Evelyn Doris Uhl, 92, was born August 16, 1921, at Smithland, Iowa and died on June 2, 2014. She was the daughter of Nelson and Mildred (Dowling) Sherman. She was preceded in death by husband, Melvin F. Uhl; son, Ronald; daughter, Sindea Gilbert; and 4 grandchildren, John, Kim, Jeffery and Travis; and sister, Sharon Lloyd, and is survived by daughters, Sharon (Dave) Mesker of Las Vegas, NV and Glennis (Bill) Schnieder of Stanton, California; and son Terry (Devera) Uhl, of Omaha, NE; 15 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren' and nine great great grandchildren. Evelyn was raised on a farm near Grant Center, Iowa where she attended grade school. After graduating from Smithland High School in 1940, she married Melvin F. Uhl of Mapleton, IA on June 4th. They were married 58 years before Melvin's death in 1998. The couple first farmed near Climbing Hill, IA, before moving to a 160 acre farm near Grant Center, IA. They remained on the farm for 37 years raising their five children: Sharon, Glennis, Ronald, Terry and Sindea, before moving to Onawa, IA in 1981. In 2007, Evelyn moved from Moville, IA to Omaha to be close to her son after having been diagnosed with dementia. Evelyn enjoyed playing cards, cooking, sewing, watching her children in numerous activities, dancing and socializing. She was always smiling and had the most infectious laugh. She loved engaging strangers in conversation; once missing a flight during a layover due to this wonderful attribute of her personality. This delightful lady will be missed. Pallbearers are Neil, Roger, Kevin, and Mark Lloyd, Bryan Uhl, and Gene Hilton.
