Regretfully I missed mentioning two surviving sister's Medrine Beauchamp Bemidji, MN, Patty Purkett Havre, MT and her brother Ambose Purkett, Havre MT

Evelyn was a terrific daughter and sister to her family and a wonderful wife to my Dad but my brothers and I are the lucky ones, we got the best mom ever, she was loving, caring and kind, she gave us a strong foundation and a love for Jesus Christ and somehow she managed to be a lot fun while raising 5 kids, you don't hear that much these days.....she will be in my heart forever and now it is her turn to enjoy eternal life with her Lord.

You are so blessed and loved by your family and God. We know you are resting in peace. I enjoyed meeting you and are friends with your loving son Garlyn. He is a great man and loved you enough to be there to take care of you in your time of need.

I was a caregiver for Evelyn. She was a very pleasant lady. We went on walks. She enjoyed when we took Daisy(the dog) with us. Sometimes she helped in the kitchen. She was very good at setting the table. I loved our chats. She was a very good pool player, and beat me often. We always had a puzzle going also.
Love Imagene Norris
