Evelyn Welker, 93, passed away peacefully from natural causes on December 15th, 2021 in Eugene, Oregon. She lived a full life, pursuing passions like travel, sewing, swimming, long walks, and church activities, and will be fondly remembered and truly missed.
Evelyn was born July 31st, 1928 in Indianapolis, Indiana to parents Harold and Sylvina, and was one of eight children. In 1949 she married Carl Welker, and went on to have two children, Maribeth and Karl. They travelled the world together and lived in a variety of places including California, Guam, Japan, and Alaska.
Now that Evelyn has reached the end of her physical life on Earth, we keep in mind that it is just the beginning of an eternal and beautiful adventure as she joins husband Carl, son Karl “Buddy”, and several of her siblings in Heaven. She is survived by many loving family members, including daughter Maribeth, granddaughters Lisa, Bobbi, and Kimberly, and great grandchildren Cheyenne, Cody, Kaila, Cameron, and Ashley.
Evelyn’s ashes will be joining Carl’s at Roseburg National Cemetery. No memorial service has been planned at this time. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to SPARK Ministries at St. Peter Catholic Church.
