Evert Sheldon

Evert Eugene Sheldon, age 83, passed away at McLaren Health Center in Lansing on March 7th, 2023. He was born on November 26th, 1939 to Mamie (Bushong) and Charles Sheldon.

He grew up in the Mt. Pleasant area, and served 4 years in the United States Air Force. After fulfilling his service to his country, Evert went into the oilfields where he labored for over 36 years. He was a talented mechanic/handyman and always had a project he was working on. Evert was a man of many words, and had never met a stranger. He enjoyed telling stories from his glory days, and was always ready to argue passionately about politics.

Evert is survived by his wife Jill Sheldon, his 6 children; Mark, Cheryl, Rick, John, Scott and Chad; 18 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.

It’s hard to believe I knew Evert most of my life. First as a young boy and later attending the same church until now. Such a kind man. I’m very sorry for the family’s loss, our hearts also shares your loss! Your in our thoughts and prayers.
