Evelyn was a proud homemaker and Pentecostal, by faith. She loved rummage sales, going for rides, watching old westerns and the color red. Evelyn had an extensive doll and Mickey Mouse collection. She was very musically gifted and could yodel and play the harmonica. Evelyn was always adorned with many bracelets, rings and necklaces. She enjoyed being a fixture at McDonalds and Country Kitchen, spending time visiting with friends. She even hoped to dance on a table at McDonalds at the age of 100! Her love of the Lord was great, but she cherished her family, most of all. She will be dearly missed by all of her many loved ones.

Pallbearers will be John Cassady, Eric Turner, Jordan Holman, Benjamin Boutwell and Dustin Hubbard.

Honorary pallbearers will be Chuck Jones, Charles Turner, Dale Brown and Damon Thayer.
