Evelyn LaVerne Leishman Wolfe died peacefully in Arroyo Grande, California on November 27, 2019 at the age of 93. Her Spirit left mortality as she entered it—with strength, determination, perseverance, endurance and an understanding and compassionate heart.
She was born in San Francisco, California on January 7, 1926 to Adalbert Francis Leishman and Rena Ethel Shawver. She was the loving sister of her older brother, Melvin Francis. Evelyn adored and loved her older brother. He completed his mortal journey in 1954.
She married Charles Hennick in 1943 in Ketchikan, Alaska. They married in a Methodist Church. She was proud of her green dress she wore that day, she said, “married in green you’d be a queen.” She had an impeccable sense of style and poise for the duration of her life.
Evelyn was happy with the duration of her marriage to Charles, as she emphasized, “were married five years, that’s not too bad.” In later life, she married Jack Noel Wolfe in 1969 in Monterey, California. She had many happy memories with him at Pismo Beach in California.
She had two sons with Charles, Loren Deane (deceased) and Daryl Wayne. Her sons were the love and guiding light of her mortal journey. She took great pride in her sons and dedicated her life in strengthening her intellectual wisdom and talents.
She was an avid piano player. She loved music and dancing. Her passion for music was passed on to her posterity. She loved cooking freshly caught fish that her son, Loren brought home from deep sea fishing trips.
She took great joy in her correspondence with her son, Daryl. He consistently sent her many gifts and loving gestures. She loved her sons.
She had a great love for her family. She wished she had the opportunity to spend more time with them, and stated, “I wish I could spend more time with my family.” She wanted her posterity to know that they had a grandma that loved them.
Evelyn loved to serve. She was a great friend to many and brought joy and love into their lives. At the end of life, she lived at Graceful Living and loved her many friends. She treated everyone equally and desired that others felt her love and concern for them.
She is preceded in death by her older brother, Melvin who she loved with all her heart, her son Loren, her spouse, Jack and former spouse, Charles. She is loved and survived by her son, Daryl Wayne Hennick, (Margo), her daughter-in-law, Anette Hennick and her many grandchildren and loving friends.
During the course of her life, Evelyn was searching for meaning and purpose. She is free from the bondage of her mortality. Her enthusiastic and loving Spirit has now found what she was searching for…we love you and until we meet again…See you later, “kid.”
Evelyn will be buried near her son, Loren at Memorial Mountain View Cemetery in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Services will be determined at a later date.
