Feb. 23, 1930 – Nov. 5, 2013

Born on Feb. 23, 1930, in Turner, Kan., the youngest of nine children, Clara May Campbell Evans passed away peacefully in the comfort of her Davis home on Nov. 5, 2013. A 34-year resident of Davis, she cherished the many wonderful and caring friends she made here.

She was a dedicated volunteer for Meals on Wheels and the Yolo County Elderly Nutrition Program. Clara was actively involved at the Davis Senior Center where she could be heard quietly (and frequently) shouting “BINGO!” while the other players grumbled about how lucky she was. She loved traveling and going on tours with her companions of the Davis Travelaires. She especially enjoyed the many great adventures and casino runs with her road trip buddies at Kennedy Place.
Clara was a devoted wife of 46 years to her late husband Jack Evans and a tireless, loving mother to their five surviving sons and their families: Thomas Evans and Gary Wilson of San Francisco, Robert Evans and Debbie Page of Cameron Park, Daniel Evans of Elk Grove and his son Andrew of Florida, Edward and Anett Evans (Baker) of Davis and their son Wyatt, and David and Catherine Evans of Lafayette and their sons Owen and Grady.

She is also survived by three stepchildren, Kathleen, Mark and Patsy, and one great-granddaughter, Brandy. She has two surviving brothers, Marvin and Robert in Kansas, with well over 100 nieces and nephews and their extended families.

Preceding her in death were three sisters, Audrey, Gertrude and Vivian; three brothers, Charles, James and Donald; and her grandson Vince.
The holidays have come and gone and they surely weren’t the same without her. We missed her amazing holiday cookies and candies but we’ll keep trying to make them as well as she did every single year. You are always in our thoughts and deeply in our hearts and we miss you dearly, especially today … Happy 84th birthday, Mom!
At her request, no services were held. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in the form of donations to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network or the American Cancer Society.
