She lived on the family ranch south of Chadron, attending Chadron Prep, Chadron State College and teaching in rural schools for several years. In 1952, Evelyn married Don Serbousek. After a brief time in the Wyoming oil fields and working as a ranch hand, Don and Evelyn decided to move back to the ranch south of Chadron and raise their family. During this time, Evelyn was involved in gardening, her extension club and helping on the ranch. They moved to Chadron in 1996, where Evelyn remained until 2006. Evelyn enjoyed meeting friends for coffee and playing cards. She moved to an assisted living facility in Lafayette and later to Broomfield, Colorado where she could be nearer to her son and his family. She enjoyed many of the outings and activities that were offered at her residence.
