They opened several cafes in Groesbeck, The Chuck Wagon and Shorty’s, and were known for the best hamburgers, barbeque, and chili in town. Her husband’s season ended April 16, 1987. This November 1st. would have been 70 years of their marriage. She hung on an extra 30 years after losing J.W. Grandma’s all-time favorite color was yellow, and her favorite thing to do was take pictures and plant flowers. Also, she loved horses and her pet cow, Prissy. Evelyn is survived by her only daughter, Mary Evelyn Willett of Groesbeck; 3 grandchildren: Laurie Ann Seymore and husband Mike, Joey Wayne Magouirk and wife Brittany, and Steven Carl Willett and wife Melissa.
