Evelyn Fae Robison Porter

Evelyn Fae Robison Porter was born January 11, 1935 in Elk City, Oklahoma to Orville Bliss and Dora Mae (Abbott) Robison. She passed away at her home near Reydon, Oklahoma on February 5, 2019 at the age of 84. 


Evelyn attended school at Reydon and married JT Porter on March 1, 1952 at Hammon, Oklahoma. Born to this union were three children: James, Billy and Shirley. Evelyn and JT lived in Pampa, Texas and in 1953 moved back to Reydon to make their home where they farmed and ranched. Evelyn worked alongside JT on the farm and loved to sew and take care of others. Evelyn won many ribbons at the county fair for her sewing, quilting, baking, canning and flowers.  But, her passion in life was her family and especially spending time with her grandchildren and her dog, Wiggles.
