  1. Evelyn made me feel welcome as a new resident at Primrose. I really
    Enjoyed visiting with her. She is missed Loretta Portenier

  2. My name is [Fr.] Frank Davied and I came to know Evelyn when I would go to Primrose Retirement Community on Sundays to play the music and/or preach God’s WORD. After the service I would always sit with Evelyn for fellowship and what a beautiful soul who loved the Lord. I know the old song that says: “There is no sorrow or pain that Heaven cannot heal!” She would sit in the front row and always spoke clearly and firmly what she believed. She took me to her apartment room and showed me all the different things she and her husband Duane had made — especially those crafted bowls made with lasso rope. Wow! Please know I Remember all of you during this time of saying your fare-y-wells … until we see her again. She is now in a safer place and safer hands than any hands here on earth. I missed her Presence on Sunday when I sang: How Great Thou Art and the Old Rugged Cross. May she rest in peace and blessings during your time of grieving. Frank Davied

  3. So sorry for your loss. I can remember what a hard worker Evelyn was. She was the epitome of the best farmer/ranch wife there ever was. My mother, Jacquetta Carter Merchant, admired her very much. May God bless you all.
    Blessings,
    Katherine Merchant Cook

  4. Sorry for you loss. I enjoyed the time knowing Evelyn. We had lunch with her at Primrose 2 weeks before she passed. She will be missed.
