She was the loving daughter of Floyd and Mandy Hyatt, the beloved sister of 4 sisters and 4 brothers, the cherished wife of Raymond Thornbrue and the sweetest Mother ever to Eugene and Denise. Evelyn attended Edmond High School where she met Raymond. She lived 22 years of her adult life in sacrifice for our country while Raymond served in the Air Force. She was well traveled and saw this country they protected with the wide eyes of a child. She appreciated the beauty and wonder of nature and enjoyed the simple things in life.
