Fromberg — Evelyn Lucille Bauwens passed away peacefully on April 22, 2020 from complications of lung cancer. She was 82.

Evelyn was born on January 10th, 1938 to Alex and Frances (Koch) Frank. She was the fifth of nine children Donnie, John, Marian (Starnes), Jose (Strever), Roy, Rita (Kroll), Norman, and Connie (Reiter). After graduating from Laurel High School in Montana in 1956, she married Albert Carl Bauwens. Together they raised six children, Alan, Scott, Julie, Kim, Randy, and Shawn on the family farm in Fromberg.

Evelyn enjoyed caring for her family, cooking for the hired hands, and helping on the farm when she could. She was very active in the community and church. Always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.

After her husband passed away in 1984, Evelyn then worked at numerous jobs such as being a cook, a bartender, and a waitress. She also got her CNA license and helped care for elderly in their homes. Evelyn loved to crochet, paint, and putter in her garden. However, her true passion was her family. Anytime she could get them together, she was the happiest.

Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, husband Albert, her sons Alan and Shawn, granddaughter Melissa Ann Jones, sister Josie, and brother Donnie. She is survived by her children Scott (Deb) Bauwens, Julie (Mike) Jones, Kim (Ede) Bauwens, and Randy (Megan) Bauwens; brothers John, Roy, and Norman; and sisters Marian, Rita, and Connie. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren: Laura (Alan), Janice, Kristin, and Marcie (Scott), Walt, Kandee, Carl, and Lindsey (Julie), Trent (Kim), and Tyson (Randy) and 10 great grandchildren. She is loved by so many and will be missed dearly.

May you walk arm and arm with Jesus and hold hands with our Father and our brothers. It hurts that you have passed on but the memory of your thoughtfulness and motherly love will be in our hearts forever.

There will be a private viewing and internment for immediate family only. Memorial mass will be held at a later date at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Fromberg.
