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.
