Obituary for Evelyn Luetta Baack

Worthington, MN

     Evelyn Luetta (Hansen) Baack, 82, of Worthington, MN, after enduring a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on September 2, 2009. The past two years she resided at Maple Lawn Nursing Home in Fulda, MN.
     Evelyn was born August 6, 1927, to Sophus & Alvena (Peters) Hansen on a farm near Hubbard, NE. She graduated from Hubbard High School in 1945. At age 19, Evelyn moved to Sioux City, IA and worked as a clerk at JC Penney and then as a receptionist for W. A. Klinger Construction Co. She married Lawrence (Larry) Baack on December 12, 1948 in Sioux City, IA.
     In October 1949, they moved to Canon City, CO. In August 1951, they moved to LeMars, IA and lived there until March 1964. Larry’s employer, Wells Blue Bunny Dairy, transferred him to Worthington, MN to manage the Worthington branch. Evelyn then worked part-time at JC Penney and Fuller Brush Co. In May 1977, they bought Lindsay Water Conditioning in Fairmont, MN. They lived there until December, 1979, when they bought Lindsay Water Conditioning in Worthington, MN. Evelyn was the bookkeeper for both businesses. After Larry passed away in 2000, she worked part-time at the Prairie House in Worthington, MN.
     Evelyn’s greatest dedication and commitment was to raising five children and sharing her strong faith in God. She was always an active member with her church and enjoyed reading her favorite book, the Bible. She and Larry were foster grandparents at the Worthington Elementary School for a few years. Evelyn enjoyed putting jigsaw puzzles together, doing word search puzzles, playing bingo and dominoes, watching “Wheel of Fortune” and spending time with her family.
     Evelyn is survived by five children, Sheryl Cacace of Citrus Heights, CA, David (Diane) Baack of Ramsey, MN, Shar (Jerry) Ebbers of Worthington, MN, Darwin (Kathy) Baack of Minnetrista, MN and Sonya (Randy) Trelstad of Austin, MN. She is also survived by three brothers, Harold Hansen of Phoenix, AZ, Marvin (Laura) Hansen of Hobbs, NM, Raymond (Janice) Hansen of Highland, IN, one sister, Verla Haack of Sioux City, IA, 11 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren (with one more on the way).
     She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry, brother-in-law, Duane Haack, sister-in-law, Mona Hansen, and niece, Gayle Haack Brewer.
     A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, September 15th at 1:30 p.m. at Grace Community Church in Worthington. A private family burial will precede the memorial service at Worthington Cemetery.

Visitation will be held on Monday, September 14th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Benson Funeral Home, Worthington, MN.
