Evelyn F. (Gilder) Williamson

December 14, 1918 - January 13, 2013
Obituary

Evelyn Williamson passed peacefully away on 1/13/13. She was Teacher of the Year in 1967. She was born in Durant on 12/14/18 and the youngest of ten in an education focused family.

In the mid 1950's she settled at NW Classen. Her side-interest in politics inspired her to create a student-project in the early 1960's to have students go to the Capitol and ask legislators if they would support a bill containing certain language, not telling them that each phrase was one of the Bill of Rights. This landed her in an article in TIME magazine. Having no children of her own, she considered her nieces and nephews plus her former students as her "children". After retiring in 1977 she joined her husband in an antiques appraisal business.

Memorial donations may be made in Eve's memory to a charity of your choice.
