Unable to Delete “View Only” Note

I have an old note that that has a locked 🔒  padlock icon and say “This note is view only” The note also shows at the top as “Shared note”.  However the sharing icon is grayed out and is not selectable.

The issue is the not can not be deleted and has a reminder attached to it so it alway shows I have a active reminder which is very annoying.

I have attached a screenshoot on the note.

How can I delete this note?

No - I have double checked my “Shared With Me” and don’t see a old note with the title with the note I am have this issue with... 

You could try this.  Create a new note and merge it with the problematic note.  If it will let you merge does the note go away?  If it does, delete the resultant note and clear the trash at some point.  If it doesn't, got nothing else other than to contact support.

Update and resolution:

I discovered the issue on my iPad and found from my iPhone that I could update the note. 

  1. Updated the note by deleting it from my iPhone.
  2. from iPad - I still notice I had an issue with the note not update (deleting). Even after syncing. 
  3. from iPad - I deleted Evernote app..
  4. from iPad - re-installed and signed into Evernote.
