Evelyn is remembered by many for her unwavering faith, grace, dignity, quiet strength, and her sense of humor. Her kindness and compassion for family and friends is evident to all. As a pastor’s wife she developed meaningful relationships with many members of each congregation.

She delighted at each addition to the family, especially new babies. She spent time preparing for these little ones by making handmade blankets. Evelyn showed her love for her family by passing down her joy for travel, The Lake, reading, puzzles, games, cards, and cooking, especially traditional Norwegian favorites learned by all generations. She loved entertaining large family gatherings, particularly Thanksgiving. Every family member has their own unique memories with Evelyn that will keep her close
