Evanthia Tom Friedley was born on September 28, 1928, in Waterloo, the daughter of Thomas and Bernice Genolous. On May 12, 1948, she was united in marriage to Herald Friedley in Rochester, Minnesota. The couple made their home in Waterloo and Cedar Falls. Evanthia was the receptionist for the Friedley car dealerships. She lived for taking care of her children and grandchildren. Evanthia dedicated her life to helping others and had a passion for leading people to Christ. She spread joy and love everywhere she went and was the glue that held her family together. Evanthia never had an unkind word to say about anyone and taught her family how to live as kind, loving people. She was the closest thing to a saint on Earth. Evanthia died at the age of 89 on Friday, March 2, 2018, surrounded by her loving family at Manorcare in Waterloo. She was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, Jody Swarbrick; two grandsons, Joey Swarbrick and Tony Friedley; three sisters, and two brothers. Evanthia is survived by her husband; a son, Randy Friedley of Cedar Falls; a daughter, Gabrielle “Shani” (Brett) Medhus of Reinbeck; a brother, Sam Genolous of Cedar Falls; and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Evanthia will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
