EVELYN WATSON

March 22, 1938 — July 11, 2022

Evelyn was born March 22, 1938 to Jake and Clara Ratzlaff in Bakersfield, CA and passed away July 11, 2022 at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital.

Evelyn lived a very busy home life helping to raise her four sons and dutifully taking them to church every Sunday.
