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.

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.
