Evelyn Fromel Yourstowsky

August 9, 1925 ~ October 6, 2021 (age 96)


GIRARD – Evelyn Fromel Yourstowsky, 96, passed away peacefully Wednesday evening, Oct. 6, 2021, with family by her side after a long and fulfilling life.

Evelyn was born Aug. 9, 1925, in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Nicholas and Pauline Fromel, and lived most of her life in Girard.

She was a graduate of The Rayen School, and was a homemaker who devoted much of her adult life to raising and caring for her family. She also worked outside the home for Youngstown State University in the catalog department at Maag Library for over 25 years, retiring in the early 1990s.

Mrs. Yourstowsky was a lifelong, active member of Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church in Youngstown. She sang in the choir, belonged to the Rosary Society and the St. Anne Guild, where she was the treasurer, and was a volunteer at the parish's bingo games and with the pyrohy fundraisers. She was also the organizer of the baking of kolachi and paska at the church, and she and her late husband were well-known for maintaining the beautiful flowers on the church grounds.

Evelyn enjoyed bus trips with her friends in the church group, and she enjoyed world travel with her husband, taking trips to Ukraine, Vatican City, Italy, Israel, Mexico, Canada, and cruising through Alaska.

She was a huge fan of the Cleveland Indians and never missed watching a game. For exercise, Evelyn was an avid walker.

Her husband of 35 years, Charles Yourstowsky, whom she married Sept. 15, 1956, in Holy Trinity Church, passed away Oct. 28, 1991.

Evelyn leaves five children; sons, Dr. Charles (Mary Lynn) Yourstowsky of Canfield and Atty. Ronald (Diane) Yourstowsky of Canfield; daughters, Janet (John) Pierko of Niles, Diane (Dr. Robert) Wilden of Avon Lake, and Carol (Brian) Lebo of Broadview Heights; 12 grandchildren, Stephanie, Christina, and John Charles Pierko, Rachel (Christian) Foisy, Natalie Wilden, Eric, Melanie, Allison, and Julianne Lebo, and Matthew, Michael, and Marissa Yourstowsky; a brother, John (Arnie) Fromel of Youngstown; a sister, Julia Simko of Poland; many nieces and nephews; and many extended family members.
