Patricia Lorraine Evarts
Aug. 8, 1932 – Feb. 14, 2020
Mom left this earthly life on Valentine’s Day to be with Dad and continue their eternal journey.
Born in Weiser, Idaho, Patricia Lorraine Evarts married George “Ray” Raymond Evarts and lived on the Oregon coast, owning grocery stores. In 1961 their dream led to driving to Alaska on vacation with three kids. They bought a grocery store in Anchorage while adding two more boys and raising their family. In 1976 the family moved to Homer and built Kachemak Food Cache and the Kachemak Center.
Pat loved Homer and was elected to the Homer City Council and volunteered at every opportunity. As Ray operated the grocery store, Mom shared their home. There were “no strangers” once she cooked her fried halibut for you. Walking was her passion, in any weather and with anyone who could keep up with her. Her special times with Ray were riding in the semi with him to Anchorage and back, sometimes Seattle and back. Her greatest joy was loving her family and raising them with the beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She loved giving service in the Temples.
Her family will miss her and meet again someday. She is survived by Linda (Michael) Osif, Monte (Marcia) Evarts, Lorie (Bruce) Henderson, Marty (Fran) Evarts and Myles (Connie) Evarts; 18 grandkids; and many, many great-grandkids.
Mom will be laid to rest next to her companion in Salmon, Idaho. The family appreciates your many shared memories and prayers.
