Evelyn L. Izzo

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Evelyn L. Izzo, 95, formerly of McAllister Drive, passed away Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the Home of the Good Shepherd in Wilton. 

Born on Oct. 30, 1922 in Saratoga Springs, she was the daughter of the late Nelson and Rose (Rock) Derlick, Sr., and a lifelong city resident.

Evelyn was a typical “greatest generation” post-war mother. She and her veteran husband built a life surrounding a family of four children in a warm, loving home. They both provided a nurturing atmosphere, complete with annual summer camping vacations, holiday picnics and celebrations with extended family. Balancing finances and still meeting individual needs resulted in four successful children. Close relationships with her siblings and her in-laws provided a year-round network of activities with loving family. She will be remembered fondly by all.

In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Edwin J. Izzo, who died in 2001; two brothers, Richard and Nelson Derlick, Jr., and one sister, Vera Gilmor.

Survivors include four children; Leonard E. (Lenora) Izzo, Dr. Brian J. (Patricia) Izzo, Nancy (John) Fleming and Janet (Richard) Sherin; eight grandchildren, Robert (Chris) Izzo, Joshua Izzo, Jessica (Adam) Wakefield, Sarah Izzo and Timothy (Lisa) Izzo, Patrick (Suzann) Fleming, Carrie (Don) Pecor and Kyle Sherin (fiancé Kara); ten great-grandchildren, Jason, Nicholas and Rose Izzo, Benjamin Wakefield, Brian Izzo, Sullivan and Lillian Fleming, Nia, Ava and Grant Pecor; one sister, Lorraine Fitzgerald and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Relatives and friends gathered to remember her on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at the William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing and Cunniff Funeral Homes, 628 North Broadway in Saratoga Springs. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Friday, May 11 in St. Clement’s Church, 231 Lake Ave. Private burial will be at the Gerald BH Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery.

Memorials may be made in her name to Community Hospice of Saratoga, 179 Lawrence St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

Special thanks to the expert care from Dr. Dan Eldredge, Dr. Roland Phillips, Dr. Jeff Paul and the personal care of the entire staff of the Wilton Home of the Good Shepherd. A most special thanks for the ever-present loving support of Kathy Peterson, who truly is family.
