Evelyn Libersky

She was born to John and Tena (Koenen) Ruiter on Sept. 19, 1922. After traveling with her father’s work as railroad depot agent, Evelyn’s family made Lyle their home. As a young woman, she worked at the local soda fountain where she met Ray Wayne Libersky. She married Wayne on Sept. 1, 1945, in Nashua, Iowa, upon his return from WWII. They built their home in Lyle where she lived for more than 65 years. Evelyn will be remembered for her vibrant personality, homemade doughnuts, flower garden, ornate quilts and deep love for her family and friends.

She is survived by her grandson, Jason Libersky (Manuela); and daughter-in-law, Dee Libersky.
