“Chubby” Carolyn Evinczik, 72, formerly of Jamestown, NY and Sugar Grove, PA, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at her residence of the past 3 years in Harrisburg, PA. Chubby was born on June 1, 1941 to the late Carl & Lillian (Johnson) Allenson in Jamestown, NY. Chubby was the wife of the late Daniel J. Evinczik, whom she was married to for 45 years before his passing in 2006. During her life, she made her passion for books and learning a career when she worked for the Warren Public Library.
Chubby was a member of the Salvation Army in Jamestown, NY. She was also a member of the Independent Order of the Vikings, Ingjald Lodge # 65 and she was a former member of the Sugar Lane’s Early Bird Bowling League on the Danny’s Fanny’s team.
Chubby was a beloved member of her community, very active and vocal. She enjoyed volunteering and spent some of her time helping at: Meals on Wheels, Jumpstreet, Wordsworth Academy, Capital Academy and the Dauphin County Public Library, all in the Harrisburg area.
In her free time, Chubby loved to read, do crossword puzzles and watch HGTV and the Food Network. She also enjoyed helping take care of her granddogs. Chubby loved to learn and was always using the internet to research information or email politicians.
Chubby will be remembered by her family and those that knew and loved her as having a unique sense of humor, strong opinions and being a picky eater. She did not like her food to touch on her plate. Chubby never met a stranger, she had a quick and contagious laugh, and she always smiled at everyone. Chubby was proud and supportive of her children and family, and she enjoyed spending time with all of them. It was very important to her that people always be kind to and tolerant of each other, and she lived by this precept. Chubby was the backbone of her family and she kept in contact with her relatives no matter how distant. She will be greatly missed and forever loved by all those whose lives she touched.
