Memorials may be given to the Monument Bible Church. Fond memories and condolences may be shared on for the Correll family.

Evelyn was born on February 12, 1931 in rural Paxton, Nebraska to Elmer and Eva (Gifford) McClain. She received her education in Arthur, Nebraska and returned to Arthur to be a school teacher herself. She taught there long enough to teach Eddie (youngest brother) for his first year.

She was united in marriage to Clarence Correll on August 29, 1954. Evelyn had five children: sons Denny, Tim and Brent and daughters Rox and Delight.

Her family was everything to her and spending time with them was her pride and joy. At Grandma Evie's the playroom was a favorite complete with hats and old dresses for the perfect tea party.

If she wasn't in the house cooking or baking, she was in the rodeo arena giving advice or at the ball diamond cheering on kids and grandkids. She was always there to help get grandkids to where they needed to be.

She was one that never forgot a birthday or anniversary always reaching out with a special call.

Evelyn is survived by her children Denny (Joleen) Correll, Tim (Wendy) Correll, Brent (Dusty) Correll, Rox (Jack) Hinrichs and Delight (Brad) Harris; 27 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren; two sisters Donna Daly and Loretta Valentine and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Clarence in 2020 and two brothers Roy and Eddie McClain.
