Evelyn Marie Chapman went to be with Jesus on February 18, 2019. She was born on July 06, 1928 in Fort Wayne, Indiana to the late Claude and Flora (Hagerty) Hurraw. Evelyn worked for years at General Electric and retired from Seyferts after 33 years of service. The most important aspect of her life was caring for her 3 children. She made it a priority to take her children to church even if that meant walking two miles to worship. She was a lover of the old hymns and sang them with gusto. Evelyn loved the outdoors, and sharing them with her children and grandchildren. She was caring and generous to everyone she met. She loved to read, play cards and conquer all crosswords and puzzles. She is survived by her husband, Edgar Chapman, sister Gwen Raber, daughter Deborah Parker, son Charles (Mary) Chapman, son-in-law Jeffrey Studebaker, many loved nieces and nephews, 9 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her daughter Barbara Jean Studebaker, brothers Howard and Guy Hurraw. There will be a celebration of Evelyn’s life on March 1, 2019 at 12:00 pm at the Pathway Community Church 11910 Shearwater Run Fort Wayne, Indiana 46845. Memorial contributions may be made to The Hope Center on Hobson Road.
