They were married 31 Oct 1942 in Parke County, Indiana.Evelyn met her second husband, Jerry Dean Lunog in San Diego,California. They were married 13 Apr 1963 in San Diego County,California. Jerry was younger than Evelyn, but they seemed to getalong well together. Jerry was in the U.S. Air Force and wasstationed at Rantoul, Air Base, Illinois near the Champaign/Urbanaarea until it closed. Eventually, Jerry and Evelyn seperated. Sometime later Evelyn met August Ages, and had a long time lastingrelationship with "Augie". He was very supportive during her terminalillness, and cared for her a great deal. Augie was liked and acceptedby the family as her companion. In less than a year her daughterBeverly followed her in death, and approximately six months laterAugie succumbed also.
