We thought of you today
But that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake
With which we’ll never part
Jehovah has you in his keeping
We have you in our heart

On 12-26-2017 at the age of 90, Evelyn passed away while in residence at Casa Maria Health Care Center in Roswell, NM. Evelyn was born on March 12, 1927, in Kenosha, WI, to Joseph and Helen Ranchel, previously deceased. Also deceased are elder sister, Ruth, younger brother, Joe, and ex-husband, Warren Gaustad. Surviving Evelyn is younger sister, Jean, Evelyn’s eight children, 11 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, and a large number of extended family. During her lifetime, Evelyn lived in parts of Wisconsin, St. Paul, MN, and Roswell, NM.
Evelyn was considered eccentric, with an oddball sense of humor. Her love of gardening and reading somewhat mitigated her lifetime of struggles, hardships, and physical ailments, and now she has at last found peace.
Evelyn’s belief is that her fate is now in the hands of Jehovah. She was looking forward to paradise.
A memorial service is planned for January 6, 2018 at 10:00 am at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home.
