Evelyn Antonia (Kander) Coufal was born on April 28, 1931 near Clarkson, NE to Elmer and Antonia (Bohaboj) Kander. She grew up in the Clarkson area and graduated from Clarkson High School in 1949.

On June 15, 1949, she was united in marriage to Richard Coufal at St. John’s Nepomucene Catholic Church in Howells, NE. The couple farmed northwest of Howells, where Evelyn was an active farm wife, and in 1984 moved onto a feedlot north of Howells. In 1992, they moved to Columbus, where Evelyn worked at K-Mart and HyVee before returning to Howells in 1998.

Evelyn was a member of St. John’s Nepomucene Catholic Church, and Christian Mothers. She loved to sew, which was evident by the numerous quilts and tie blankets she made for her family. Evelyn enjoyed playing cards and assembling puzzles. Also very dear in her heart was her little dog Amber. Her family was her pride and joy, whether it was the tradition of Sunday Dinner after church or attending her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s activities.

Sending prayers for all your family at this time of sorrow. Her life was always a celebration of the love she had for her family. Although it's been many years since I have seen Evelyn, I remember her very well. She shared her kids with me when I taught school in Howells and I enjoyed them all. God bless you as you celebrate her life
