Mrs. Ida Evans, widow of the late Rev. Walcott [Wolcott] H. Evans, passed away, February 19, at Vista, California, aged 71 years, 8 months.

Mrs. Evans was for many years a resident of Wilmington, where Mr. Evans was pastor of Calvary Presbyterian church, and which he promoted by a new church building during his pastorate. From Wilmington they moved to Newhall, where they were both well known, and where Mr. Evans served as pastor of the Community Presbyterian church for sixteen years, resigning in 1930, preparatory to retirement. The family then moved to their new home at Vista, where Mr. Evans passed away a year ago [12-20-1934].
