Cecile J. Nadeau Evens

WESTPORT — Cecile J. Nadeau Evens, 71, of Windy Valley Farm, passed away Sunday, Nov. 11, at the home farm. She was born July 19, 1941, in Ticonderoga to Norman S. Nadeau Sr. and Pearl Denno Nadeau.

Cecile grew up at the Nadeau Riding Stable in Ticonderoga and later met and married her forever soul-mate, Ralph A. Evens Jr. on Jan. 17, 1957, in Ticonderoga. They spent many of their 55 years of marriage raising their six children on the family farms in Westport. She was predeceased by her husband on Nov. 3, 2012.

In her younger years, Cecile loved riding horses in various town parades and was rather proud of carrying the American Flag. She was a lifelong homemaker, farmer, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Cecile enjoyed spending her days with Ralph exploring the countryside. She also loved shooting hoops, writing, reading, going to fairs, and gardening. She believed in angels and loved collecting them and cows. She will be remembered for having adventures with her best friend and sister, Donna. What she enjoyed the most was spending time with her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her son Mark and his wife Diana, with their children, Joan and her husband Jeremy Doyle, daughter Shannon and Kevin; her son, Brian and his children, Bryan, April and her companion John Marshall and children, Gabriel and Cyle; her son, Peter and his wife Katrina, and their children, Jamie and her husband Mike LaBarge and their daughters, Claire and Caitlin, and Jennifer and her husband Curtis Seegars and their children, Matthew and Mya; her son, William and his wife Sally, and their children, Martin, Leslie and her husband Tom Reynolds, and their son Shelton; her daughter, Kelly and her husband Dwayne Stevens, and their children, John and his wife Chloe, Joshua, and Jessie; her daughter, Tina and Timothy Wright, and children, Brandon, Rachael, Bruce, Tucker, Trevor, and Timothy Spencer, and an "adopted" granddaughter, Lydia Wuest. She is also survived by her siblings, Norman Nadeau Jr., Sheila Witherbee, Katherine Jean Charboneau, Barbara Reeb, Barbara Nadeau and Donna Leavens; her husband's siblings, George Evens Sr. and his wife Sally, Marjorie Eaton, Joan Czarnecki, Lawrence Evens Sr. and his wife Doris, John Evens and fiance' Darlene Budwick, Earl Evens, Ann Dushane and her husband Howard, and Thomas Evens Sr. and his wife Donna; and her friend, Audrey Evens.
