Evelyn M. Dienemann

August 30, 1935 ~ April 13, 2020

Evelyn Mae Dienemann, 84, most recently of Vero Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully on April 13th, 2020, due to complications from cancer.


She was born August 30th, 1935 in Baltimore, Maryland to Benjamin Irving and Sarah Buck and graduated from Western High School in 1953.  In 1955, she was married to Max Dienemann and they moved to New Jersey, where they eventually bought a house (in Turnersville in 1961) and had three children, Mark (1956), Joan (1959) and Erik (1962).  Evelyn was a loving and devoted mother and raising three children was certainly more than a full-time job.


After her divorce in 1972, Evelyn put her superb secretarial and communications skills to work at various jobs, eventually advancing to become the Executive Secretary to the President of Langston Corporation.  Her long-time boss often said that her contributions were more valuable than those of most of the Vice Presidents he had on his staff; Evelyn retired from Langston in 1997.


In 1974 Evelyn met and fell in love with Robert Butler and they lived together until Bob died in 2014.  After they were both retired, they moved to Charlotte, NC in 2002 (where Joan and her family lived).  They were inseparable and shared a love of family, music, shopping, playing games, and being very active in their church.  Then, after Joan retired to Vero Beach, FL (where Max had retired), in 2016, Evelyn soon followed, moving in with Joan.


Evelyn always had a big heart full of lots of love for her family and many friends and she always enjoyed visiting with all of them, as well as chatting on the phone with everyone.  One example of her big heart is that Evelyn and Max always remained good friends, despite the divorce, which made for much more fun and loving (and entertaining) family visits with their children and grandchildren.


Evelyn is survived by her son Mark with granddaughter Lara, her daughter Joan with granddaughter Stephanie (twin great grandsons Cash and Ryder) and grandson Michael, her son Erik and wife Judy with grandson Max, and a bunch of other family and friends.


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.

I’m going to miss my favorite aunt but will always remember my summertime visits when we’d stay up and watch the Steve Allen show and eat pistachios. Evelyn was smart, witty and loving. My sincere condolences to her family.

Joanie, so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, I don’t know if you remember me I used to live across the street in Whitman Square, Diane(Cheezum)Moore, your mother was always so great I remember when we were bored with nothing to do she would tell us to “spit in our shoe and watch it come through.” After my mom died you were there for me until my dad moved us away, I went through some really rough times after that, so sorry we didn’t keep in touch. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. I will be making a donation in her name and one in my mom’s name also since she also died of cancer. Your mother was great and she will be missed. Love and prayers to you and your entire family. Life goes on, stay strong and stay blessed. Love Diane

It is with great sadness that I have learned of Evelyn’s passing. She was a wonderful cousin that spent many summers on our farm and recently we have gotten back in touch. I had the honor of visiting with her in 2007. My sincere sympathy to all her family and friends. Rest in Peace Evelyn.

Joan, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Our Mothers worked together and enjoyed each other’s company and had a lot of laughs. I’m thinking and praying for you and your family. I wish I could be there to give you a hug. Love, Kim

Aunt Evelyn, your voice from the other end of my phone will be a sweet sound dearly missed; your laugh was infectious. Thank you for tethering my mother’s days to kindness, patience, compassion, and peppering it with wit. After her passing, we continued the tradition, and the days we spoke were always brighter. I love you and miss you (and make sure to give Mom a pinch under the arm for me!).

Love , Paula

Max, Mark, Joan and Erick and family,

I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mom and my Aunt. I wish over the years, we could have gotten to know her and you all more. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families during this difficult time of grief.

We miss my Mom everyday and know that her spirit lives on in her children and grandchildren.

In Seiner Liebe,

My deepest sympathy to my cousins. I know it is selfish of me, but I am going to miss our talks after work or during my walks the most. Thank you for always being on the other end of the phone, with first my mother, and then me, with your compassion, patience, and wit. Your laugh was infectious and you always made me chuckle, especially when we were able to both put Barbara in her place.

I love and miss you deeply, Paula

Aunt Evelyn offered kind words of comfort to me when I lost my mom. She was a very sweet soul – full of smiles that were evident even over the internet! She always remained a dear friend to my mom over the years. Love to all the people she has blessed.

The first time I met Evelyn, was at a Butler family gathering in Woodbury. And, I knew from that moment that we would be friends for life. Ed and I spent a good amount of time with Bob and Evelyn through the years, and I wish we could now.
I’m very sad that
we can’t pick up the phone and call each other, or visit with each other. Your Mom is forever in my heart.
Joan, I hope we stay connected through the years. I’ve never met your brother’s and their families, but maybe someday. I’m sending deep feelings of love and loss to you all. I will miss your Mom always, Eileen

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
