A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Monday, October 30, 2017 at the Basilica of St. James in Jamestown for Louise M. Evenson, 78, Jamestown, and formerly of Wimbledon, who died early Wednesday morning October 25, 2017 at Eventide in Jamestown.
Interment at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Jamestown.
Louise Verville was born March 16, 1939 in Olga, the daughter of Arsene Verville and Irene (Beauchamp) Verville. She attended the local school and graduated from the Osnabrock High School in 1957. She and Larry Evenson were married February 17, 1958 at the St. Joseph Catholic Church in Osnabrock. They made their home in Grafton, later Jamestown. In 1968, Larry purchased his own barber shop in Wimbledon and she did daycare. Following the death of her husband in 1989, she continued to reside in Wimbledon until 1990 when she moved to Jamestown. She entered Roseadele in 2013 and Eventide in 2014 where she resided until her death. She was a member of the Basilica of St. James in Jamestown. Her house was the gathering place for coffee and cards, as she was happiest with a house full of people filled with laughter. She loved to bake for family and friends, and whistled, danced, and sang as she worked in the kitchen.
Surviving are her five children; seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; one brother Gene (Diane) Verville, Bella Vista, Ariz.; two sisters Lea Waltz and Yvonne (Jerry) Kruk, all of Langdon.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter-in-law (Chong Son), and sister (Corrine).
