Dorothy J. Evans
July 25 1923 ~ October 16, 2010

Dorothy J. Evans, a unique lady, born July 25, 1923 in Albia, Iowa to Frederick and Minnie Grothe, reunited with her husband, best friend and soul mate Harry Joseph Evans, on October 16, 2010.

She hopped a freight train to start a new life and settled Salt Lake City, UT in her young teenage years.

She leaves behind her daughters: Betty Jean (Ron) Ouellette, Bobbie Wach-Glenn, Mona (Dave) Johnson, Darla (Kevin) Weber; sons: Robert (Cathy) Garnett, Joe (Aida) Evans; 16 grandchildren and many great children.

Preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter Judy Kavoukas , granddaughter Jodie Bott, and grandson Robbie Johnson.

She was an avid people watcher. She spent most of her time on her front swing drinking coffee and eating creamies. She made us laugh with her regular catch phrases and off-the-wall sarcasm. Everyone who knew her loved her and will miss her dearly.
