GAGER LEAHY, EVELYN (nee TAUNT), 98, peacefully passed into the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at Seacrest Village in Little Egg Harbor, NJ on December 18, 2020. The daughter of Henry and Carrie (Schneider) Taunt, Evie married Arthur H. Gager, Jr. They lived in Flourtown, PA and then moved to Margate, NJ. She was dedicated to her family and home. Her love language was gift-giving and she always brought you a thoughtful present. An excellent cook, she entertained her guests in elegant style. As an avid note and letter writer, she was able to express her feelings and keep in touch with friends and family thru the years. An active member of The Charity League, she sewed millions of sequins on Christmas pins. Her pastimes included playing the piano and golf where she won many awards. After Arthur’s death in 1973, she married James J. Leahy and moved to Avalon, NJ where she was honored to be a CCD teacher. In 1983 after Jim’s death, she moved to Smithville, NJ. She became an active member of Emmaus UMC Church. During her lifetime, she traveled across the USA and visited many parts of the world. She is survived by her 3 children, Dianne Gager Grimes of Scottsdale, AZ, Arthur and Diane (Wozniak) Gager, III of Absecon, NJ, and David and Linda (Bakley) Gager of Somers Point, NJ; her six grandchildren; and ten great-grandchildren. She was also predeceased by her grandson, Arthur Gager, IV. Our family would like to sincerely thank the nurses and staff of Seacrest Village for the loving care they gave our mother.
