Evelyn (Weber) Rumrey was born on December 22, 1914, at New Rockford, ND, to Nicholas and Catherine (Kline) Weber. In 1923, she and her family moved to Aberdeen where she was raised and attended school.
Evelyn was united in marriage to Edmund Davis Rumrey on April 18, 1942, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Aberdeen. The couple made Aberdeen their home where Dolly was employed at Beatrice Creamery, Kresge five and dime department store, Franklyn Dairy, and Malchow’s. She then became the co-owner of Dolly’s Draperies with her sister, Vi Lorenzen and later worked at the Finishing Touch. Dolly continued making drapes until she was 99 years old. She and Edmund shared 43 years of marriage and raised five children together before he passed away on July 9, 1985. Dolly continued to reside in Aberdeen until the time of her death.
