     Evelyn Angeline Pabich was born on March 30, 1917 in Chicago, IL, the daughter of John and Stella (Sniegowski) Pabich. In 1921, her family moved to Thorp where she was raised on a farm and received her education, graduating from Thorp High School in 1935. She was united in marriage to Edward L.
