Evelyn, daughter of Clarence and Ruth Clingaman, was a native of Elmira, Ohio, and lived most of her life in Toledo. A lifelong Lutheran, she was an active member of Memorial Lutheran Church in Toledo, Redeemer Lutheran Church in Birmingham, Michigan, and most recently King of Glory Lutheran Church in Sylvania, Ohio.

Evelyn was the salutatorian of her high school class and a basketball player. Totally devoted to her family, Evelyn provided a loving, stable home for her husband and children. She was a hard-working homemaker, with many friends and no enemies. Leading in a quiet way, she was elected President of her community Garden Club in Michigan, President of the King of Glory Lutheran Women's Guild, and foreman of a jury in a Toledo murder trial.
