Evelyn was a consummate mother, wife and homemaker. She made numerous sacrifices for her children, knew the value of hard work and taught her children many of life’s most important lessons.

Evelyn, thoroughly enjoyed camping, fishing, mushroom hunting, and playing with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Evelyn was preceded in death by her loving husband Larry V. Glore, her parents, numerous brothers and sisters, and one grandson Devin R. Merrell.

She is survived by two daughters, Darla G. (Tom) Doering of Chillicothe, Melonie D. Glore of Peoria and one son, Darren R. Merrell (Kerry) of Milton Fla. She is also survived by one sister, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

A small private service will be held later for the family.
