There she worked at the First National Bank (Wells Fargo) for 25 years, retiring in 1985.  On August 6, 1961, Evallyn was united in marriage to A.T. Wolf Jr. at the St. James Lutheran Church in Belle Fourche.  A.T. died in the year, 2000.   Despite many hardships that came her way, Evallyn had a good life that was full of wonderful moments.  Evallyn loved the game of baseball, and she was a devoted fan of the Colorado Rockies.  She even kept statistics of the players at one time.  She enjoyed knitting, making dolls and afghans, writing stories and poetry, and reading.  She also enjoyed going for drives, and just recently enjoyed a month’s stay in Arizona with her daughters.  For many years she hosted an annual Fourth of July party in her yard, and she enjoyed counting how many people would arrive each year.  She loved her family and was a devoted mother and grandmother.  She will be greatly missed by them all.
