Obituary

Veronica “Ronnie” Awis passed from this world into eternal life on April 17, 2019 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. A memorial service will be held in Stillwater, OK on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the First United Methodist Church. An additional memorial service is being planned for Cape Coral, Florida at the end of May.
She was born on September 9, 1926 to Carl and Mary Ellen (Christoff) Lutz in Detroit, Michigan. She was a lifelong member of the Roman Catholic Church. She entered the United States Cadet Nursing Corps to train as a Registered Nurse after graduating from Dominican High School and continued in her nursing career until the age of 78, working in various hospitals in Michigan and Florida. She also was trained and performed as a professional singer. Veronica performed with the Michigan Opera, in operetta plays and with other groups; directed choirs and sang in the Catholic Church; sang at weddings, funerals, and symphony functions; served as a cantor in the Jewish Temple; and basically, sang whenever she found the opportunity. She even sang the Star Spangled Banner and other songs while in the nursing home in Stillwater. She earned a BA in Fine Arts from St. Joseph College at the age of 60. She said she might like to teach someday and needed the credentials.
Veronica married Edward Awis in 1950. Together they owned and operated Avis Plumbing in Royal Oak, Michigan. Veronica, her husband and five children moved from Michigan to Cape Coral, Florida in 1965 where they reestablished Avis Plumbing. She lived in Florida until her health needs resulted in a move to Stillwater in 2012. Veronica was a certified pilot and navigator in the Power Squadron and even sailed a sailboat from Florida to Michigan. She was a member of many different organizations. She founded the Southwest Florida Symphony Society and served as their first President and was a lifetime member.
Veronica is survived by four children: Jo Awis Kahn (Brian)-Stillwater, Brian E. Awis (Anne Marie)-Cape Coral, Florida, Beth Awis Goodpasture (Charlie)-Plano, Texas and Karen Awis Ebbert- Ft. Myers Beach, Florida); 10 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren with one more due in August; 2 sisters-in-law – Anna (Awis) Gennari and Joann (Dankas) Awis; and many nieces and nephews. She was pre-deceased by her parents, her brother John Lutz, her husband Edward Awis, and her son Donald Awis.
In lieu of flowers memorials can be made to the Stillwater First United Methodist Church Music Ministry or the Southwest Florida Symphony Society in Fort Myers, Florida.

Dear Awis family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Veronica. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
