Lois Evans

Lois Evans passed away in her sleep at the home of her daughter on April 11, 2013.

Lois Mae was born at home on Feb 25, 1928, near Keys, Okla., to Ella Mae & Fred "Scoot" Aycock. She was raised in the Garlington community of Cimarron County, Okla.

She graduated from Boise City, Okla., High School in 1946 as caledictorian. She was also valedictorian when she went from grade school in 1942 to high school.

She was a waitress, fry cook and worked as deputy county clerk. She also worked construction, for a collection agency and a printing and office supply company.

She married Loyd Evans Oct. 19, 1947, in Clayton, N.M. Lois Mae was a loving and caring wife, mother and daughter.

She was saved at age 10, and was baptized into the Boise City Christian Church Sept. 20, 1938. She served as treasurer at the Hope Alliance Church in Urie, and was a lifetime member of the Wyoming Girl Scouts, serving as Brownie and junior leader and neighborhood chairman.

She loved her family, and especially enjoyed her granddaughters and great-grandchildren popping in and out.

This woman loved God's creations and enjoyed the outdoors. She also enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting — although she never shot a live animal — and crafts.

She is survived by her daughter Linda; favorite son-in-law Kenneth, of Mountain View; son Gary Evans, of Winnemucca, Nev.; granddaughters Kathleen Cruth, of Laramie, Shawn and Stephanie Evans, of Parachute, Colo., Kristina and Patrick Casalez, of Winnemucca; Cheryl and Jason Stegall, of Mountain View, Sheila Cruth and Shane Arnell, of Mountain View; Shane’s two daughters, Aspynn and Chaelyne, of Evanston; eight great-grandsons; two great-granddaughters; brothers "Bud" Lee Roy Aycock and James Adee, of Boise City, sisters Doris King, of Seibert, Colo., Elaine Hensley, of Boise City, Cindy Scroggins, of Gilmer, Texas; and dear friends Lillia Palmer, of Urie, and Karolyn Bare, of Cheyenne.

Lois was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Joanne; husband Loyd; mother Ella Mae Adee; father Fred Aycock; brother "Kelly" Benjamin Franklin Aycock II; and daughter-in-law Maria Evans.

Funeral Services will be at the Heart of the Valley Baptist Church in Mountain View on Monday, April 15, at 2 p.m. Visitation for Lois will be held one hour prior to funeral services.
