Sara-Eve “Evie” Monroe Ronald, of Houston, passed away on Monday, the 18th of November 2019, after a brief yet courageous struggle with lung cancer. She was 78 years of age.
Evie was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, where she also completed post-graduate work in Computer Science.
Evie began her professional career as a Project Manager with RCA in New York City, and enjoyed great success in major account sales with UNIVAC, Tandem Computers, and Fujitsu (Siemens). She was also a licensed Interior Designer. An avid golfer and world traveler, Evie most recently visited London, Lisbon, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bali, and Buenos Aires – all within the past year!

She contributed her many talents and boundless energy to charitable organizations across Houston, including Houston Symphony League, Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary, Moores School of Music Society, Houston Ballet Guild, and Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo (International Committee). Evie was also a very proud and active member of St. Martin's Episcopal Church.
Evie is preceded in death by her loving husband of 27 years, Adam Macnab Ronald, Jr. She is survived by remarkable friends across the world, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was especially thankful for the devoted care of friends Mary Bell, Mark and Marilyn Hughes, Nicole Mordy, and Helen Shaffer who filled her final months with love, laughter and prayer.
A memorial service and celebration of her life is to be conducted at three o’clock in the afternoon on Friday, the 6th of December, at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, 717 Sage Road in Houston.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Evie during my tenure at the Houston Club wherein she made wonderful contributions to the club and its membership.
We soon discovered that Evie used to work with a competitor of my (now) ex-husband (also British) - she proudly let me know that she had won the business and that she could teach him a thing or two. I loved her immediately!
Evie was a grand lady with dignity and poise. She held close the deepest love for her late husband, speaking of him often. They are now together again ...
You will be missed, Evie.

Evie was very proper and always willing to donate her time and talents to the Houston Symphony. I will cherish the times we volunteered together and have such fond memories of Evie. The Houston Symphony League has lost a dear friend.
