Marelo B. Evans, 69, of Eureka, Utah, passed away on 21 April in Rush Valley, Utah.
Marelo B. Evans was born in Payson, Utah to Luby Bogdan and Milka Bogdan on 21 March 1951. She attended and graduated from Tintic High School. She briefly married Steve Evans in Eureka, Utah where they had two children, Tony and Tonya. She was a volunteer for West Juab Ambulance for several years, she talked about it frequently and was proud of the time she spent there. She eventually moved to Dugway, Utah where she served as a Civil Service Employee for Non-Appropriated funds for 35 years, retiring as the Manager of the Ditto Diner. She never failed to speak her mind and tell you what you probably didn’t want to hear, friends and patrons learned what “Have a Ditto Diner Nice Day” meant. For years she was the Hotrod Grandma, driving around Dugway in her Beretta GT then the Mustang GT she snagged from Tonya. Upon retirement she found her love and passion as a Volunteer for Mountain West Medical Center in Tooele, Utah. There she made many friends and looked forward to each time she got to volunteer. We would like to thank this program and the great people that volunteer.
Marelo is preceded in death by her Parents, Luby and Milka Bogdan, son, Tony Evans, brother, John Bogdan and sisters, Violet (Teddy) VanAusdale, Mary (Jerry) Wilde and Angie Maxwell.
Marelo is survived by her daughter Tonya (Jeff) Wintle, brother Charles Davis her grandchildren, Preston Edwards, Stephanie (Riley) Hopes, Abbie Wintle and great grandchildren, Mason Hopes and Addyson Edwards.

The family of Marelo Evans wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Alma Parker, Mountain West Medical center and all the volunteers she so dearly loved.
