She was the daughter of Robert and Mabelle (Moe) Fulton. She was raised on the family farm east of town, graduating from the Carthage High School in 1946. Following high school, she attended the Sioux Valley Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1949. Following graduation, she was employed at the John Burns Memorial Hospital in Belle Fourche. In the fall of 1950 Evelyn agreed to a blind date, where she met her future husband, Manuel Kindsfater. They were married March 25, 1951 in Belle Fourche. To this union two sons were born: John (Jack) and Alan. Following their marriage, they moved to the Kindsfater farm east of Belle Fourche, where they began their life together. Evelyn became a “stay at home mom” until 1973, at which time she went back to work at the Belle Fourche Senior Care Center. She retired from nursing in 1993. Evelyn was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Belle Fourche. For many years, she played the piano for Sunday services. She made sure her boys attended Sunday School whenever possible. Evelyn and Manuel owned two different mobile homes near Iron Creek Lake where they spent many weekends relaxing and playing games and visiting with family and friends. Manuel died in 2009, and in 2012 Evelyn moved from the farm to Palm’s Country View Eldercare. In 2016 she moved into the Belle Fourche Healthcare Center. Evelyn is survived by her sons, Jack (Kayla) of Aladdin WY, Alan (Mary Beth) of Belle Fourche; 6 grandchildren, Camille Smith, Eric Kindsfater, Amy Donaldson, Katy Kindsfater, David Kindsfater, Adam Kindsfater; 12 great grandchildren; and 2 nieces, Vicki Campbell and Sherri Donaldson.
