Born February 7, 1930; died at the age of 81, February 25, 2011. Evelyn was born and raised in Priest River, Idaho. Her parents were Mike and Olivia Veltri. She was the second of four children: Violet Franz, Marvin Veltri and Marlene Veltri, who is the only surviving sibling.
Evelyn graduated from Priest River High School and married her high school sweetheart, Alan Henderson. She traveled with Alan while he served in the Army. They settled in Spokane and had two sons: Daniel and Michael Henderson. Her daughters-in-law are Sue and Shelly. She has two grandchildren: Ryan and Renee and one great- grandson, Landon Henderson (seven months old).
Alan and Evelyn had a second home at Deer Lake, Washington, where they thoroughly enjoyed the summers with their family and many friends. Evelyn was an immaculate homemaker and an avid gardener, who compelled her neighbors to attempt to keep their yards as beautiful as hers. She was loved very much by all and will be greatly missed.
