Evelyn Marie Williams, 87, Osage City: July 30, 1934 – Aug. 27, 2021

OSAGE CITY, Kan. – Evelyn Marie Williams, 87, of Osage City, Kan., passed away Aug. 27, 2021. Evelyn was born July 30, 1934, in Burlingame, Kan., to her parents Jesse and Eva (Saffle) Mundy.

She spent her childhood in Burlingame, and attended Burlingame High School until her senior year, when she attended and graduated from Topeka High School.

In December 1950, she was united in marriage to Floyd “Bud” Williams. To this union they had four children, Dan, Teresa, Mike, and Dave. The family lived in Scranton, Kan., for around 30 years, until eventually relocating to Osage City.

Over her life, Evelyn worked in various places, including grocery stores, bartending, and 16 years at Hallmark. She retired from Frito Lay after 30 years, where she started in packing, working all the way up to quality control supervisor. In her free time she enjoyed gardening, spending a lot of time outside caring for her flowers.

Evelyn was a 38-year member of Eagles Auxiliary 3890, Osage City. She was an avid KU fan, sometimes making friendly wagers with family members who supported K-State on who would win when they played head-to-head. She adored her great-granddaughter, Ashlyn Asbury, whom she says was the apple of her eye, and Evelyn hopes that she misses her.

Preceding her in death is her husband, Bud Williams; sons, Mike Williams and Dave Williams; two grandchildren, Justin Wayne Asbury and Brian James Asbury; brothers, Raymond Dale Mundy and Bud Mundy; and three sisters, Mary Beth, Joyce Ann, and Lillian Rae.

Evelyn is survived by her daughter, Teresa Knight, of Osage City; son, Dan Williams (Carol), Elkhart, Ind.; sisters, Judy Billings and Kathy Mizer; three grandkids, Garth Asbury, Jason Williams, and Kevin Williams; three great-grandkids, James Williams, Ashlyn Asbury, and Anthony Asbury; and several great-great grandchildren.

A celebration of life for Evelyn will be held at a later date. Condolences can be sent in care of VanArsdale Funeral Chapel, 107 N. Sixth St., Osage City, KS 66523.
