Obituary of Thoreau Evernden

Thoreau "Jill" Evernden was born in Crowell, TX on August 13, 1934. She attended high school in Kermit, TX and later obtained her Nursing Degree in Baton Rouge, La. She eventually moved to the Lake Tahoe area where she began working in the casino industry, which is where she met Larry, her soul mate, in 1971. Together they moved to Carlin, NV where Larry became a blaster at the Carlin Gold Mine (Newmont). Their love for the outdoors brought them together when they leased a turquoise mine north of Carlin. In Jill's spare time she enjoyed her animals, sewing, making jewelry, being in the outdoors, and spending time in her garden. After losing Larry in 1994, Jill began to do what she and Larry dreamed about. She began to travel. Jill watched the Beluga whales in Alaska, watched the sun set from the mountain tops in Colorado, and she fed tortoises in her Florida back yard. Jill had a way of inspiring people. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Sept. 17, 2011, God extended his hand to Jill to guide her home to the Heavens. Her kind words and wisdom will be greatly missed. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Missing Jill on this Earth: Carol Blackburn (daughter), Autumn Fedor (granddaughter), Chris Fedor (grandson in law) Cheyenne Bernardo (granddaughter), Ezra Bernardo (grandson in law), Kasha deRoos (great granddaughter), Aerowyn Fedor (great granddaughter), Brendon, Nathan, and Evan Bernardo (great grandsons), Sally Teams (sister), Johnnie Romero (sister), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and innumerable lifetime friends. Welcomed into heaven by: Larry Evernden (husband), Ardith Hanson (mother), Cassie Tarra (great niece) and Aunt Nazoma Adams. Bell Tower Funeral Home in Post Falls is in care of arrangements.
