Evelyn A. Trapasso
December 9, 1939 – December 19, 2021
Evelyn A. Trapasso (Atwell), 82, 0f Warrensburg, NY, daughter of the late Ralph and Grace Atwell, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2021.
Evelyn was born on December 9, 1939 in Cheever, NY. She graduated from Westport Central School. Evelyn married the love of her life, Anthony Trapasso on September 19, 1958, after meeting at a roller rink. Evelyn began her career in adult care at Hallmark Nursing Home, followed by many years at Countryside Adult Home bringing kindness and compassion to all the residents. Throughout the years Evelyn could always be found in the stands at school sporting events and activities to watch her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with pride. She loved sitting on her porch, with her cat Lilly, listening to her wind chimes, on the lookout for cardinals, listening to Johnny Cash and most importantly spending time with her family. Many people have enjoyed Evelyn’s famous Michigan sauce and you always knew the rolls were done when the smoke detector was going off. She was known to her family as Nana T and to everyone else as Mrs. T. Evelyn has finally gotten her wish, to be with her beloved son Rodney.
The family would like to thank the staff at Countryside and Elderwood for their care and compassion.
Evelyn was predeceased by her stepmother Helen Atwell; son Rodney Lane Trapasso, son-in-law Teddy L. Ackley, brothers Ralph Atwell Jr. and Donald Atwell; sister Helen Shedd.
