EVELYN B. TRAUTMAN was born on January 12, 1922, to Alfred and Katherine (Shriver) Cyriacks on a farm in Lake Benton Township of Lincoln County, Minnesota. She was raised on the farm south of Lake Benton where she attended country school in District 10 and then Lake Benton High School. After her graduation, she attended General Beadle College (Dakota State) in Madison, South Dakota for one year of teacher training and taught for four years at a country school. On June 17, 1945, she was united in marriage to Elmer Trautman at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lake Benton. Following their marriage, they farmed for 40 years in Verdi Township of Lincoln County. When they retired from farming in 1985, they moved into Lake Benton. Elmer preceded Evelyn in death on November 9, 1998. On Monday, May 25, 2020, Evelyn died peacefully at Central Minnesota Senior Care in Lake Benton at the age of 98 years, four months, and 13 days.
