Resident of Walnut Creek
Evelyn Helene (Dryfhout) Tos was born in Chicago, IL on July 6, 1939 to Rev. and Mrs. William Dryfhout. She was the first of five children. Lynn, as she liked to be called, graduated from Hanford High School and Calvin College where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. She married Tom Tos on August 18, 1961 with whom she had three children. After Tom graduated from Oregon State in 1962, they moved to Pleasant Hill, CA where Tom could begin his pharmacy career and the young couple felt comfortable with a local Christian Reformed church community. Lynn settled in as a homemaker and the couple soon had children. Lynn enjoyed raising the kids, teaching Sunday School, and hosting friends and visitors of the Walnut Creek Christian Reformed Church into her home. Once the kids were older, she enjoyed Women's Community Bible Study, producing a children's version of the Heidelberg Catechism, gardening, cooking, reading, and being with her children and grandchildren. Lynn died peacefully on August 31, 2021 with family members at her side. She is survived by her children Cheryl (Doug Elffers), Rod (Karen Jongsma), and Laura (Bastiaan DeJong), nine grandchildren, one great grandchild, and four siblings. A memorial service will be held October 1, 2021 at Faith Christian Fellowship in Walnut Creek (860 Bancroft Rd.) at 10:00 am. View the online memorial for Evelyn Helene Tos
