Evelyn Coleman

January 17, 1921 — July 18, 2016

Evelyn Coleman, 95, died at her home in Boulder City, Nevada on July 18, 2016.  Evelyn was born Dorothy Evelyn Deloney in Ozark, Alabama on January 17, 1921.  Her parents were William Henry Deloney and Ada Fountain Deloney.

Evelyn grew up on her parents' farm near Ozark.  After graduating from high school and Business College, Evelyn went to work as a civilian employee for the Army at Fort Rucker, Alabama.  At Fort Rucker, Evelyn met her future husband, Paul Coleman, who was a Master Sergeant Drill Instructor at Fort Rucker.  Paul and Evelyn were married on August 16, 1943 at the First Baptist Church in Ozark.  On September 9, 1944, Evelyn gave birth to her only son, William, in Dothan, Alabama.

In 1956, the family moved to Arizona because of Paul's health.  After living at Grand Canyon for two years and Phoenix for many years, Paul and Evelyn moved to Yuma, Arizona, where Paul worked as Controller and part owner of the local TV station, and Evelyn went to work as an accountant for the Bureau of Reclamation.

Around 1978, Paul and Evelyn moved to Boulder City, Nevada, where Evelyn went to work for the Bureau of Reclamation as an accountant.  She eventually retired from the Bureau of Reclamation after working for the federal government for 23 years.  After Evelyn retired, Paul and Evelyn spent many years touring virtually every state in the USA in their RV.  Paul died in Boulder City in 2006.

Evelyn is survived by her son, William, five nephews, and three nieces.  Rest in Peace, Evelyn.  May the pure white light of God's Holy Love shine upon you always.

Services will be held on Tuesday July 26, 2016 at 12: 00 noon at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.  Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at
