August 24, 1972 ~ February 16, 2013
Evelyn Marie (Miller) Larimer passed from this world too soon into the arms of her Heavenly Father on February 16, 2013 while having fun with her family.
Evelyn was born in Missoula, Montana on August 24, 1972 to Lawrence Redman and Mary Miller. She was raised in Missoula, moving to Frenchtown for junior high & high school. She graduated from Frenchtown High School in 1991 and attended the University of Montana for two years. On May 29, 1993 she married Scott Roy Larimer in Seeley Lake, MT. They spent their first few years of marriage in Missoula where the birth of their first son, Alex took place. They moved to Nebraska to be closer to Scott's family & increased the size of their family by two, with Evie giving birth to their sons: Spencer and Paul. While raising three boys, Evie took a part time position working for Casey's. Later they moved to Minnesota to be closer to her sister, Kim and family. It was here that they completed their family with son, Nick and daughter, Libbie. While raising her family Evelyn became an assistant manager at Casey's. She touched so many lives with her bright smile and positive attitude. Evie loved giving out hugs. She would never let you go unless she gave you a hug first. Her hobbies included gardening, cooking, and most of all spending time with her family. As her kids would tell you, "She was the best Mom in the world."
