Soldotna resident Evie Mae Mohr died Saturday, Dec. 8, 2007, at Stonebrook, an assisted living facility in Soldotna. She was 96.
She will be buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Montgomery, Ala., alongside her husband, Jacob Mohr.
A celebration of her life will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, at Peninsula Grace Brethren Church, 44175 Kalifornsky Beach Road in Soldotna. Pastor Dan Thornton will officiate.
Mrs. Mohr was born Aug. 2, 1911, to Frank and Ella Moses in Riderville, Ala. In 1979 she retired from nursing to move to Alaska to be near her family. She lived at Chuda House for 20 years before moving to Stonebrook for health reasons. She attended Peninsula Grace Brethren Church, where she taught Sunday school for many years.
"Aside from her career as a registered nurse, Evie also taught art and found great pleasure in painting with oils, well into her 80s," her family said.
Mrs. Mohr was preceded in death by her husband; nephew, Charlie Wheat; and niece, Shirley Wheat.
She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Bird and her husband, Dean, of Kenai; grandchildren, Julie Bird Tallent and her husband, Michael, of Anchorage and Brian Bird and his wife, Mandy, of Soldotna; great-grandchild, Ayla Tallent of Anchorage; and many nieces and nephews in Montgomery.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made in memory of Mrs. Mohr to the Charlie Wheat Endowment Foundation, 317 S. College St. Auburn, AL 36849.
Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
