She died Wednesday, May 25th in the company of her family, from complications of a broken shoulder she suffered in March. She was 84 years old. She leaves behind a strong family. Two daughters, Susan Wagner and Rebecca Bodine; five grandchildren; Anna Oselio, Sean Bodine, Eric Fonua, William Wagner, and Kevin Wagner; and two great-grandchildren, Catalina Oselio and Aleah Fonua. Evelyn was born and raised in Tennessee, but moved to Los Lunas in 1951, and then to Albuquerque in 1959. She spent much of her time and energy helping those in need.
