EVELYN RUTH BREMER, daughter of Alfred and Laura (Consoer) Hattendorf, was born September 11, 1921 in Ocheyedan, Iowa. She attended Zion Lutheran Parochial School and graduated from Ocheyedan High School. She attended college and taught rural school in Horton Township after which she moved to California until the war ended. She then returned to Iowa and worked at the defense plant in Burlington, Iowa. Evelyn married Basil Bremer on August 10, 1947 at Zion Lutheran Church in Ocheyedan. In 1955 the family moved into a home in Luverne, Minnesota where she and Basil raised three children; Dwight, Glenda and Gordon. Evelyn then went to work at Montgomery Wards, then at the Rock County Auditor's Office for 19 years and also sold real estate for a time. She volunteered at the Minnesota Veterans Home and the Rock County Community Library. Basil preceded her in death on October 31, 1994. Evelyn continued to reside in their home until she moved to Poplar Creek Estates in December, 2010. In October 2013, Evelyn became a resident at the Good Samaritan Society - Mary Jane Brown Home in Luverne, where on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 she died peacefully at the age of 92 years, four months and 24 days.

Evelyn enjoyed sewing, jewelry-making, music, architecture, fishing, family vacations, current affairs and 'Thursday Afternoon Just For Fun Club.'
