Evelyn was born April 2, 1922, on a farm near Atwater, to Charles and Alma (Peterson) Heining.

After graduating from Grove City High School in 1940, she worked various jobs in Litchfield.

While working at REA, she met the love of her life, Roger (Bunch) Lundeen. Evelyn and Roger were married June 25, 1949. They moved to the Lundeen family farm, working hard and building their happy life together.

Evelyn loved to cook and was an excellent baker. She always had the coffee pot on for guests, and a fresh baked treat. Evelyn was also busy with her handiwork and was so proud when she won blue ribbons and a “champion” at the county fair.

After Roger passed away, in 2004, Evelyn moved off the farm and resided at Evergreen Apartments in Hutchinson. She was so happy there, and she loved spending time with her family – especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

When she could no longer live independently, she moved to Harmony River Living Center in April of 2016.

In addition to her husband, Roger, Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents; and an infant brother.

She is survived by her daughter, Linda (Don) Pankake of Hutchinson; grandchildren Gary (Kelley) Pankake, Michelle (Aaron) Dahlman, Scott Lundeen Jr, and Stephanie Lundeen (Robert Sturges); and great-grandchildren Braxton and Brielle Pankake, Lars, Evelyn and Ivan Dahlman, Kali (Isiah) Sweet, Skyler Lundeen, and Owen and Jack Lundeen.

Evelyn is further survived by her sister, Ardella Voigt of Litchfield; sister-in-law Connie Flowers of Georgia; nieces Sandra Meyer, Laurie Boll, Janelle Hoekstra, and Venita McCormick; nephews Byron Lundeen, Charles Voigt, and Richard Voigt; as well as special friends, Robert and Delores Powell of Hutchinson and other family members and friends.
