Theresa B. (Ludwig) Evens

April 19, 1928 — April 30, 2020

Age: 92 April 19, 1928 – April 30, 2020 Theresa B. (Ludwig) Evens passed away, surrounded by her children, on April 30, 2020 at the age of 92. She was born to Henry and Stella (Keppers) Ludwig on April 19, 1928, and was one of seven children. At the age of two, Theresa lost her mother, and years later her father married Marie Keppers. That union brought three more siblings to the Ludwig family. Theresa married Jerry Evens on May 6, 1950. After a stint in the Army, Jerry and Theresa returned to Albany and had four children. Theresa was employed by Mother of Mercy Nursing Home for over 35 years. She was awarded the Minnesota Caregiver of the Year for District D, in 1991, and was also awarded the Diocese of St. Cloud Bishop’s Medal of Merit that same year. Jerry and Theresa were avid collectors of Red Wing Stoneware and Pottery and enjoyed traveling to auctions and Red Wing conventions. In recent years, Theresa commented that her life consisted of three C’s:  Church, Crocheting, and Cards. She was an avid (and ruthless) player of 500, and crocheted over 350 prayer shawls for her community. Theresa had great wit, an easy smile, and for her, there truly was no place like home. Theresa is survived by children Joan (Don) Jackson of Reno NV, Patricia (Peter) Meelberg of Knoxville TN, Jack of Albany, and Jane (Gary) Simbeck of Pensacola, FL. She is also survived by six grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, sister Mary (Ron) Sadlowsky of Avon MN, brother Daniel (Mary) Ludwig of Red Wing MN, and cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by spouse, Jerry, father Henry and mothers Stella and Marie, brothers George, Francis, Vincent and John, sisters Lucy, Rita and Margaret, and daughter in law Deborah. She was a member of Seven Dolors Catholic Church, the Christian Mothers Society, the Albany American Legion Auxiliary, and the Red Wing Collector’s Society.
