Evelyn married David Adrian in 1940 and they shared 68 years together until his passing in 2007 Evelyn and David lived on a farm near Butterfield, Minnesota until they moved to the Go Ye Mission Farm on the campus of Markhoma Bible Academy here in Tahlequah in 1961. Evelyn loved children and was involved in child evangelism and had operated a day care for several years, she taught Bible lessons in Sunday School for children. She had also worked in the Tahlequah High School Cafeteria. For local restaurants and individuals she would bake desserts. She enjoyed baking and giving of her gifts and talents for others' enjoyment. Baking allowed her to give where she felt there was a need. She was always giving to others. She had worked helping her husband farming and raising livestock. She had worked in the family business at Adrian Farm Supply and was a volunteer at Christ For Me until her health prohibited. Evelyn enjoyed gardening and flowers. She enjoyed reading Christina books, specially the Bible.
