Evelyn Annette Etzler Ahlgrim, age 86, was born to Paul and Hedwig Leopold Etzler in Hallettsville, Texas. She married Charles Lawrence Ahlgrim, from Columbus, Texas, on October 11, 1955 and they moved to Houston, Texas. She was blessed with 3 children, 8 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, her brother Hubert Etzler and his wife Margaret, her sisters Regina Pagel and her husband Don, Adela Grahmann and her husband Alvin, Helen Kresta and her husband Bennie and Lillie Sitka and her husband Leon.

Evelyn is survived by her brother Arthur Etzler and his wife Rosemary, her son Richard Ahlgrim and his wife Becky, her granddaughter Hilary Barton and her husband Phil, her great-grandchildren Lucia and Paxton; her grandson Zachary Ahlgrim; her daughter Judy Ahlgrim, her granddaughter Shelley Hicks, her great-granddaughter Catherine, her granddaughter Brittni Crowhurst; her son Danny Ahlgrim and his wife Carrie, her grandson Joshua Ahlgrim and his wife Elena, her great-grandchildren Anthony, Angie, Aidan, grandsons Blane , Brandon and Shane Ahlgrim.

She was an active member of St. Matthew The Evangelist Catholic Church, where she attended mass weekly. Over the years she was a member of the 50 Plus Club and helped at the annual bazaar. Evelyn enjoyed bingo, bunco and dominoes, especially 42. She liked taking the bus with her friends to the casinos and considered any day she broke even to be a great day. Her motto was “You got to bet the max to win big!”

Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, whether that was playing games or traveling with them. She loved having them all together and even made it possible for everyone to spend a few holidays at the beach and in the hill country. She made holidays particularly fun by providing prizes for all to win while playing fun and silly games. Easter at her house was particularly fun and everyone enjoyed the Easter egg hunt and ball games. It was especially important to Evelyn that everyone knew they were loved equally. Her generous gifts were just one of the ways she showed this. She was a great cook and her dressing, potato salad, homemade noodle soup, angel food cake, custard pie, banana nut bread, cinnamon roll and coffee cake will be extremely missed.

Home is where the heart is and hers was landscaped beautifully. She enjoyed working in her flower beds and around her house and even received yard of the month.

Public visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Pat H. Foley Funeral Home in Houston, Texas with a rosary in her honor starting at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be said at St. Matthew The Evangelist Catholic Church on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Evelyn’s life.

Evelyn will be laid to rest at Memorial Oaks Cemetery on Interstate 10, Houston, Texas next to her husband Charles Lawrence. The family welcomes donations, in her memory, to St. Matthew The Evangelist Catholic Church, 9915 Hollister St., Houston, TX, 77040
