Many happy winters were spent in Arizona during their retirement years, while summers meant the joy of having Michael and Nicole visit from Arizona, with time spent on the farm, swimming, boating and going to Camp Hermosa.

One thought on “Obituary – Evelyn Sheane

  1. Our sincere sympathies to Kim, Karen and families. It has been a long time since we have seen any of you but we wanted to express our condolences.

    Your mom was sure a precious woman of God. I remember the hot coals in the bucket story which was an accident to the carpet.

    We have moved to London near Costco so if you are ever this way drop in.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
