Evelyn M. (Jodz) Mistkowski

Evelyn M. (Jodz) Mistkowski, 101, wife of the late Albin A. Mistkowski, died Saturday, November 5, 2022 at Care One Essex Park Rehabilitation in Beverly following her brief illness. She was known as “Grammy” to all her loved her.

Born on October 16, 1921 in Ipswich where she was a lifelong resident, she was one of the two children of the late Boleslaw and Mary (Sharis) Jodz.  Educated in Ipswich Public Schools she soon went to work at United Shoe Machine in Beverly. There as a ‘Mail Girl,’ she delivered mail on roller skates. She later went on to work for several years at Hayward Hosiery and Sylvania both in Ipswich, and most recently as the baker at the Doyon School from which she retired in 1974.  She was a fabulous ice skater. She loved home gardening, sewing, crocheting, baking for family and friends, and her family vacations. She and her husband Al enjoyed countless hours caring for their beloved grandchildren. She was a fiercely independent woman who could fix anything. Evelyn was often found shoveling snow, digging in the garden or cruising in her Cougar. She remained in her home with exception of the past few months at Care One, where with family and staff she celebrated her 101st birthday.

Evelyn  is survived by a son, James A. Mistkowski of Yarmouth, ME; two daughters, Lorraine B. Bertrand of Rowley, E. “Inchu” Elliott and her companion  Bill Wile of Ipswich; four grandchildren, Paul Bertrand and his husband Leonardo of San Francisco, CA, Lisa Mistkowski and her companion Steve Zuk of York, ME, Cory Head and her husband Jeff of Rowley, Jimmy Elliott of Ipswich; two great granddaughters, Rachel Head of Rowley,   Brooklynne Padolko of York, ME; nephews, Bill, Ron, Frankie and nieces, Priscilla and Nancy. She was the grandmother of the late Stephen Bertrand formerly of Rowley. Rest in peace ‘Grammy’ We Love You.
