EVELYN L. DALLMAN Obituary
Evelyn passed away March 23, 2016 at the University of Washington Medical Center. She was born November 11, 1926 to Frank and Lena Driscoll in Langley. Evelyn was raised on the family farm at Mutiny Bay on Whidbey Island, Washington. She attended Mutiny Bay School before Langley High School, and graduated early in 1944 to attend Nurses Training at Columbus Hospital in Seattle. During her training, she met her husband, Howard Dallman, while he was stationed in the Northwest following his tour as a pilot in the 8th Army Air Corps. They were married in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on February 13, 1947. Evelyn worked as a nurse in Milwaukee, before she and her husband started their family. They moved to Prairie Village, Kansas in 1954 where they raised their three children - Roger, Doug and Nancy. Sometime in the late 60's, that passion awakened in her heart to become a nurse again, and enrolled in the University of Kansas medical center to earn her BSN in 1971. Evelyn taught Nursing at Kansas City Kansas Community College until 1973, and then took a position at Penn Valley Community College. She taught Nursing at Penn Valley while earning her Master's degree in Education and continued to teach until 1989. The Driscoll family included her three brothers and sisters Irene, Frank, Ed, Gert, Loretta, and Chuck. Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Lena Driscoll, her husband, Howard Dallman, and her siblings, Frank, Ed, Loretta and Rose Driscoll. She is survived by her three children, Roger (Kathy) and Doug Dallman (Becky), Nancy (Wally) Jordan. Eight grandchildren Andrew, Adam, and Evi Dallman, Matt, (Kimi) Zach and Ben Dallman, Lucas (Richelle) and Craig (Deborah) Jordan and two step grandchildren Jimmy and Laura Allen. Seven great grandchildren, Branch, Jones, and Evelyn Dallman, Andrew Jordan, Noah Dallman, Addie and Walter Jordan. Evelyn passed away knowing all of her children and grandchildren loved her dearly. She will be missed and remembered for her kindness to those around her and for her fiery nature. For those fortunate enough to have met our mother, we ask you not to feel sorrow for her passing but instead remember and cherish the moments that made her time on earth a blessing for us all. She was interred at Bayview Cemetery, alongside her husband, Howard. For those wishing to do so, memorial contributions can be made for a Nursing Scholarship at: MCC Foundation Attn: Evelyn Dallman Memorial Scholarship, 3200 Broadway, Kansas City, MO 64111.
