Our beautiful Matriarch, Evelyn Kasper Piccin, 94, passed peacefully in her home in Lansing, Ohio, Friday morning, October 29th, 2021.  She was born December 4th, 1926, in Blaine, Ohio, the daughter of the late Apolonia (Niekro) and Andrew Kasper.  She was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.


Evelyn was preceded in death by her loving husband, Alfred “Fritz,” and an infant son, Alfred (Freddie) Piccin.  She was also preceded in death by her three brothers, Chester (Marie), Alex (Marge), Joseph (Mary Ann), and her sister Franciszka “Francis” Kasper.


Evelyn’s passing leaves a vast void for her seven living children:  Sharon Piccin Acosta, Steven “Butch” (Sharon) Piccin, Nina (Warren) Lenz, Polly (Michael) Bianconi, Susan (Michael) Baker, Louis (Lisa) Piccin and John (Beth Ann) Piccin.  She is sadly missed by her 13 grandchildren:  Christa (Josh) Prati, Rebecca (Steve) Cook, Theresa Piccin (Michael Johnson), Jayme (Adam) Verslype, Eric (Katlin) Baker, Lauren (Adam) Kirby, Joseph Baker, Lindsey Baker and her Fiancee Chase Harler , Lucas Piccin, Rachel (Jordan) Kuhn, Adam Piccin, Gino Bianconi, and William Piccin.  Evelyn was the proud great-grandmother of Sofia Morant & Natalie Johnson, Molly & Jacob Verslype, Stella & Roscoe “R.J.” Cook, Mckinley & Miles Baker, Kallen & Krew Kirby, and Ella & Wyatt Kuhn.


One of the first female Post Masters hired by the United States Postal Service, Evelyn was a recipient of a certificate signed by President John Kennedy.  She proudly served full-time as a US Post Master for 28 years at the Lansing (Ohio) Post Office.  She retired in 1987.


Evelyn was sharp, witty, fun, and devoted. Her most precious commodity was her family. Evelyn deeply loved and cherished her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Family meant everything to her.  Whenever family or friends stopped by to visit, her face lit up the room.  Evelyn had a very generous and kind heart.  She was a fabulous cook and could even make shoe leather taste like a gourmet meal!


Evelyn was also extremely proud of Vino di Piccin, a Winery and Tasting House in Lansing, Ohio, established by her children in memory of the Piccin family.  She looked forward to visiting the Tasting House to chat and reminisce with family, friends and patrons.  Evelyn also enjoyed an occasional glass of “Fritz’s Red,” her favorite sweet red Concord wine.


Over the past several years, Evelyn received loving assistance from her companion including her friend, Brenda, who dubbed Evelyn as “The Queen.” Her other caregivers/companions were included Mella, Julie, Sharon, Sue, Katie, Jacci and Sherry.


So very many people had a special relationship with Evelyn.  When someone tell her, “I love you,” her infamous response was always, “I love you more!” She is sadly missed by all who knew her.
