Her memorial service was Thursday at 10 a.m. at McEwen Bible Fellowship Church, with Pastor William Cox officiating.

Cremation was at Gray’s West Pioneer Crematory.

Mrs. Haley was born Dec. 6, 1938, at Yuba City, Calif. Evie, as she was known by all, graduated from Modesto High School in Modesto, Calif. She attended Modesto Junior College and later obtained her degree in nursing at the University of Nevada. She also took specialized classes at Truckee Meadows Community College.

She began her nursing career as a Licensed Vocational Nurse. She then was an entrepreneur, owning several businesses. She returned to nursing as a Registered Nurse with the Washoe Medical System in Reno, Nev., ultimately becoming the system’s supervisor of critical care.

She and her husband, Jerry, moved to Sumpter Valley in 1997. She took a position as a Registered Nurse at St. Elizabeth Health Services in Baker City. By nature a very competent and caring person, she was extremely well-liked by her patients as well as by her fellow workers and supervisors.

Mrs. Haley’s hobbies included fishing and other outdoor activities, antiques, flea markets and “whirligigs,” which she made in her shop. She was a volunteer with the Emergency Medical Services unit of the Powder River Rural Fire Department.
