Evelyn Mick, 1935-2020

Evelyn Mick, 85, of La Porte, Ind. passed away Monday, July 27, 2020 at her home.

She was born May 10, 1935 in La Porte to Thomas and Carey (Jadszczak) Kuta.

A resident of La Porte for many years, Evelyn worked at Vogue Cleaners in Hammond, retiring in 1987.  She came from a large family and because of her caring heart, she was a worrier, always concerned about others. Evelyn had a special love for her family and always put them ahead of herself.  Her joys in life were taking care of her home, going to garage sales, playing bingo and cards, and doing puzzles. She enjoyed cooking and baking as well. Evelyn liked listening to Elvis, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Lawrence Welk. She was blessed to have a special companionship over the last several years with Phil Mazciviech.

(Cindy) Mick, Jr. of Scottsborough, Ala., Tony Kuta and Raymond Kuta; daughters, Evelyn (Eddie) Schwitters of Lowell, Ind., Roberta (Tom) Bass of Summerville, S.C., and Janice Messinio of Griffith, Ind.; grandchildren, Lacee (Josh), Brett (Mary), Alex (Lauren), Tyler (Brooklyn), Alisia (David), Antonio (Marina), Alina; nine great-grandchildren; brothers, Joe, Richard, Stanley and Sonny Kuta; and sisters, Deloris Dusseau and Ilene Pointon.
