Lorraine Evans

April 24, 1936 — April 30, 2024

Smithfield, Utah

Our beloved wife and mother, Blanche Lorraine Corry Evans slipped peacefully and gracefully from mortality the 30th day of April 2024 at the age of 88.

Lorraine was born April 24, 1936, in Ogden, Utah, into the arms of her loving parents, John P. Corry, and Blanche Nellie Corry and was later joined by her siblings, Carolyn and John.

She started college at Weber State, but completed her undergraduate degree in psychology in 1958 at Utah State University, where she officially became a lifelong Aggie. The social manners Lorraine’s mother taught her, as well as her sense of fashion and beauty, made for a small line of suitors outside her off-campus sorority house. How a fellow Aggie who was a farmer and still living at his family home snuck passed the ever-present house mother is still a question to ponder to this day. 

Lorraine married her best friend, Clyde “Hoot” Tarbet Evans on September 19, 1958, in Ogden, Utah, and they were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan, Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on June 18, 1964. In 1963, they built a home near the Utah State University campus in Logan where they raised their three sons, before relocating to Smithfield, Utah in 2003.

Once all of her boys were in high school, Lorraine worked at First Security Bank for 11 years, until she decided she would rather spend her time golfing, so she retired from the bank to the fairways at the Logan Country Club. Lorraine and Hoot were fervent members of the Country Club for 58 years. They were also devoted Utah State University Football season ticket holders for 56 consecutive years, and they were inducted into Utah State University's Old Main Society in 1998. Lorraine and Hoot traveled to 47 states and over 22 foreign countries together, and have embarked on many cruises, some of their favorite places included China, Singapore, Spain, France, and Puerto Rico. They purchased a home in Yuma, Arizona in 1988 where they spent winters enjoying the warmer weather, social community, and the fish tacos in Los Algodones, Mexico. Lorraine was loved dearly by her friends and served freely in her communities. She served in many Church callings over the years including as Relief Society President and in the Primary. Lorraine was adored by her grandchildren, who were always happy to share a meal and a laugh with Grandma.

Lorraine is survived by her husband, Clyde "Hoot" Tarbet Evans, 3 sons, Scott, Keith (Jodi), Gary (Maryann), 12 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren, who will miss her dearly.  Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents, John P. Corry, and Blanche Nellie Corry, and by her siblings, Carolyn, and John. Rest in peace, dear Mother. You will forever be in our hearts and memories until we meet again.

Funeral service will be held on the 4th day of May at Allen Mortuary, 34 East Center, Logan, UT. Visitation 9:30 -10:30 am, Funeral 11:00 am.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Autumn Care Assisted Living and Intermountain Health Hospice for the compassionate service provided to Lorraine. Condolences may be shared at
