She married Gene Dyer February 6, 1952. They lived in Ames, Boone, Adel, Roland and Story City. Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, husband Gene in December 1995 and 4 siblings, Francis Ackerman, Jeanne Cavender, Larry Ackerman and an infant brother Paul Edward.

Evelyn was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed dancing, flower gardening, sewing, bird watching and any activities surrounding family and friends. Her time with her friends playing cards and having coffee at McDonalds each morning was a pleasure she enjoyed almost daily. Family remember traditions of playing Scrabble and Cribbage late into the night hours during get togethers. We all enjoyed the Story City Carousel numerous times throughout the years of visiting her and spending Scandinavian Days in Story City. Evelyn was a member of St. Celicia Catholic Church in Ames, Iowa and attended mass with her friend Maxine Jacobson of Story City, Iowa.
