Evelyn S. Dingess-Elliott, 70, North Manchester, Indiana, passed away at 2:46 p.m. on September 21, 2019 at Parkview Wabash Hospital, Wabash, Indiana. Daughter of Lonnie P. and Fannie B. (Wallen) Robinson, Evelyn was born in Silver Lake, Indiana on March 8, 1949.

After graduating from Manchester High School in 1967, Evelyn married Bobbie G. Dingess on August 22, 1969. The two were wed for thirty-four years before Bobbie passed away on December 30, 2003. Evelyn found love again, she married William “Bill” Elliott on July 30, 2016. Even though they were married three years, they built a lifetime of memories and happiness together.

Evelyn spent twenty-seven years working for Sunnyside Egg Farm, North Manchester and then worked for Sunshine Cleaning for three years, before retiring in 2013. Evelyn was a warmhearted woman that enjoyed spending time, talking to, and helping others. This could be seen by the 20+ years she spent volunteering at the North Manchester Fellowship Food Pantry. Evelyn also was a member and volunteered her time at American Legion Post #286 and Vice President of North Manchester American Legion Auxiliary Post #286. She was a member at Laketon Wesleyan Church, Laketon, Indiana. She loved spending time outside, especially tending to her beautiful flowers. She will be missed by everyone that knew her and her dog Abby.
