A Nearby Relative I Never Knew

Last Saturday an obituary appeared in The Denver Post for a woman I never knew. Her name was Barbara Ann Evert, and she was my third cousin. The sad thing is that she lived just a few miles from me. She descended from a line of Everts I could not find when I compiled a family genealogy a dozen years ago. Who could have known that she was virtually a neighbor? Barbara sounds like someone I would have liked. She passed away at the age of 77 after falling while hiking in the Grand Canyon. Barbara, I am sorry that you and yours do not appear in my book. You are now gathered back in with the rest of us on the website.
