Obituary

Juliana (Julie) McEvers, age 89, resident of Fort Myers, FL passed away September 5, 2018. She was born in 1929 in Toledo, Ohio to Alton and Alyne (Wegman) Miller. She is survived by her husband David C. McEvers and daughters Cheryl (Dwight) Cameron, Jill (Vic) Dombrowski, Marcia McEvers, grandchildren Chrissy (Jarrett) Shoemaker, Christopher and Eric Dombrowski and great grand-daughter Payton Shoemaker and numerous nephews. She was pre-deceased by her parents, her son David S. McEvers, one sister and one brother.

She graduated from DeVilbiss High School in 1947 where she was given the award for being the outstanding athlete. She was inducted into the DeVilbiss High School Hall of Fame in 1994. She attended Wittenberg University from 1947-1951. While at Wittenberg, she played field hockey, basketball, softball, badminton and was a swimmer. She was President of the Women’s Athletic Association, was junior class Vice President and met her future husband David McEvers there. She was inducted into the Wittenberg Athletic Hall of Honor in 1988.

She was a Physical Education and Health Teacher in the public schools in Michigan for 20 years and then after receiving her Master’s Degree from Wayne State University, she spent nine years on the faculty where she retired from. She was an active participant in leading the girlscout movement. She loved stamp collecting and researching genealogy. She began long distance running at age 49 and ran in 106 races between 1978 and 1984. She received numerous awards for running and gold medals while swimming in the Senior Olympics.

She designed and then had her dream retirement home built on Lake Columbia, MI in 1981 and began spending some of the winter months in Fort Myers, FL. She eventually downsized and moved to Adrian, MI during the summer months and in 2016 moved full time to Fort Myers where she was a member of Christ Lutheran Church. Per her request, there will be no Memorial Service, however, in lieu of flowers, she would appreciate a donation to St. Jude in Memphis, TN in honor of Christopher’s survival.

    This is beautiful, nicely written and very informative. I never knew your mom was such a power house athlete! Seems that she was a very strong woman who had a positive influence on many young lives. Thanks so much for sharing these insights into her life. Continued prayers for peace, strength, and courage as you remember her goodness! ❤️
