Evelyn L. Dallman

Evelyn passed away March 23, 2016 at the University of Washington Medical Center.

She was born Nov. 11, 1926, to Frank and Lena Driscoll in Langley. Evelyn was raised on the family farm at Mutiny Bay. She attended Mutiny Bay School before Langley High School, and graduated early in 1944 to attend nurses training at St. Cabrini Hospital in Seattle.

During her training, she met her husband Howard Dallman, while he was stationed in the Northwest following his tour as a pilot in the 8th Army Air Corps. They were married in Milwaukee, Wisc. on Feb. 13, 1947. Evelyn worked as a nurse in Milwaukee before she and her husband started their family. They moved to Prairie Village, Kansas, in 1954, where they raised their three children — Roger, Doug and Nancy.

Whidbey Island had a special place in her heart. She and Howard returned to the island in 1989 where they partook in Friday night dinners at the South Whidbey Rod and Gun Club, attended church at Trinity Lutheran and spent time with friends and family.

The Driscoll family included her three brothers and sisters Irene, Frank, Ed, Gert, Loretta, and Chuck. Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Lena Driscoll, her husband, Howard Dallman, and her siblings, Frank, Ed and Rose Driscoll. She is survived by her three children, Roger (Kathy)and Doug (Becky) Dallman and Nancy (Wally) Jordan; eight grandchildren, Andrew, Adam, and Evi Dallman, Matt,(Kimi) Zach and Ben Dallman, Lucas (Richelle) and Craig (Deborah) Jordan; two step-grandchildren, Jimmy and Laura Allen; and seven great-grandchildren, Branch, Jones, and Evelyn Dallman, Andrew Jordan, Noah Dallman, Addie and Walter Jordan.

Evelyn passed away knowing all of her children and grandchildren loved her dearly. She will be missed and remembered for her kindness to those around her and for her fiery nature. For those fortunate enough to have met our mother, we ask you not to feel sorrow for her passing but instead remember and cherish the moments that made her time on earth a blessing for us all.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland. She will be interred at Bayview Cemetery, alongside her husband Howard. For those wishing to do so, memorial contributions can be made to the Trinity Lutheran Church, Freeland Washington.
