Teresa Marie Evans, 64, of Palisade, Neb., passed away November 24, 2011 after a lengthy fight against cancer in their ranch home in Hayes County, Neb.

One of Terri’s goals after spending five weeks in a hospital receiving treatments for cancer was to go home. She got her wish to be home. She was treated by the hospice nurses who came every day and by her primary care-giver, husband Darrell Evans. She always enjoyed the visits made by neighbors and many friends – and the countless number of cards and thoughts in her behalf.

Teresa was the daughter of C.J. and Dorothy Marie Donaldson.

Terri grew up in McCook, Neb., at the family home. She attended McCook Schools through Jr. High, graduating from high school at Hastings High in 1965. Her childhood roots were always firmly planted in McCook, Neb., and she graduated from McCook Junior College. She also attended Colorado State University.

She enjoyed a full life. Being the mother of four active kids, there was never a dull moment with school activities, 4-H and FFA. Terri drove a school bus for a few years.

She enjoyed her flock of laying hens, gardening, and her flower beds. Terri was always ready to lend a steady hand in the operation of their ranch – be it sorting hogs or working calves.
