Evelyn was born March 7, 1921 to John and Rose (Hill) Bryce of Almont, MI. She had long and happy marriages to Maurice Chriscinske and Marvin Henderson. They preceded her in passing.
Survivors include a son, Robert (Elisabeth) Chriscinske of Hannibal, MO; and two daughters, Janet (Lynn) Marker of Marlette, MI and Rose Glassford of Imlay City, MI; nine grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and 10 great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Alice Smith; her grandson, Mark Chriscinske; and three sisters, Mary, Florence, and Jacqueline.
Evelyn graduated from Almont High School and Cleary College. She retired from Imlay City State Bank with 23 years of loyal service.
She was active in her chosen activities and community. Evelyn had a long association with the Imlay City and surrounding area VFW Auxiliaries, rising to the position of VFW District 10 President. She cherished her involvement in The Order of the Eastern Star. Evelyn served in many positions in the organization, including Association President and so enjoyed the position of Conductress, which she served for several years.
Evelyn and husband, Marvin, wintered at Rainbow Village Resort Community in Zephyrhills, FL for over 20 years where they made many close and lasting friendships. They loved their summer travels with the Airstream Trailer Organization.
She loved family and family get-togethers. Her family knew her love of the outdoors. She loved to hunt and fish, a love she inherited from her parents. She was active in the family genealogy, and to this day, she attended the annual family reunions of one branch of the family.
Evelyn loved to entertain, sing, dance and whistle. She was a central performer during the Imlay City Centennial Celebration. She will be remembered within many of her organizations and associations as one with a song or a tune to whistle on the spur of the moment. Evelyn lost her ability to sing several years ago, due to a minor stroke, but not her ability to dance and whistle. Her friends of today will remember her ability to whistle a tune or a hymn along with the singers. And given the urge to dance, may pick up her cane as her partner and begin her two step.
She will be missed by family and friends.
Evelyn was active in her Christian faith at the many locations she lived throughout her long life.
