A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, March 11, 2018 at Springfield Faith Center, 600 Hayden Bridge Way for Ev Sauer. Our Amazing Mom, Nana, Sister, Aunt and Friend went on her “Quick Flight” to Heaven and ran into the arms of Jesus on February 24, 2018. She was surrounded by family in her final days. She was born to James and Lila Campbell in Nashville, AR as one of 15 children. They enjoyed one another, hard work on the farm, playing games and music. They also enjoyed adventure as the whole family moved out to Oregon in two vehicles in October of 1942.
At the age of 13 Ev made a commitment to follow Jesus and that decision forever changed her and those around her. She was a remarkable woman of hospitality, kindness, faith and courage. To know Ev was to love her as she had open arms and an open heart that welcomed all people that came in her path. You could say that her life was a long obedience in the same direction. She was one that enjoyed reading, cooking, working in the garden, playing cards and having slumber parties for her sisters, kids or grandkids. A four-generation family night was a weekly tradition.
In 1947 Ev married Henry Sauer that started a 56-year marriage. Having a Daughter and Son was the beginning of a legacy that lives on today. Ev’s joy and delight was her family. She was preceded in death by her husband Henry and grandson Shawn. She is survived by her Daughter, Dianne Nowak (Dennis) and Son, Ron Sauer (Cheryl), Sisters, Veda Amino of Sacramento, CA, Joanne Busey and Patsee White of Springfield, OR and Brother Bill Campbell of Yuma, AZ. She is also survived by 6 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. In lieu of flowers the family requests you consider donations to Cascade Hospice or Young Life.
A visitation will be held on Friday, March 9, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Major Family Funeral Home in Springfield. Visit to share memories and sign the guest book.
