Evelyn was an active member and an officer in the Diamond Tread Car Club, a car club that her husband Fay joined after he retired and built a 1929 Ford Model A. She was also a member of the Red Hat Ladies and was always one to find the best in people.
She was a generous, loving person and will be sadly missed by her many friends and her family.
Because of her love of books, the family has requested that memorials be sent to the Imperial Public Library Foundation, P.O. Box 728, Imperial, NE 69033.
