SALEM - Evelyn M. Leipply, 88, passed away at 8:45 am on November 9, 2021 at Salem west nursing home due to COVID-19 complications.
Evelyn was born on July 6th, 1933 as Evelyn Mae Metzler to Cora and Paul Metzler of Newton Falls, Ohio at the family farm. She is preceded in death by her sisters Selma (Metzler) Leipply, Ellen Metzler, Mary (Metzler) Houston, and brothers Arthur Metzler and James Metzler.
Evelyn married Robert Roland Leipply from Petersburg, Ohio on July 28th, 1956 and raised four children (Robin, Janet, Douglas and Mark) born within five years and five days of each other at their home in North Lima. She was preceded in death by her husband Robert (2003), and survived by her son Robin Robert Leipply who died three hours after his mother (see accompanying obituary) of the North Lima address, a daughter Janet Mae Leipply Koran of Columbiana, Ohio, son Douglas Arthur Leipply of Colorado Springs, CO and son Mark James Leipply of Struthers.
Evelyn decided to forego other career opportunities to become a lifelong housewife and mom providing love, care and nourishment to her loving husband and four children. Her family meals were a staple of life in the Leipply family household.
