I have many wonderful memories of Aunt Jerry in my younger days…visit to the lake with Momma and Poppa and when you all visited Momma and Poppa in Tn. She could light up a room with her presence and humor…remember such laughter and fun with my parents!!! And she was always so kind and sweet to me!!
    God bless and condolences to all!
    Love and thinking of you!

    Dave & I express our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother, Gerry! When my dad, Vernon died we felt the loss and the acknowledgement of becoming an orphan. We know that God will help you all in the journey of accepting his will and taking her into heaven where she can join all in the happiness of everlasting love and care. We also know that Your family have Fr. Evans to help you accept this as he helped all of us with our loss. What a great apostle of Christ your family has. I miss him so much as our priest and dear friend!

    Dear Evans Family, Gosh, how long has it been since your Mom put her work into our Cub Scout Den? We had a great time with her in charge. Your mother was fun and got along good with my mom. What a pair.
    Let God bring you peace and loving memories of long ago. Life has just zipped by. John, it was good to see you a few years back. If you find yourself in Fargo please call me at 701 799 5743.

    We are in California (Ventura) now seeing our son and our daughter in law and our new 2 year old grand daughter. From here we take 15 days or more to drive to Virgina and see the beautiful land provided to us by our Lord and Saviour.

    Blessings to the Evan’s Family. Now Gerry can enjoy her eternal rest. Rest in Peace Gerry.

    Frank Anderson and Family
