Della was born on October 3, 1934 in Lewisville, Ohio. She grew up in the Wellsburg, West Virginia area and married William W. Evans in 1952. The family moved to Pompano Beach Florida in 1963 where they raised their eight children. Della and her children moved to the Florida panhandle in the mid 1990’s after Bill’s death. She lived in Malone until recently when she moved to Marianna so her daughter could care for her.

She loved being outdoors and spent her later years researching and documenting family history. She lived a good life, surrounded by those who loved her so much.
