Obituary of Evelyn Caroline Gilbertson

Evelyn Caroline Gilbertson, 101 of Floodwood passed away on Monday, April 19, 2021 in Villa Vista Care Center in Cromwell. She was born May 28, 1919 in Cedar Valley to George and Carrie (LaPere) Snyder. Evelyn married Henry Gilbertson on September 17, 1938 in Floodwood. She worked as a clerk for Naegili Drug, which later became Neary Drug for 24 years. Evelyn was an active member of the community, spending a lot of her time at the Senior Center. She enjoyed calling bingo weekly and volunteering her time. Evelyn not only participated in the County Fair where she won sweepstakes and countless blue ribbons for her baking, canning and quilting; she was asked to be the Grand Marshall. You could find her in her raspberry patch each summer and when that became too much to keep up, she was in Cookie Tahja's patch into her late nineties. For the past three years Evelyn would spend a day each month at the Halden Town Hall tying quilts that would be donated to the area hospitals. Evelyn took pride in her family and loved to spend time with all of them. Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, Henry; sisters, Helen (Ernest) Olbekson, Albertine (Bellcourt) Crist, Barbara Snyder, and Lorraine (Matt) Maki; brothers, Frank (Virgie) Snyder and Leonard Snyder. She is survived by two daughters, Marlys (David) Peterson of Torrance, CA and Adele (Rodney) Niskanen of Floodwood; sister-in-law, Helen Snyder of Floodwood; six grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
