Born February 3, 1929, south of Nevada, Evelyn Marie Smith was the daughter of James and Marguerite (Heintz) Fitzgerald. She attended school in Garden Grove and Nevada, graduating from Nevada High School.

On October 16, 1957, Evelyn was united in marriage to Richard Dean Smith in Sioux City, Iowa. The couple made their home in Sioux City for several years, then returned to Nevada where they raised their six children and lived the remainder of their lives.

Evelyn was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Nevada. She was an excellent baker and each Christmas shared her delicious homemade cinnamon rolls with family and friends.
