especially at the Barg family camp at Lorton Lake.
Evelyn is survived by her Daughter Gale A. (Michael) Dom; Daughter-in-Law Deborah Barg,; Grandchildren Michael (Amy) Barg, Gregory (Stephanie) Barg, Kelley Barg; and 7 Great Grandchildren Jackson, Tucker, Maxwell, Audrey, Ellery, Madelyn, and Kymani Barg. She is preceded in death by her Husband Donald E. Barg and Son Douglas A. Barg.
