She attended school in Portis and Smith Center in Kansas until 1945, when her family moved to Nemaha County in Nebraska. Evelyn then attended school in Nemaha, Nebraska.

The couple raised their sons on a farm near Stella, Nebraska, but would later divorce. Evelyn, in addition to taking care of her family and the household, helped Hobe with the farming and their dairy herd. She later owned and operated Anderson’s Tavern in Stella. She ran the tavern for 29 years until selling it in 1999. Evelyn was a member of the United Methodist Church in Nemaha. She was a great cook, known for her fried chicken. She loved tending to her yard and garden and raising chickens. In her spare time she liked to bowl, and continued bowling for many years.
