George Webster Evans
George Webster Evans passed away peacefully on December 18, 2014 in Missoula, at the age of 88 years. He was surrounded by members of his family.
George was born to Hilda Jacobson Evans and Daniel Webster Evans in Deer Lodge, on March 1, 1926, and was raised on the family ranch at Racetrack.
He attended high school in Deer Lodge. He married Carmelita Hagen in Anaconda and they had a long life together. They traveled many places. Hawaii was their favorite and they went there several times.
He worked on the Milwaukee Railroad as a fireman and was on the Deer Lodge police force.
His pride and joy was his restaurant & cocktail lounge he had in the Ballard area of Seattle, Wash., “Hattie’s Hat” which he named after his mother-in law. After over 40 years, the iconic “Hattie’s Hat” is still as popular as ever.
George and his wife Carmy lived in Seattle for many years, and when they decided to retire they moved back to Deer Lodge. George liked working with his horses at the ranch when he was younger, so when he returned to Deer Lodge he helped his brother, Robert in the summers cutting the hay.
The last three years George lived at the Grizzly Peaks Retirement Home in Missoula. He made many friends there.
George is survived by nieces, Diane Enger, Sheri Sonn (Tom), Joyce Ask (Kjartan), Laurie McGee, Linda Quilling, nephews Joe Johnston (Judy), Ben Goldie (Wanda), Gary Enger (Julie), David Enger (Goldie), Elmer McGee, many grand nieces and nephews, friend Mary Riley, and his best friend and companion, his cat “Stubby”.
George was preceded in death by his father Daniel Webster Evans, mother Hilda Jacobson Evans, wife Carmelita Hagen Evans, sisters Julia Goldie, Ruth MacCalman, Elizabeth Johnston, brothers Robert Evans, Orren Evans and Joseph Evans.
A celebration of George’s life will be held at Jewell Funeral Home in Deer Lodge on December 29, 2014 at 11 a.m.
Memorial Contributions may be given to Rocky Mountain Hospice, Missoula or the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital, Spokane, Wash.
