Evelyn and Don moved to California in 1966 where Evelyn worked at the Naval Weapons Center in Norco until 1968 when they welcomed their only son Curt in February of 1968. Evelyn loved her family, loved reading and writing and was an avid painter. She also enjoyed all things nature, often times painting them to canvas. She loved to see the poppy flowers in Lancaster CA and taking beautiful drives along the coast. Evelyn loved bird watching and in particular hummingbirds. Evelyn was adored by her husband Don and was the pillar of their family. Don will miss her greatly and has enjoyed the beautiful life they shared together. Evelyn is survived by her husband Don; son and his wife Curt & Stephanie; 4 grandchildren, Mallory Whalen and her husband Jimmy, Christopher, Nichole and Andrea Schumann; sister and her husband Edna Mae and Lynn Young of KS; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Nadine and Darryl Smith of KS and many nieces and nephews in KS and was preceded in death by her sister Nadine Harper. The family wants to thank everyone who had cared for Evelyn over the last few years and will hold a small private gathering at Thomas Miller Mortuary to celebrate her life and would ask in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Alzheimer's Foundation or Hospice.
