Elizabeth Ann Evanoski (87) of Youngstown, Ohio, passed away
Wednesday, January 26, 2022 surrounded by her four children.
Known as “Betty” by everyone who loved her, she was born on November 2, 1934 in New
Castle, PA. She was the daughter of the late Anna (Shultz) and Anton Kos.
After graduating from New Castle High School in 1952, Betty worked before becoming a wife
and mother of her proud children. She is survived by Kathe (Frank) Mazzarino of Memphis, TN,
Walt (Barb) Evanoski of Houston, TX, Ed (Jill) Evanoski of Wildwood, MO, and Janet (Rocky)
Page of Canfield, OH.
Betty, an excellent cook and baker, was certified in 1982 as a medical assistant but ultimately
worked retail before retiring to babysit her granddaughter. Betty leaves a living legacy in her four
grandchildren, Caitlin (Winston) Douglas of Atlanta, Michael Evanoski of Houston, Grace
Evanoski of Wildwood and Lexie Page of Canfield. She is also survived by her first great
grandchild, James Douglas, of Atlanta.
She was a proud member of OCCHA- where she was twice voted Mother of the Year. She was
also active in the American Legion Auxiliary and Card Club as well as Eagles Posts 3298 and
213. She was a devout member of St. Christine’s Church in Youngstown for over six decades.
Betty lived a life of kindness and servitude toward every living being. There was never a dull
moment when Betty was around. She had many friends who all loved her. She was full of life
and never turned down an opportunity to travel somewhere new. There are not enough words to
describe her impact on this world.
She was preceded in death by her brothers, John, Carl, Robert, and Anthony Kos. She also leaves
a lasting imprint on her nieces and nephews.
A private family service will be held at St. Christine’s. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made
to the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley.
