Tenant of the Month!
Evelyn was born on February 3. 1928, in Platte South Dakota. She had 10 sisters and 4 brothers. When she was 10 years old her family moved to Hollandale, Minnesota. After the 8th grade Evelyn stayed home with her siblings to work on the farm. Her father would bring books from the town library for her and her siblings to read on a regular basis to help with education. Evelyn met her husband Hank at a Bible Conference that she would attend each year in Wellsburg, Iowa. After her marriage to Hank, she then moved to a farm in Kanawha where she raised 4 sons and a daughter. At age 40 Evelyn and her sister decided to go back to school and took classes for two weeks in Belmond where they both tested out of high school. Later Evelyn really wanted to become a nurse, so she went back to school at NIACC for 1 full year and became an LPN and was hired at the Kanawha nursing home. She said her date nights consist of a dinner at the We 3 and grocery shopping. After her husband died Evelyn lived on the farm for another 20 years before moving to town. Evelyn has lived at the Summit house for 2 years. Congratulations on being Tenant of the Month!
