Evelyn Marion Johnson, age 68, of Hutchinson, died Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, at St. Mary’s Care Center in Winsted.
She was born Sept. 18, 1944, in Robbinsdale, the daughter of William and Rosamond (Vanderweist) Johnson.
Evelyn enjoyed watching wrestling on television. She loved animals, especially her cats, and she enjoyed going to different zoos to look at the animals.
In her younger years, she was known to “walk on the wild side.” As she got older, the wild side left her and she became a caregiver to everyone that she met.
Evelyn is survived by her daughter, Kristine Smith; two grandchildren, Janice and Violet; four great-grandchildren; her siblings, Don (Julie) Johnson of Maple Plain, Larry (Jill) Johnson of Cambridge, Carol Johnson of Moundsview, and Theresa Johnson of Winsted; many nieces and nephews, and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Dottie Fischer; and a brother, Richard Johnson.
A memorial service took place Saturday, Dec. 8 at noon at the Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted. There was visitation from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at the funeral home.
The Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted assisted the family with arrangements.
