Evelyn Elizabeth Sitz

November 24, 1938 ~ January 27, 2024 (age 85) 85 Years Old


Evelyn “Tootsie” Sitz, 85, of Meridian, died peacefully Saturday, January 27, 2024, surrounded by her family. An open house in her honor will be held at 976 Stanhope Dr, Meridian ID 83646 on Sunday, February 18th from 1pm-4pm.
Evelyn was born on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1938, in National City, California. She met the love of her life, Rodney “Butch” Sitz, at a roller-skating rink and they married on March 29, 1957. They raised four rowdy children, and together they enjoyed square dancing, camping, and touring on their motorcycle.
Evelyn was a strong woman. She lost her husband to cancer in 1991 and then immediately faced her own battle with breast cancer. She fought hard against both, and in these moments proved her resilience. She refused to let these massive heartaches define her, and instead chose to live each day with intention. She traveled the world, spoiled her grandkids, and found respite in the creative arts as a skilled baker, cake decorator, and painter.
Evelyn retired from St. Alphonsus and became active in monthly bunco and book clubs, as well as the Red Hat Society where she served as Vice Queen of the Jazzy Reds. She made long lasting friendships in these groups and will be remembered for her humor and wit. Evelyn was the life of the party and loved a good prank – she would do anything to make people laugh.
Evelyn is survived by her siblings James (Marsha) Mann, Marjorie (Jim) Goff, Robert Mann, Daniel (Carole) Mann, and Sally Mann; a daughter-in-law Rebecca Sitz, a son Thomas (Diane) Sitz, a daughter Laurie (Kevin) Davis, and a son Paul Sitz; her grandchildren R.C. (Shay), Roxanne (Mike), Matthew, Amanda (Jeremy), Brandon (Katie), Erin, Nathan (Holli), and Keesha; and her great-grandchildren Brodi, Bentley, Barrett, Ariana, Gage, Quinn, Willow, Zoey, Cohen, Audrina, and Weiland. Evelyn is preceded in death by her husband Rodney Sitz; her son Robert Sitz ; her parents John Daniel and Bertha Pearl Mann; and her siblings Mary Jane Wilkes, Katherine Kobes, and Lillian Patricia Alterman.
