Last Updated on April 6, 2024 by Fisher Funeral Chapel

Clara Evelyn Sizemore, 89, of Logansport, was a devoted and determined daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great grandmother, employee, and friend. She was surrounded by her family when she passed away Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette. 

Born September 3, 1934, in Fulton County, Indiana. She was the daughter of the late Dewey and Anna (McGrew) Centers. 

On June 5, 1964, at the Helm Street Church of God, she was united in marriage with the love of her life, the late Arlis Sizemore.

 Clara Evelyn (Evie) was a hard-working factory worker at the former RBM, Hamilton Standard, Essex, and White Rodgers factory for 45 years. She continued working at Summit Circuit an additional two years before retiring. Evie attended the Country Kitchen Cake Decorating School in 1974 and became an amazing cake decorator. For over forty years she baked all kinds of cakes for birthdays, graduations, and weddings; not just for her big family, but for many other people. 

She was an excellent quilter, making beautiful quilts for each of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Evie also made quilts annually and donated them to Riley Children’s Hospital. She donated blood on a regular basis, and for many years she helped to collect money for the American Cancer Society. Evie and Arlis had raised a blended family, yours, mine, and ours. She had five children from her previous marriage, he had two from his previous marriage, and together they had one child. Evie and Arlis both worked very hard providing the best they could for their eight children. They took a family camping trip every year and traveled all over the country. They enjoyed gardening, picking berries for canning jelly and making pies, and loved mushroom hunting every spring. Evie and Arlis were very creative and talented. They worked together making beautiful wooden crafts to give as Christmas gifts. 

Evie had great faith and trusted her Heavenly Father daily. She was instrumental in compiling a genealogy for her family and she was adamant about attending family reunions. She had a green thumb and could grow flowers like no other. 

Evie was a member of the American Legion Post 60 Ladies Auxiliary and a member of the VFW. For many years Evie and Arlis traveled to Company D Army reunions all across the United States. In 1993 they visited Italy and toured the area where Arlis served during World War II.
