Evelyn was born in Edgar County, Illinois on November 22, 1921, the daughter of Edwin and Lillian (Honnold) Goble.  She was united in marriage to Wayne Pinnell on December 7, 1941 at the home of her parents.  Wayne preceded her in death in 2009 after sixty-seven years of marriage.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a son, Stephen C. Pinnell, and brothers, Ervin Goble, Lloyd Goble, and two infant brothers.

 

Evelyn was a homemaker and a hard-working farm wife.  Being devoted to her family, she was forever interested in the activities and schooling of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Evelyn was a loyal fan to the St. Louis Cardinals and also the Fighting Illini.  She was a member of the Kansas Methodist Church and Ashmore Home Bureau.
