February 14, 1927 – June 29, 2018
Mildred Evelyn Conger, 91, of Greenwood Village, passed away on June 29th. Evelyn was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Valentine's Day of 1927 to Robert Wade Grubb and Annie Dunbrack Tait. She was known to many as Evelyn, but most importantly as beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
In 1948, Evelyn married the love of her life, Charles Robert Conger. They brought up 5 children together. After 68 years of marriage, Charles preceded Evelyn in death.
Evelyn was a bright light to her family, always putting everyone before herself. She was a true caregiver, taking care of many family members during the times they needed her, or they were ill. Her children classified her hobby as being an awesome mom, she was always there, watching, making sure they were doing well. Evelyn was honest, walked by faith, and was devoted to her family and God. She loved to sing to her children, and many times they remember hearing her beautiful voice sing Amazing Grace. Later in her life Evelyn enjoyed playing cards with her children, going traveling with Chuck in their RV, and reading.
Evelyn joins her parents, Robert and Annie; her husband, Charles "Chuck/Bob", and great granddaughter, Bailey with the Lord.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Celia (Wayne) Bremer, Barbara (Chuck) Lewis, Darla Archuleta, Cindie (Lloyd) Chavez, and Tait (Angela) Conger; 18 grandchildren, Troy, Lisa, Terra, Michelle, Tammy, Bonnie, William, Donna, Rodrigo, Angela, Lloyd III, Anthony, Nick, Jesse, Tess and Cody, Timothy, and Christopher; 33 great grandchildren, Devin, Brittany, Morgan, Madison, Savannah, Stephanie, Destiny, Jacob, Tyler, Dorian, Lloyd IV, Korbyan, Franchesca, Violet, Cade, Jude, Madden, Kyran, Gabriel, Ace, Tobi, Brady, Declan, Monica, Elizabeth, Robert, Tzigane, Neo, Yaretzi, Dillon, Brody, Connor, and Mason; 7 great, great grandchildren, Bentley, Briana, Alaysha, Ariana, Brooklyn, Josiah, and Leonardo; great, great, great grandson, David; and many friends and extended family members.

Have known this dear woman for 25 years. What a great legacy she built with her special husband, Bob. Few women have her grace and wit and a smile and laughter that endeared her to all. Many good memories of Bob and Evelyn being with me on visits to shut-ins. Look forward to seeing her again.
