Evelyn (Bacherman) Ponn

Evelyn (Bacherman) Ponn was born in Peabody to Harry and Jenny Bacherman, immigrants from Russia. Evelyn lived most of her life in Peabody with her husband Abe and their two children Sandra and David, until Abe took her out of Peabody and they moved to Middleton.

Evelyn was a proud graduate of Peabody High School, class of 1949, and Salem Teachers College (now known as Salem State University), where she received a Master’s Degree and had a short teaching career in Peabody.  Evelyn was an active member of Temple Ner Tamid in Peabody, becoming the first female vice president.

Evelyn is survived by her sister Annabelle Swartz, her children Sandra (Ponn) Rosenbaum Kramer and her husband Gary, David Ponn and wife Lynne, her grandchildren Brett (Hannah) Ponn, Jeremy (Meredith) Ponn, Sara (Daniel) Marcq, Craig (Sari) Rosenbaum and Tyler and Brady Mills, and her great-grandchildren Alec and Jack Marcq, Griffin, Margaret and Abram Ponn, Aaron Rosenbaum, and McKinley Ponn and by her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Abraham Ponn, her sister Marion Marcus, her brother Edward Bacherman, and her son-in-law Alan Rosenbaum. Much love and gratitude go out to her caregivers, Jane Nakacwa, Josefina Velez and Caren Turner.

Services in Evelyn’s memory were held at Temple Ner Tamid, Peabody on June 16, followed by interment at Maple Hill Cemetery, Peabody. Donations may be made to Temple Ner Tamid, 368 Lowell St., Peabody, MA 01960, or to the charity of your choice.
