Zeeland, Michigan | Age 89


Evelyn Edith (Monette Wcisel) Wozniak, 89, formerly of Long Rapids, MI, passed away August 21, 2017 in Holland, Michigan after an extended illness.

She was born Edith Evelyn Monette to Antoine and Elsie Luella Jenkins Monette on May 17, 1928. After her birth mother passed away less than a week later, she was soon adopted by Anthony and Elizabeth Wcisel, and her name changed to Evelyn Edith Wcisel.

After graduating from Alpena High School, Evelyn attended Nazareth College Nursing School in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she graduated in 1951. She worked as a nurse at several places to include Herman Kiefer and Henry Ford Hospitals in Detroit, and Alpena General Hospital. She retired as a Registered Nurse from the Alpena County Public Health Department.

Evelyn married Joseph Anthony Wozniak in 1952, and they lived in Long Rapids with their seven children and Evelyn's loving mother, Elizabeth, "Busia", who helped take care of the children.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, and sons Stephen Thomas Wozniak and William Joseph Wozniak.

She is survived by her children: Lawrence Anthony Wozniak of Summerville, SC, Martin John Wozniak of Southport, NC, Juanita Jo (Rex) Hodge of Zeeland, MI, Lynn Elizabeth Wozniak of Wilmington, NC and Monica Anne (Rose) Wozniak of Bowie, MD; grandchildren: Erica Wozniak, Stephen (Keiko) Wozniak, Shannon Wozniak, Isaac Timm, Christopher Hodge and Daniel Hodge; great-grandchildren: Elaina Simpson, Marley Simpson, and Peyton Wozniak.

A memorial mass and celebration of Evelyn's life will take place at a later date.

The family would like to thank the staff at Medilodge of Holland, Michigan and Hospice of Holland. Memorial donations may be given in her name to Hospice of Holland.

Evelyn loved to read and to listen to the birds sing. She told her children to touch people's lives and make a difference. Her favorite quote was "To thine own self be true".
