Obituary: Evah Flaten

Posted: Updated:

Mom went home the morning of May 2, 2017, to be with Dad and others that have gone before her.

Evah was born to Louis E. and Daisy (Stiles) Keil on Jan. 24, 1925, she being the next to the oldest of seven. She grew up and went to school in Belgrade, Montana and remained in the general area for her entire life. 

Evah worked as a telephone operator during high school and at the Belgrade hotel. After graduating, Evah worked at the Ration Board during World War II. 

Evah was married to Milford A. Vaught on Dec. 21, 1945, and to this marriage came three children.

Evah cooked and cared for the men on the ranches they lived on, and later worked in many of the cafes and restaurants in the area.

After losing Dad in 1976, Evah married Lawrence A. Flaten on May 21, 1977. Along with Lawrence came Larry and Linda to add to the family. 

Evah sold Avon for 11 years and had a ball doing it, talking with friends she met and engaging in their lives just a little bit, all while she cared for her mother until her death in 1999. 

Preceding her in death are her mother and father; brothers, Everett, Sam, Bud, and Bob; husband, Milford; and husband, Lawrence. 

Survivors include M. Lynn (Tanya) Vaught of Billings, Montana; Sheila Gladden of Supply, North Carolina; Sheryl (Ray) Snell of Gallatin Gateway, Montana; stepchildren, Linda (Larry) Wilcox of Three Forks, Montana and Larry (Nancy) Flaten of Manhattan, Montana.  Also surviving is her brother, Jay Keil of Belgrade; sister, Shirley (Clair) Thunem of Denver, Colorado; along with numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a great-great-grandchild.

Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service.
