Evelyn Bobbermin (Evy, Maus, Mausilein, Evymaus, Eba, Voby, and Vobs) was born to Otto W. and Hedwig Bobbermin in New York City on April 13, 1933; died August 30, 2021, in Holladay, Utah. She was a bright and loving child and started asking for a baby brother at a very young age. Finally, almost 9 years after her birth she became the big sister to Otto. She was the best big sister any brother could ever ask for. They were a support to each other, and their relationship was deeply meaningful for both of them through all of their lives.
Evy was conscientious and a good student. She had many interests; and was a lifelong learner. Several years after entering the work-force she became a key-punch operator. The computer programmers preferred her to key-punch their programs because she made fewer errors without verifying her work, than any other key-punch operator even after theirs was verified. That same attention to detail was characteristic of her efforts in all of her work situations. She was always liked by her supervisors, coworkers, and customers.
Evy loved the color purple, dark chocolate covered marzipan, cats, music, Sylvester and Tweety, Snoopy and Woodstock, watching baseball and basketball, reading, and playing sudoku. But most of all, she loved the people in her life. When Eba lived in Brooklyn she acquired a niece, Debbie, and a nephew, Nino. She was a loving influence in their lives. They are grateful for her affection and support. It was very difficult for her when she left them, and other special friends to move to Salt Lake City. She was grateful that they were able to remain connected by telephone through the years.
When Otto married Kathy, she got not just the sister she always wanted, but a nephew, Ian, as well. The two of them had a great time together. In warm weather they would walk down the street to 7-Eleven for Slurpees. As they walked back home, they would detour into all the sprinklers so they could “GET WET!” They also invented “V Speak”, Va Vanguage Vere Vevery Vord Vad Vo Vart Vith V. Vo Vhe Vecame Voby Vor Vobs Vand Ve Vecame Vinny. She attended as many of his games in various sports as she could, and once again, was a loving influence.
Evy was predeceased by her parents, her aunt Nathelle, and her best friend, Jean. At her death she is survived by her brother Otto, her sister(-in-law) Kathy, nephew Ian, niece-in-law Stephanie, great-niece Isabella, great-nephew Samuel, cousin Cindy and her family, Debbie and Nino and their families, and many others who also considered her family.
We would like to thank all the wonderful health care workers at Intermountain Medical Center, City Creek Post Acute, and especially at Holladay Healthcare Center who helped her so much before she went on to a joyful reunion on the other side of the veil.
There will be no viewing. A private graveside service will be held in Salt Lake City Cemetery on Friday, September 10th at 12 noon. Enter from the 11th Avenue gate and bear to the right. She would love to see family and any friends wearing purple at the graveside if you have any!
Dear Otto, Kathy, Ian and family.
I am so sorry for your loss. For the first 23 years of my life Eba was my biggest cheerleader, now she is my angel. I will miss her so very much. I hope you all find comfort in her memories, and remember now you have an angel looking over you at all time.
