It is with great sadness that the family of Nadine Reba Love Evans announces her passing on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at the age of 81 years. Nadine will be lovingly remembered by her three daughters, Charlotte Evans, of Ponca City, Sherry Behzadnia and husband Hamid, of San Jose, Calif. and Kristi Bucher, of Bartlesville. She will also be lovingly remembered by her four grandchildren, Laila Coniglio and husband IJ, Kelby Johnson and wife Rita, Rana Behzadnia and Mark Pearson and Ashlea Bucher and Micah Sartin; great-grandchildren, Adrianne and Amelia Johnson; sisters, Charlene Robinson and Vicki Case and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Allen; parents, Orville and Mary Love; three siblings, Twila Jones, Melvin Love and Robert Love; beloved aunt, Clara Kodesh and dear friend, Judy Waller.
She was born in Billings, on March 17, 1937. She briefly lived in Illinois, but returned to Marland, where she attended school and worked in the family café. In 1954, she married Allen R. Evans, of Ponca City, where they made their home.
While she enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom, she also owned a hair salon, Cameo Beauty Salon, located on Ranch Drive. They moved their home to Osage County in 1976.
In 1980, their business, Evans Engineering Consultant Inc., was also moved to Osage County, where they worked and lived until their deaths. She had other jobs throughout her life including working at the Poncan Theater, G.H.R. Manufacturing, Jean’s Lasso and Online Communications until she retired in 1997. Her hobbies included bowling and horseshoes, winning state tournaments in both and playing gin rummy and bingo with friends. She spent her summers on trail rides and went on vacations with family. Nadine enjoyed spending time with her grandkids and great-grandkids and will be truly missed.
No service will be held at this time. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Nadine to Hospice of North Central Oklahoma or their favorite charity.
