Evelyn was born December 28, 1935, to Miles and Virginia Terrell Bohne in Salt Lake City, Utah. On February 15, 1952, Evelyn married Ernest Vartan in Torrence, California. They moved from Norwalk, California in 1996 to Bull Shoals, where she was a member of the Bull Shoals Book Club. She was a loving mother who enjoyed bowling, boating and water skiing. She never learned to swim, but her love of water skiing helped her overcome her fear of water. Evelyn was a member of the Retail Clerks Union and the Good Sams RV Club. She had a special love for her dogs, three of which she had named Nikki.
