Evangeline F. Zager, our beloved mother, age 91, of Shakopee, passed away on March 31, 2021.
Throughout life she loved watching the Twins games, never missing a game on TV and staying up for the extra innings! Her laugh was contagious, she was a strong willed lady, and lived a positive but simple life! She was always on board with dessert before dinner!
Evangeline is survived by her three sons, Steven (Melissa), Thomas (Cheryl), and Dave; three daughters, Ann Zager, Cynthia Zager, and Mary (Jim) Monnens; six grandchildren, Michael (Nicole) Zager, Melissa (Brad) Theis, Matthew (Samantha) Zager, Mariah Monnens, Kari (Ryan) Olson, and Maddison Zager; six great grandchildren; and sister, LaVonne Weinzierl.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Theresa Weinzierl; sisters, Elvira Notermann, Bernice Menden, Marie Marschall, Lucille Notermann, and Frances Grommesch; brothers, Clarence Weinzierl and Florian Weinzierl.
A celebration of life is planned for Saturday, June 26, with visitation from 12 to 3:30 p.m., followed by a memorial service at 3:30 p.m., both at McNearney-Schmidt Funeral and Cremation, 1220 3rd Ave. East, Shakopee, 952-445-2755.
