Dolores Vera Evans, 78 of Salida, died Jan. 26, 2009, surrounded by family at Pikes Peak Hospice Care Center in Colorado Springs.

Mrs. Evans was born at home in Salida Feb. 14, 1930, to Nestor and Ruth Trujillo. She married Roger W. Evans of Buena Vista June 3, 1978. They lived in Salida 30 years.

She loved to dance. She wasn't fond of owning house pets, but to her husband's credit, she learned to love Gizmo, a small Boston terrier puppy, her granddaughter, Alyssa, brought home.

She especially enjoyed summer barbecues prepared for her by granddaughter, Ashley, and her special friend, Brent Stone. She was grateful to granddaughter Alyssa's boyfriend, Jed Comer, for the wheelchair ramp he built for her.

Mrs. Evans loved children and was well known in Salida for the loving and special child care she provided for many families during several years before she became ill. She worked for Dr. William Mehos of Salida for many years.

She was preceded in death by her father, Nestor, and mother, Ruth Trujillo; daughter, Janet Lee Lynchard; sisters, Elsie Gallegos, and Josephine Black and brothers, Ernest and Gilbert Trujillo.

Survivors are her husband, Roger W. Evans of Salida; daughter, Patricia D. (Steven L.) Litzenberger; granddaughters, Sarah L. (David W.) Richardson, Katie E. (Mathew R.) Mount both of Denver, Alyssa Jantel Lynchard and Ashley Jean Lynchard both of Salida; great-granddaughters, Lacey O. Richardson and Ava R. Mount of Denver and Cierra Lee Lynchard of Salida; sister, JoAnne McDonald; brothers, George Trujillo and James Trujillo; several cousins, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

She will be remembered as "Forever Valentine."

Cremation was provided by Springs Funeral Services through Lewis & Glenn Funeral Home, Salida. Memorial Mass will be announced later.
