Evelyn Charlotte Slater of Washington MO passed away of COVID-19 on April 15, 2020 at the age of 92. She was married in 1950 and had six children. Evelyn was a kind, nurturing woman. Besides taking excellent care of her husband (who preceded her in 2009) and family, she worked for many years as a nurse’s aid.

Evelyn died a few days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Her son told the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

“I wish people would take it more seriously,” said Joseph Slater. “You see folks walking around without masks, or looking at the social distancing thing like it’s not a serious issue. But it really is.”

Evelyn is missed by 19 great grandchildren, her large family, and the many friends she left behind.
