Born in: McPherson, Kansas
Resided in: Pueblo, Colorado

Evelyn Louise (Rump) Grisham Sutcliffe, 92, was born August 1, 1931, in McPherson, Kan., and passed away on February 22, 2024, in Pueblo, Colo. She is survived by her husband, Robert K. Sutcliffe; daughter, Linda K. Grisham; son, David R. (Elaine E.) Grisham; granddaughters, Jennifer L. Grisham, and Stephanie J. (Karl) Grisham; and great-grandson, Micheal Grisham. She is also survived by her sister, Peggy A. Reeser, and her children, Lori A. Reeser, Karen A. (Jim) Reeser, and Kenneth (Diana) Resser. Evelyn leaves many special family members and friends to remember her.

She was predeceased by her birth mother, Jessie M. (Churchill) Rump in 1931; infant daughter, Carol Sue Grisham in 1952; first husband, Donald R. Grisham in 1967; nephew, Matthew Reeser; and parents, Irvin F. and Zelma A. (Beaman) Rump. She is also predeceased by many other family members.

She was a proud member of the 1949 class of Central High School and loved helping with class reunions and keeping in touch with many classmates and still enjoyed getting together monthly for lunch with the few that are still in Pueblo. She loved living in different states while her first husband was transferred with his job and felt it gave her and the children a chance to be exposed to different cultures, things that didn’t change were her being able to be a Cub Scout den mother or a Brownie and Girl Scout leader.

After she retired from Decibel Credit Union (now ENT) in Rye, family Genealogy research occupied many of her hours. Cooking and sewing were always favorites and camping, fishing, and hunting with her second husband were always special times.

She requested there not be a Memorial Service and a private burial at Mountain View Cemetery in Pueblo, will take place at a later date. Memorials may be given to local Boy and Girl Scout troops or Central High School. Online condolences, www.MontgomerySteward.com
