Posted Condolences:


  1. So sorry for your loss.

  2. may she rest in peace. much love to the family.

  3. I have so many fond memories of Aunt Aileen, and family visits/gatherings at her house: eating wild turkey and deer, playing with the kittens, and gathering eggs just to name a few. Aileen also made my confirmation, graduation and numerous childhood birthday cakes. I was blessed to grow up just a few miles from Aileen, and my most recent memory of her is walking in the tall trees with her and Mom to take pictures. Aunt Aileen will be greatly missed.

  4. Rest in peace, Aileen. Lots of good memories growing up around her at Grace Church. Love to the family

  5. I’m so sorry to learn of Aunt Aileen’s passing. Annette just saw it now on the Evan’s web page. We all have so many fond memories of her and and the Tall tree ranch. She will be remembered as the hard-working farm wife who loved the land and their cattle and knew her way around the machinery as well as any man. Her huge garden and sharing of her garden bounty and oh yes, her cakes! Sometimes I think her and my mom were in a competition to see who could bake the best cakes! LOL! So many good memories. She will be greatly missed.

    Deloris Bouret, Annette Bouret, Mary Landeis, and Joe Bouret
