Evelyn Lund

August 12, 1925 — February 27, 2016

Evelyn Pauline Lund, the daughter of Wilfred and Agnes (Lynam) Thomas, was born August 12, 1925, in Adams County Iowa, near Corning. Evelyn entered eternal rest on February 27, 2016, at Clearview Home, in Clearfield, Iowa, at the age of ninety years, six months and fifteen days.
Evelyn attended eight years of Adams County Rural School and graduated from Corning High School with the class of 1942. Evelyn was united in marriage to Paul Phillip Lund on May 22, 1942, in Maryville Mo. Evelyn lived and worked in Topeka, KS for a short time until moving back to Adams County, south of Brooks, when Paul returned from WWII. Their marriage was blessed with three children: Nancy, Laurie, and Chuck.
Evelyn was a Homemaker and Farm wife. She worked as a seamstress all her adult life. She made many different items and performed many alterations. She made the wedding dress for Tanner and Brittinas wedding, and she also made her daughter Nancy’s wedding dress, as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses. Evelyn helped Paul in the field and with the livestock. She was known to be a wonderful cook. In addition to all this, she worked as a teller for the Bank of Brooks.
Evelyn was very involved with her family and community. She taught Sunday School when her kids were young at Fairview Church. She held many offices in the Emblem Chapter of Eastern Star, and was a member of P.E.O, and the Neighborhood Club. Evelyn was an avid reader, who enjoyed her books, when time permitted. She was a strong 4-H supporter and leader who enjoyed her family’s many 4-H activities and shows. Evelyn was eventually inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame. She truly enjoyed attending her kids and grandkids activities. Evelyn liked going to all the dance recitals to watch her grandkids perform. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
