Evelyn left her home in Rio Rancho, NM on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 to join her family in heaven.
Evelyn was the youngest of six children born to William L. and Anna S. Thurston of Aztec, NM.
She was raised in Aztec and graduated from Aztec High in 1944. She remained good friends with all of her graduating class throughout the years. It was in school that one of her classmates decided they should all have nicknames and she became Puddy to many friends.

She worked for many years at Farmington Drug and then later as a traveling cosmetics sales representative for Southwestern Drug. After many years on the road she married her second husband and began a new chapter in her life.
Evelyn enjoyed crafting, traveling the world, becoming a master gardener, all animals, and her family and friends.
Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents William and Anna Thurston, husband Jack Davis, sisters Neva Palmer, Willa Thurston, Marie Thurston, and Pearl Watson, brother Dick Thurston, son Gerald Rogers, stepson Randy Davis, and granddaughter Crystal Kimber.
