The Piano Brothers

Evelyn Doris McLevis (Johnson) died peacefully in Augustana Health Care Center on January 6, 2017 in Moose Lake, Minnesota at the age of 94.

She was born on September 9, 1922, in Arthyde, Minnesota to John Alfred and Ellora Johnson. She graduated from Willow River High School in 1939. She was united in marriage to Franklin McLevis on August 23, 1947. She was a homemaker who loved to cook, play cards, solve crossword puzzles and polka with her husband. You never left her house hungry and to us she made the world's best banana bread.

Evelyn is survived by her son, Carey McLevis; daughter, Fay (Steve) Lyons; grandchildren Shawn McLevis, Brady (Laurie) Lyons, Tricia (Brian) Williams, Bridget (Bryan) Hunter and Christa (Darin) Henninger; 11 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren; sister-in-law Lois Johnson and several nieces and nephews.

Evelyn is preceded in death by her husband, Franklin, her brothers, Harold, Marvin and Ervin, her sisters, Hazel and Ethel.

Per Evelyn's request there will be no services held. A private burial will take place in Riverside Cemetery, Barnum MN.

Arrangements are by Souder-Handevidt Funeral and Cremation Service of Cloquet, Minnesota.
