Evelyn was born on September 25, 1948 in Webster City, Iowa to Russell and Ethel (Crovisier) Horton.

The couple was united in marriage on February 17, 1968 at Holy Rosary Church in Fort Dodge. Evelyn and James lived in Plano, TX for 31 years before moving to Wylie, TX in 2015.

Evelyn worked as the Cash Office Manager for the East Plano Tom Thumb (Safeway) for 19 years. She was devoted to her job and she was well regarded by co-workers throughout the Tom Thumb chain. Evelyn knew many of her customers by name and often took the time to ask about their families.

Evelyn, James and their daughter, Kimberly, loved to travel and spent many enjoyable vacations in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Yellowstone-Grand Tetons National Parks and Kauai and Maui, Hawaii through-out the years. She was planning a vacation to Prague and the Czech Republic to research the Konvalinka family tree prior to her death.

Evelyn is survived by her husband, James; children, daughter Kimberly A. Konvalinka; son Jeremy A. (April) Konvalinka and grandson Jace A. Konvalinka. She also survived by many brothers and sisters.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Russell and Ethel Horton and her in-laws Charles and Eileen Konvalinka.
