Evelyn Singley Broaddus

Evelyn Singley Broaddus peacefully passed away on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. Evelyn had enjoyed an active day and evening with friends when she suddenly fell ill and passed away at Ukiah Valley Medical Center. Evelyn is survived by daughter Katherine Parenti & husband Paul Parenti of Aptos, son Andrew Broaddus & wife Alison Broaddus of Davis, grandchildren, Tony Parenti & wife Jennifer Parenti, D.J. Parenti, James Broaddus, Claire Broaddus, and great-granddaughter Mary Parenti. A lifelong member of the Ukiah community, Evelyn grew up on the family ranch at The Forks, daughter of Herb & Margaret Singley. Married Robert Broaddus in 1947, upon graduation from San Jose State College they returned to Ukiah and began their careers as educators. Evelyn was a teacher, counselor, and administrator for the Ukiah Unified School District for over thirty-five years. Beyond her love and enjoyment of family and education, Evelyn was a life-long community volunteer for many organizations. The last few years she was especially dedicated to Ukiah Garden Club, California Retired Teachers Association, University Women, and helping organize Ukiah High Reunions. Being active in the community was inherent to her personality. She believed volunteering was not only a benefit to the community she loved so much, but also personally rewarding. Evelyn will be remembered by her family for her love and dedication to all their endeavors, their many family ski trips, road trips, summers at University of Oregon, trips to Truckee, Seattle, Vancouver and beyond. Evelyn is also survived by her cousins George Singley, Marie LaRue, and the extended Singley, Broaddus, and Ford families. A memorial service will be held at Eversole Mortuary, on Wednesday, October 16th at 11:00am. The family asks that contributions be made to your favorite local charity or volunteer your time in memory of Evelyn.
