Evelyn Mary Ann Fuchs was born January 29, 1923 at rural Springfield, SD to Matt and Emma (Schmoll) Arneson.   She passed away on January 29, 2014 at the Tyndall Good Samaritan Center where she has been a resident since November 2006.  During this time she renewed many friendships and made many new ones.
Evelyn grew up in Avon and graduated from Avon High School.   She then worked at Gelfand’s in Chamberlain followed by jobs at the Tyndall Bakery and with Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Evelyn married Joe L. Fuchs at Tyndall on May 19, 1947 at St. Leo Catholic parsonage and they started married life in Herrick, SD.  After spending many years in the Gregory area they returned to Tyndall in 1960.  In addition to being a homemaker, Evelyn worked for M-Tron Industries and then became the Tyndall Public Librarian.  After 21 years at the library she retired in 1994, but continued to be an avid reader until her death.  She also served as an Election Official for many years. She was Historical Coordinator for Tyndall’s Centennial Publications Committee and was a member of St. Leo Catholic Church and Altar Society, American Legion Auxiliary, VFW Auxiliary, South Dakota Library Association and Bon Homme Heritage Association.   She conducted Girls State Orientation Sessions for District 7 American Legion Auxiliary for many years and served as an officer in most of her organizations.  She will be most remembered for her smile and positive attitude.
Evelyn is survived by her two daughters: Joanne (William) Balvin, Tyndall and Karen (Randy) Rasmussen, Dixon, Nebraska; five grandchildren: Matt Balvin and Emily (Scott) Balvin Weber and Daniel, Jeremy and Ryan Rasmussen; and one great-grandson: Tyler Weber.  She is also survived by two sisters: Lucille (Vern) Bures and Hazel Ferwerda and three brothers: Clarence, Frank and Don (Marie) Arneson.
Evelyn was preceded by her husband Joe on December 30, 2000, infant granddaughter Kelly Rasmussen, her parents, brother Lester and sister and husband Gladys and Carl Kryger, sister-in-law Kathryn Arneson and brother-in-law Noel Ferwerda.
