October 26, 1928 - December 7, 2019
Evelyn Stella Bergeron (October 26, 1928 - December 7, 2019) Evelyn Stella Bergeron, formally of Indian Orchard, departed this earth with the love and care of her family close by her side in thought and in presence on December 7, 2019 at the age of 91 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. She was born Evelyn Stella Severyn in Indian Orchard, MA on October 26, 1928 to Walter Severyn and Stella Golba Severyn and soon afterward baptized into the Roman Catholic faith at The Immaculate Conception Church in Indian Orchard where she also received her first communion, confirmation and on September 11, 1948, where she married the love of her life, devoted and ever-caring, Arthur Gerald Bergeron. She is now reunited with her husband Arthur, whom she lovingly referred to as “Hon”, in the transcending graces of their heavenly father and blessed son Jesus Christ. Evelyn lived a fulfilling life, graduating from Commerce High School, Springfield, in 1946 and shortly gaining employment at the Springfield Telephone Company. But that was not where she had found her most enterprising role as an outstanding member of the community. She managed Friendly’s Ice Cream in Wilbraham for over 30 years, extending her generous and ingratiating manner to anyone and everyone who had dined there. As much as Evelyn loved her ice cream and sharing what she loved with her customers, she also loved swimming. She and Arthur spent mornings in their later years at the Wilbraham Senior Center where she became a founding member of the Scantic Valley YMCA. During her life in Indian Orchard, Arthur and Evelyn raised three beautiful girls to whom she was a wonderful and outstanding mother: Debora Angus of Rehoboth, DE, Christine (Michael) Buckley of Murrysville, PA and Celeste (Daniel) Bryz-Gornia of Ventnor, NJ. This is Evelyn’s and Arthur’s greatest achievement and continues to be as two more generations carry out her legacy while holding the memory of her close to their hearts. Her 11 grandchildren: Kristin (Travis) Westmoreland, Kimberly (Michael) Reilly, Kathleen Angus, Sean (Julia) Buckley, Erin (Jeff) Vangura, Brian Buckley, Daniel (Alisa) Bryz-Gornia, Chris, Erika, Walter and Mary Bryz-Gornia. And her five great grandchildren: Bodie and Brooks Reilly, Colton and Asher Vangura and Joshua Buckley. She was “Granny” to all of them and they will all remember her that way. Evelyn was a caring and loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother with the intuitive capacity of extending that love to her family whenever possible and while doing it, she was always alongside her husband, Arthur, with whom she now rests. The memorial service will take place at The Immaculate Conception Church in Indian Orchard, MA on Saturday, January 25th at 11:00 AM, with a visitation with family at 10:30 am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations in Evelyn S. Bergeron’s name to the Alzheimer's Association: 8180 Greensboro Drive, Suite 400, McLean, VA 22102.
