  1. To: Chuck & family:
    I am so sorry to hear about Evelyn. I had no idea until tonight, when my brother, Richard Thompson told me.
    I sent a card, to thank her for all her help, before I found out she had passed. She was a great lady. We are all so fortunate to have known her
    With very Special Thoughts –

  2. Enjoyed working with Evelyn at KDA We visited about family and k-state football daily. I will miss her.
    Thinking of you, and wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow.

  3. Chuck, There are no words to express how sorry we are of the passing of Evelyn. Remarkable women, everyone that knew her shares your lost. Tower of strength, fought hard, never giving up. I cherish all our memories we had with you and Evelyn from sitting in your house watching the first walk on the moon in 1969 to the North rim of the Grand Canyon in 2014, and the last time together 2016 in Coinjock, North Carolina. You are in our thoughts and prayers

  4. Evelyn will be missed so much-especially at the KDA office. I loved hearing her tell stories about family or friends. Or when she would discuss the various sports teams with Steve & how they were possibly going to do or didn’t do. How the lambs were doing at home or an upcoming trip. She was an adventurous lady & I’m glad I had the opportunity to know her. My thoughts & prayers go out to her family & friends.

  5. I have so much treasured knowing Evelyn these last four years. Between our times at KS Dept of Ag and our evenings out for supper in Topeka, she always lifted my days up. I will greatly miss her.
