She’s a wonderful person and very humble to everyone she ever met.I remembered all of your kindness and attention in many ways. It’s very sad to hear about your sudden passing on. Good bye Ibu Evie Gunawan, you’ll be missed and may you Rest in Peace.

    I only met Evie on a few occasions in Surabaya but she was so lovely and welcoming to me and my wife Annette. We remember her as a very gracious person with a deep belief in her faith – a beautiful lady and a wonderful human being, in any company , anywhere. Her genuine love of God and neighbour was and is inspirational. If she hasn’t gone to her eternal reward with our God, there’s not much hope for the rest of us.

  • Jackie Degel says:

    Evie was devoted to her family. When she attended her grandchildren’s school functions, she beamed with love and pride. I will always remember her gentle kindness. May she rest in peace.

    A wonderful lady and a gentle soul. Our lives were made better by knowing Evie. I fondly recall my visits to Surabaya where Evie would guide me through the finer points of Indonesian cuisine [ delicious!! ]. She will be greatly missed but I’m sure she will find a special place in heaven. My deepest sympathy goes to my friend Andreas and his family.

  • Anneleen & Bernie Loughlin says:

    Andreas & Family,
    We are so sorry to hear of Evie’s passing. She was such a warm hearted & caring person. She certainly took good care of me when I came to Indonesia. She made me feel so welcomed when I was there. She was one of the more genuinely caring people I have ever met. Will miss her. Bernie & I send you our deepest sympathy & condolences.

    Dear Tante Evie,
    We are saddened to hear of you passing. Our thoughts and prayers to all your families.
    I have known you in short time and met you only a couple times in Austin, Texas and I already knew how wonderful, gentle and kind woman you are.
    The heart that you had for others is a rare gift to the many people who had the privilege to know you and be blessed by you.
    Rest in peace Tante Evie.

    Dear Mr Andreas Sr., Cie Margie, Cie Mary, Andreas Jr. & Manny…

    When we lose someone we love, this means unity of sadness and happiness. Sad because of the loss that has been occurred, but Happy because she has reached her final destination in life and now is united and rest in the everlasting peace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences to all of you and I am praying for you to get thru this.

    Jesus Bless You All.
