Eveleen was a resident of Colbert Oklahoma for 64 years most of which was spent on the family farm raising her children and tending to the livestock with the rest of the family. Eveleen loved to talk and enjoyed sharing the experiences of her life especially her childhood days growing up with her brothers and sisters. She also spoke with great fondness of the trips that she and Murray would take to Washington state in the early 1950’s to work in the apple orchards in the Wenatchee and Chelan area during harvest time. The natural beauty of the region left an everlasting impression upon her. Eveleen was the perfect mother, selfless and supportive of her children in everything they did. We are forever grateful.
