Genevieve Evans passed away at home from cause's incident to old age. She was born January 17th 1919 to Oscar Keilgaard Hansen and Helena Demaris Anderson in Provo, Utah.

She had an ideal childhood growing up in a nice home on several acres of land on what is now part of the BYU campus.

She and her family lived in Long Beach California from 1956 to 1978 at which time she and Harry moved back to Utah. Genevieve considered her greatest accomplishment that of being a good mother to her children and wife to her husband and was primarily a homemaker although she also taught school.

Genevieve graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA degree in English. She also attended the University of Utah and the University of Arizona. She had a beautiful voice. She loved music and the arts and could still sing hundreds of songs from memory up until her death.

Everyone who got to know her soon learned of her quick wit and original sense of humor. She is survived by her three sons, Harry Gregory Evans, Trent Keilgaard Evans and Geoffrey Oscar Evans; two grandchildren Leif Kemp and Destiny Evans; and seven nieces and nephews.
