In memory of
EVELYN CARPENTER June 12, 1954 to October 10, 2016. Evelyn was born in Jasper Texas in 1954. She moved to Eureka as a baby where she graduated Eureka High Class of '72. Evelyn was a strong beautiful woman who was not afraid to stand up for her rights and principals. She did lose one battle, she fought for her health for the last 7 years. She eventually lost the battle to lung disease on October 10, 2016 at the age of 62. As a single mother Evelyn worked hard throughout her life to raise her two sons whom she loved dearly. She is survived by her sons Adam and Matthew Carpenter, grandchildren Adison, Cyruss, Matthew, Sadi, Kaylani, and Kylee, her family Jimmy Pannell, Mary Holdcraft, May & Bob Basler, Alice & Tony Hernandez, and Betty Odel. She will be missed by all of her friends especially Ronn Jorgensen who was, and still is, a close family friend and always stood by her in her time of need. Goodbye Evelyn, may your path to heaven be an easy one. Services for Evelyn will be performed by Preacher Check Winfrey, and held at Ocean View Cemetery October 19th, at 3pm. There will be a potluck following services at Calvary Baptist Church, 3400 F St, Eureka CA. Please sign the guestbook at www.times-standard.com
