Evelyn was born on October 16, 1930, in Bismarck, ND to Enos and Florence Strandemo. The Strandemos resided on a farm near Baldwin, ND where Evelyn was raised with her two brothers and one sister, all of whom predeceased her.
At about age 20, Evelyn married Kenneth Bourgois of Baldwin, ND. They farmed and raised their family near Baldwin, north of Bismarck.
Evelyn enjoyed spending time with her family, including her husband, children, her parents and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was an excellent seamstress and an excellent cook and baker. She also helped outside with the farm work and could operate a tractor with the best of them.
In later years, after her husband, Ken, had passed away, she moved to Overlook Ridge, an over 55 apartment building in Bismarck. She greatly enjoyed the new friends that she made there.
Evelyn is survived by her children, Tim Bourgois (Helen), Thomas Bourgois (Sandy), James Bourgois (Tammy), Marc Bourgois, and Nancy Bourgois Graham (Thomas Graham). Evelyn had ten grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Baldwin Cemetery
