Evelyn Frances Haren passed away suddenly March 3, 2021. She was born to the late Frank and Frances Smith on May 2, 1940 in Youngstown, Ohio. The oldest of five girls, she attended Youngstown South High School, then became a licensed Registered Nurse from Mercy School of Nursing in Canton, Ohio the summer of 1961. She married the love of her life, William “Bill” Haren December 2, 1961. They shared an absolutely amazing marriage creating a life story lasting almost 60 years. To know Ev, you knew her love and strong devotion to her faith and family. Her true happiness was in the “little things”. One of her passions was to travel anywhere, any time with dad. Mom also liked to bowl, play cards, scrabble and creating memories with her family. Mom was also known for her quick smile, politeness, and respect for everyone. She lived her life with love and constant, eternal hope. Everyone will miss her infamous “notes” and words of encouragement. She will be sorely missed; however, her memories will linger on long after her footprints in the sand are gone. We love you.
She is survived by husband, Bill; children; Chuck, Ken, Linda (Todd), Bob; seven grandchildren; one great-grandchild; sisters, Kathy (Chuck), Theresa (Ralph), Dot (Harry) and Anita (Steve).
Services will be held at a future date. Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family online at www.paqueletfalk.com

Evelyn was a very kind and good nurse. She had a great smile that made your day. we were lucky to have her work at Saint Joseph. She has many residents ready to welcome her to heaven. So sorry for your loss
Evelyn was truly a lovely lady. I unfortunately did not get to spend much time with her having only brief visits with her when she visited my dear friend Linda her daughter. During these brief visits I saw a giving loving woman with a warm hand and open heart available to everyone. I know God will welcome her warmly for peacefully rest in his endless arms. The hard part is for those that will miss her and they are many. I believe Evelyn’s kind spirit would ask us to be kind and help each other through love
My family and I wish to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the entire family. We love you.

What a loss to all her who loved her.
Evelyn was my classmate in nursing school.
I remember her gentleness and warmth and caring for all. I don’t think I ever saw her mad.
My deepest sympathy to Bill and her family.
Growing up, I always enjoyed staying over night with Bob at the Haren house. Mrs. Haren was always so sweet and caring to us, always with a smile on her face. And Mr. Haren made world-class ham sandwiches!
I remember around age 10 going on a trip in the Haren car to some friend/family member’s lake. We got McDonald’s on the way, and I ended up spilling ketch-up all over the back seat. Somehow, Mrs. Haren maintained her sweet demeanor!
My prayers are with the entire family with your loss. Her kindness truly lifted up everyone around her.
